New York rapper Jay Critch feels a certain type of way about not landing on XXL’s annual Freshman list. The hip-hop rookie has stepped forward to fire a direct shot at the hip-hop publication over getting snubbed from its 2018 roundup.

Critch went to Twitter this week and didn’t hold back his feelings toward the rap magazine. The Brooklyn native questioned the importance of Freshman lists.

A few days ago, Def Jam rap veteran 2 Chainz singled out XXL for missing out on highlighting rap newcomers like Tee Grizzley and Tekashi 6ix9ine.

Recently, hip-hop veteran Mysonne talked to SOHH about his issues with the annual list.

“My opinion of the XXL Freshman class is it appears to only appeal to one demographic and one particular style and genre of music. It doesn’t appeal to everyone. Most of those artists have similarities. I also think Don Q should definitely be on the Freshman list and you know it is an injustice that he’s not there! He should’ve been there last year but I’ve lost all faith in the XXL Freshman class. There was a time when I just had decided to pretty much boycott it so I’m not surprised at the lack of diversity or lack of what I will call talent in the class.” (SOHH)

Back in March, Migos’ Quavo shared words of encouragement toward Canadian hip-hop artist Nav over getting snubbed by XXL for its latest roundup.
