My Thoughts On The 1st XXL 2019 Freshman Cypher:
2. Megan Thee Stallion
3. YK Osiris
4. Lil Mosey
Overall Rating: 6.5/10
Today XXL released the first of 2019’s freshman cyphers, consisting of: DaBaby, Lil Mosey, Megan Thee Stallion and YK Osiris. I felt like the cypher was very strong in some areas but terribly weak in others. For example, Lil Mosey may of well just not have been there, he went first and his appearance was easily the least memorable as it was boring despite it being very short, I don’t think anyone will be coming back to this Cypher to listen to his verse ☠️. Megan Thee Stallion went next and her verse suprised me a lot because I wasn’t expecting her to do as well as she did, her verse was extremely interesting and aggressive making it very enjoyable to listen to which is why she has 2nd place on my list. YK Osiris came up next, I hadn’t heard much from him before this and so didn’t really know what to expect but I enjoyed his verse, definitely didn’t think it was anything crazy but it was easily better than Lil Mosey’s imo, I can definitely see him making some great hooks in the future. Finally, DaBaby was up last, I noticed that there were around 2 minutes left and so DaBaby had the longest verse by quite a bit, and to my suprise he was able to create a very entertaining verse switching his flow a few times and delivering funny bars as he always does, that’s why his verse comes in above Megan Thee Stallion at first place although it was pretty close between those two. Overall, this was a solid cypher although it could’ve been much better had Lil Mosey delivered a more energetic and interesting verse.
What did you think of this Cypher? Who’s performance did you enjoy the most? Let me know.
