Lil Yachty was a member of XXL's 2016 Freshman Class, making it as the 10th Spot fan pick.
In an interview with Hypebeast, Boat speaks on the 2017 class of Kyle, Aminé, Ugly God, Playboi Carti, PnB Rock, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Madeintyo, Kap G, Kamaiyah and 10th Spot winner XXXTentacion.
"Of course my favorite is Ugly God. He’s my brother, but I love XXXTentacion, Playboi Carti and MADEINTYO. I love Kamaiyah, she’s like my big sister," Boat says. "Actually, the whole class is fire. I feel like they bullshitted their cypher. I love the people though, they make great music."Do you agree that the 2017 XXL cyphers didn't live up to standards that Yachty's and the rest of the previous Freshman classes had established?
