Nav Rips XXL Freshman List; Freshman Alum Agrees


Nav is on many people's shortlist for the 2018 XXL Freshman list.

And a few days ago he dropped a track called "Freshman List."

But don't let that fool you. The Canadian artist wants no part of the honor.

He jumped on social today and ripped XXL for being irrelevant. 

"I wouldn’t show up for the freshman list" FUCK @XXL YOUR MAGAZINE IS TRASH🚮🚮SORRY WEBSITE 😂😂. 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 😈

His anti-XXL Freshman List messages were co-signed by tens of thousands.

Interestingly, 2017 Freshman PnB Rock was among those who signed off on his words.

Do you think the Freshman List is still relevant?
