There has been much speculation as to why G Herbo was not selected on the 2015 XXL Freshman cover.
XXL Editor-In-Chief Vanessa Satten ended all speculation when asked about Herb’s exclusion during her sit-down interview on Power 105’s The Breakfast Club.
“That’s one we got a lot of votes, a lot of press the year before, but we felt he was going through kind of a management change the year before, shifting over to some new people,” Satten said. “He’s with Johnny Shipes and Cinematic. He’s got a few other support systems right now. He seems like he’s young and he’s right in a good spot right now.”
Satten went on to question what Herb did last year to earn him a spot on the cover.
“…What did G Herbo do last year that would’ve shown that he should’ve been there,” she continued. “I think that’s a very young guy who got a buzz early on, but has been trying to find his way in a kinda label management system that’s right for him. I think he spent a lot of last year settling into that.”
