Lil Skies is undeniably one of the most talented artists to emerge on the rap scene in the last year. He instantly rose to the top after releasing his project, Life Of A Dark Rose, which peaked in the top 10 R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts in January 2018.
Rumors surrounded the XXL Freshmen List after Skies name was nowhere to be found, especially after the buzz surrounding his name over the past year. Recent rumors surfaced that the rapper declined the XXL Freshmen list. Skies now confirmed the rumors are true and he’s revealed why he decided to turn it down.
The Pennsylvania rapper took to Instagram to claim the XXL Freshmen List is rigged. Skies explained that XXL reached out to him months ago, offering for him to be on the Freshmen cover, prior to the voting process even beginning.
“XXL reached out to me months ago, bro, and chose me to be a Freshmen before the fans even get to vote”, Skies said in the video. “When you guys were allowed to vote, I still won. I still got on the list. Even before that, they chose me to be on the XXL Freshmen.”
