XXL Freshmen 2015
To be on the XXL Freshmen cover is the most sought after. The XXL magazine does a top 10 every year, and fans can then vote for who they think is the top 10 up and coming artists. It’s meant to shine spotlight on all the new talents.
Kidd Kidd went on to do a cypher with K Camp, Tink and Raury.
In the weeks leading to the voting dates, Kidd Kidd went to drop some new music in order to get more votes. He dropped the song ‘From Nothin’ a few weeks before the voting started which was March 16 – 2015 – Kidd Kidd eventually won the 10th spot on a fan-voted last spot, and he ended up getting on the magazine and you could say that his hard work had finally payed off
