The Adult Rapper Episode

The Adult Rapper Episode

Chart positions

This show was 25th in the global rap chart and 83rd in the global hip hop chart.

​Most hip-hop fans are familiar with XXL's annual "Freshman" class of up-and-coming rappers. As rap music--and its fans--get older, we thought it would be fun to discuss which rappers are part of the Sophomore, Junior and Senior classes. In this episode, we try to answer the following questions: What does it it take to become an Upperclassmen? What keeps hip-hop Freshman from moving on to the next class and into long-term success? What does a mature hip-hop career look like? Whose next to graduate?

We also highlight a documentary that served as an inspiration for this episode: "Adult Rappers." The hour-long film can be viewed here:

Thanks to our special guests, Michael and Marques, for coming on the show.

I will say, I love the concepts, and I have NO problem listening to the lady on the show. She's dope too!!! Thanks 4 talking about that documentary. I'm gonna check it out.

I like listening to the show, but I ALWAYS disagree with something these folks say. You need your fact checker ready because they are full of incorrect information. Besides that, this series is alright. Get that knowledge up or add your boy RBanga! to elevate your shit. Also: Big Sean is NOT > Kendrick. Y'all didn't "say" that, but it is insinuated. SMDh.
