Icy Narco’s Pitch for 2019 XXL Freshman
Before the 2019 XXL Freshman class will be revealed this summer, the Freshman hopefuls are here to show and prove why they deserve a spot in this year’s class. The 10th Spot voting will launch on March 25, which means hip-hop's rising newcomers are vying for a spot on the 2019 XXL Freshman cover.
Icy Narco is one of the latest in a long line of rappers breaking out of the South Florida rap scene. The 20-year-old Miami artist started making noise in 2017, with the SoundCloud tracks “You” and “Viagra Niagra.” The banger “#RonnyJKilledThis,” released last January, would catapult him into the underground spotlight after gaining over 2 million streams via the streaming service. Follow-up tracks “Legend,” with Jimmy Duval, the beat maker behind the late XXXTentacion’s breakout single, “Look at Me!,” “Link” and “Numb and Frozen” would garner even more attention for the genre-bending rhymer.
10K Projects exec Elliot Grainge signed Narco to his label in 2018, adding him to a roster that includes Trippie Redd and 6ix9ine. Icy’s debut album, Frozen Fable, is currently being prepped and will feature production from Ronny J, Southside, Scott Storch and more. Cold world.
Now that you've heard his pitch, remember to vote for your favorite artist beginning March 25. The 2019 XXL Freshman 10th Spot will run for one week. This is where the public gets the chance to vote an artist into the XXL Freshman Class. Go here to make your vote count for your favorite artist.
