The summer just keeps getting hotter, as XXL Freshman Class continues to set the music scene ablaze. Members of the XXL Freshman Class include Megan Thee Stallion, DaBaby, Tierra Whack, Rico Nasty, Blueface, Roddy Ricch, Lil Mosey, YK Osiris, and more. Today, XXL released this first of its Freshman Cyphers.
Today’s cypher featured four of the rappers off of their 2019 Freshman class: Megan Thee Stallion, DaBaby, Lil Mosey, and YK Osiris. The beat came courtesy of D-Fresh and was executed in the video by DJ Scheme. The video itself was directed by Travis Satten.
The cypher starts off with Seattle rapper, Lil Mosey. He starts off the cypher with his mellow flow, delivering bars in his signature style. Houston rapper, Megan Thee Stallion, takes the mic next. She hypes up and kills the beat with her precise flow. Meg posted a clip of the cypher on social media, reaffirming her title as 1 Take Meg.
Next up was YK Osiris, who did a combination of singing and rapping over the beat. The Jacksonville, Florida artist rides the beat almost effortlessly and demonstrates his skills in both crafts. North Carolina’s own DaBaby was last up, but certainly not least. Closing off the cypher, he had no choice but to come hard, and he did not disappoint. Riding the beat longer than the three rappers before him, he flexes he freestyle skills while also staying true to his antics, namely pulling a stack of cash out of his pocket and tossing it on the floor.
The XXL Freshman Cyphers will surely keep coming. Check the first one out now!
