Stefflon Don makes history on XXL Freshman class cover

SUCCESS: Stefflon Don

IF YOU didn't know Stefflon Don is one of the UK's hottest British hip-hop exports, her appearance on XXL Freshman class list may change things.

Steff serves as the first UK artist to make the annual cover, and sits alongside the likes of Florida representatives Lil Pump, SmokePurpp, Wifisfuneral and Ski Mask The Slump God, Atlanta’s J.I.D., Memphis’ Blocboy JB, Ohio’s Trippie Redd and Alabama’s YBN Nahmir.

All of the acts involved have built strong fanbases and racked up accolades - and controversy - over the past year.

Posting the cover on her Instagram page, The Hurtin Me artist said: "what a time to be alive ???????? @xxl #SECURE"

Despite her excitement, many hip-hop fans have criticised the list and complained about this year's selection on social media, noting the lack of female talent featured and why.
