After an alleged list of potential 2012 XXL Freshmen leaked earlier this week, there has been a significant buzz surrounding some of the big names both on and off the list, one of the latter being Sir Michael Rocks. In addition to A$AP Rocky and Danny Brown, Sir Michael Rocks is perhaps one of the most fitting candidates for the XXL Freshman 2012 cover that was not included on the leaked list. Of course, there’s no known credibility to the list of 17 “possibilities” for the annual February/March issue that began floating around the internet a few days ago, but regardless, a petition has been started by Sir Michael Rocks’ fans to put him on the cover of the XXL Freshman 2012 cover.
According to the petition’s mission:
“From Cool Kids to Jetlife, Sir Michael Rocks has been giving us fresh musicand showing his fans love and support. Let XXL know that Sir Michael Rocks is a freshman with the pedigree to be class president for 2012. Let’s give honor where honor is due. COOL KIDS AND JETS BITCH!!!!!!”
As soon as I caught wind of this petition, I felt obligated to do my part. I’ve already voted myself, and now it’s time to spread the word so as many people as possible can do the same. Mikey Rocks has been putting out quality music as one half of The Cool Kids for a minute now and after being signed to Curren$y’s Jet Life Recordings in October, it’s clear that he’s a rapidly rising freshman, well worth of the XXL Freshman 2012 cover.
So what do you have to do to be a part of it all and put Sir Michael Rocks on the cover?
It takes no more than ten seconds, and when Sir Michael Rocks is named an XXL Freshman of 2012, deservedly so, you can say that you helped make it happen.
As a final note, grab Sir Michael Rocks’ latest mixtape, Premier Politics below if you haven’t already. Definitely one of my favorite tapes of the fall. Be sure to like him on Facebook and follow him on Twitter as well – links are below.
