Watch XXXTentacion’s 2017 XXL Freshman Freestyle

blame it on Meka June 30, 2017

Ok… so this threw me all the way off.

As I stated earlier when XXL revealed their 2017 Freshman class, I did not give any critique about XXXTentacion because A: I know him more for his issues and fights with Rob $tone than for his own music, B: the one song I do know, “Look At Me,” caused a rift with Drake, and C: the many legal issues he faces.

So color me surprised when I listened to his Freshman Freestyle, and lo and behold he had the most lyrically dense session out of all ten artists. In less than 40 seconds he name-checks J. Cole, drops knowledge about the lie that is Christopher Columbus, divulges his thoughts on Jesus Christ, and more. It got a bit murky towards the end, but… wow. I’m impressed.
