One of Hip-Hop’s annual traditions is the highly-touted XXL Freshmen list. Every year, the longstanding publication selects a class of artists who are poised to Take Off in a big way. One of the leaders of 2014 class is Michigan native and Aftermath signee, Jon Connor (even though he already has more than 40 features here at The DJBooth). To celebrate, Connor employs a high-octane beat from Mr. Porter to show exactly why he was a selection. With a blistering, stalwart flow and some brash bars he makes a strong case. To hear more about this ever-promising XXL Freshman, check out his guest spot on Suspect’s single Reflections.
