For the first 2020 XXL Freshman Freestyle we got to see NLE Choppa spit a few bars here. Next up is Chicago’s own 21 year old Polo G signed to Columbia Records. He talks about wanting to rap before he knew what XXL was and unveils his musical influences.
“Artists that I paid a lot of attention to was Lil Wayne and every rapper that was coming out of Chicago. I rock with Meek Mill, too. [Lil Wayne’s] lyricism made me wanna be bar-heavy.” – Polo G
