Influential battle rap website RapGrid has named Loso a member of its 2017 Freshman class and published a video of a new freestyle by the Tampa-based artist.

“‘Freshman 15’ is a term used to describe the weight a student gains during their first year of college,” RapGrid said. “In other words, it’s when you ‘get your weight up,’ a phrase we use in hip hop to represent elevation. RapGrid has teamed up with Xciled Media to make a list of 15 individuals we believe will make an impact on battle rap during 2017.”

Watch Loso’s freestyle below, and download his Rapzilla.com exclusive EP Valley of Vision that he released this year.
