Past issues have shined light on heavy hitters like Big Sean, Wiz Khalifa and Freddie Gibbs. However, it should also be noted that XXL has also predicted greatness from one-and-done emcees like Charles Hamilton and Rich Boy. At this year’s SLC Rise Up Festival, rap fans will get a glimpse at two of XXL’s Freshman elite: Ruthless Records rapper Hopsin (Freshman Class of 2012) and Las Vegas-based young’un Dizzy Wright (Freshman Class of 2013).
