The annual XXL Freshman list has arrived, naming nine names the hip-hop publication believes will be the next biggest thing.
Some of them already are the next big thing. Lil Pump has had a massive hit with Gucci Gang, Stefflon Don has already nabbed a top 10 in the UK and BlocBoy JB grabbed a top 10 in the US with Drake.
The rest of the class includes Ski Mask the Slump God, Smokepurpp, J.I.D., Trippie Redd, YBN Nahmir and Wifisfuneral.
The list has a pretty good track record with picking the next crop. Last year's list featured Playboi Carti and Aminé while the year before boasted 21 Savage and Lil Uzi Vert.
