Every year XXL Magazine picks around 10 music artists, labeled the "Freshman," who they think are the next ones to watch out for in hip hop. Personally, I think XXL got the list only about half right but that's another discussion. Last Tuesday night, March 22nd, some friends and I headed down to B.B. King's (right in the madness of Times Square) to see the XXL's freshman choices perform and prove that they deserved their seat in hip hop's talented up and coming classroom.
Also, I was further back in the crowd than these shots make it seem. Luckily, I had my trusty zoom lens with me and was able to capture some moments from the show. Check the caption below each picture to see which artist is being shown. Enjoy!
