XXL Magazine unveiled their Freshmen for 2010, the 10 rappers to watch blow up this year. The list is made up of MC’s who have really already emerged with mixtapes or even albums and there is the obvious idiotic gangsta crap lodged in there for mass appeal. However in among the chaff are some genuine prospects that deserve attention. Most notably perhaps is Fresno rapper Fashawn who last year released an Exile helmed album, Boy Meets World that was justifiably very well received. Reminiscent of Blu’s Below The Heavens it is a great showcase of an engaging talent that rhymes with intelligence, self deprecation and a perspective beyond his 21 years . Hit the link for a bunch of videos and a download of Boy Meets World.
