Dear XXL Magazine, I'm Appauled

This is so disrespectful.

As you may or may not know, hip hop magazine XXL makes a "XXL Freshmen" list of the top ten up-and-comers for each year.  And, just like XXL's richer, more successful media conglomerate cousin MTV and its "Hottest MCs in the Game" list, the "XXL Freshmen" list is usually complete bullshit and a travesty to anyone who appreciates good hip hop.

Well, this year is extraordinary.  No, not the kind of extraordinary where you get an A on your math test AND find a $100 bill on the ground.  More like the the kind where you go to the hospital because you're worried about a spot on your arm and then you find out you have AIDS.  Extraordinary!

I'm talking, of course, about OJ Da Juiceman's inclusion on this year's Freshmen list.  Don't worry, unless you work in a trap house or reside in the Eastside of Atlanta, you've probably never heard of OJ Da Juiceman.  And for good reason.  He's a musical Ebola virus; "Make Tha Trap Say Aye" literally makes me bleed through my ears.

Just watch his "XXL Freshmen" freestyle video above... Who raps "basketball player" with "basketball player"?  It's a shame he's being mentioned with such talented young stars like Big Sean and J. Cole.  iQuit for today.
