Kreayshawn. Loverance. iamsu!. Roach Gigz. Young Gully. HD. A-1. Thizzler.com's Bay Area Freshmen 10 has a 3 year history of putting the spotlight on future Bay Area stars before they blow up. And with another year in the books, it's time to figure out who's next with the Class of 2013.
The Bay Area Freshmen 10 uses a unique process to discover the Bay Area artists that are next up. First, we get the popular vote of Bay Area fans, via Twitter, Facebook & www.thizzler.com. Then, the top 30 contenders are announced & introduced to the world while a panel of Bay Area veterans & tastemakers (this year's panel includes Hieroglyphics, E-A-SKI, San Quinn, DJ Amen of 106 KMEL, local record store chain Rasputin Records & more) narrow the list down to a select 10, who become the year's Bay Area Freshmen class.After being enrolled, all Bay Area Freshmen are invited to participate in collaborative studio sessions, mixtapes, & other opportunities, including an Orientation concert, filmed cyphers, and a Bay Area Freshmen album.
