Still committed on changing the pace of hip-hop music in a more positive direction, Chance The Rapper stuns the audience and many onlookers at home with a profound performance of his song “Blessings (Reprise)” from the current album Coloring Book.

Tagging along with Chance were the likes of Raury, Ty Dolla Sign, Anthony Hamilton and D.R.A.M. who each added their own vocal flavor to the Fred Hammond inspired song, paired with choir all decked out in white robes throughout the aisles; spreading the gospel cheer.

This is definitely one performance you will not forget.

The 2015 XXL Freshman Class Is Here

 

2015-xxl-freshman-cover

And just when the debates start flowing in….

Check out the new 2015 XXL Freshman Class cover featuring Raury, Fetty Wap, Dej Loaf, Vince Staples, K Camp, OG Maco, Sly Glizzy, Gold Link, Tink and Kidd Kidd (earned the fan-voted 10th spot). The cover was shot secretly with almost 100 people on-set. All, who had to sign agreements of NO social media and/or picture taking whatsoever.

You have to admit, this cover is quite accurate at this very moment. Representing cities of the ATL, L.A. to the DMV, and proteges of 50 Cent to Timbaland, the featured ten have a few trending records that are consistently on radio and club play, and have been on our radars for sometime now.

Great job XXL!
