(AllHipHop News) Earlier this week, Nav went on a mini-rant blasting XXL‘s Freshman Class list. The rapper/producer tweeted, “F-ck XXL your magazine is trash.”
He later posted, “To my fellow artists. We shouldn’t look to a magazine for validation or to tell us if we “hot or not”, especially one that hasn’t been credible for 10 years. [XXL] Make music for yourself and your fans. I would never show up for the Freshman List cuz I don’t need their approval.”
Nav got an online co-sign from one of the biggest rappers at the moment. Migos member Quavo jumped on the social media site to offer support to the XO representative.
“Don’t Trip [Nav]. [XXL] didn’t pick Migos either!!!! [F-ck] XXL,” wrote Quavo.
Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff are not the only chart-topping acts to be omitted from the magazine’s list of emerging rappers. Drake, Nicki Minaj, ASAP Rocky, Cardi B, and others were never XXL Freshmen either.
