XXL just released its always-controversial - but usually on-point - annual list of the best and the brightest new faces in hip-hop.
I’ll admit I’m not totally familiar with most of these dudes, though the inclusions I am familiar with seem sound - love Danny Brown, not quite sold on French Montana - even though I just can’t stand bone-simple R&B robot Future. And while it’s nice to see Iggy Azalea repping for the ladies, I would’ve preferred to see her similarly named contemporary, the fabulous and fabulously talented Azealia Banks. And it’s too bad they slept on Boldy James, Main Attrakionz, and Schoolboy Q. In general, though, spilling some ink on lesser-known quantities is always something I’m in favor of.
