After years and years of complaining and writing about NO Chicago acts landing on XXL’s coveted Freshmen 10 cover, this year we’re looking at a total of 10 possibly making it. Yeah you read that correctly: eight. This evening, XXL Magazine released the list of possibly nominees and a ballot for you to cast your vote. XXL will pick 9, and the artist with the most votes will earn the 10th spot. I’m thinking the Chi will at least have 4 spots on the cover. What do you think?

Chance The Rapper
Chief Keef
King Louie
Lil Durk
Lil Reese
Rockie Fresh
