2019 XXL Freshman ‘Bullied Online’

Chances are if you have any kind of social media account, you can believe how nasty and unhappy people can be in their lives. Every year XXL releases their line up of the next upcoming stars to make it in the hip hop world. The gag is, that some of the people selected to make the cut aren’t always well known enough by the masses, which can lead to some not so nice things to say online. It is a golden pass in the music world to make such a prestigious leap onto the cover of one of the most credible publications in the game. Some artists who make it to the cover go on to become even bigger stars, while some remain successful independent artists. Either way the nod of approval is a win for anyone looking to strive in the business. The publication posted a video online of the ‘Freshman Class’ reading mean comments about themselves posted by online trolls. The good part is they took it with a grain of salt, and handled the situation like a champ. Any artist knows not to pay attention to what the haters are posting and continue to be consistent and have composure so all the miserable bitter Bettys at home, Congratulations again to Comethazine, Tierra Whack, DaBaby, Lil Mosey, Roddy Ricch, YBN Cordae, YK Osiris, Rico Nasty, Megan Thee Stallion and Blueface the winners who made this years cover.
