To be featured on the cover of XXL music magazine’s Top 10 Freshman issue often launches young rappers to stardom, and West Philly’s Chill Moody is asking for your vote.

Every year, XXL releases its annual top ten favorite picks of rising stars to watch for and Moody is among more than 100 fellow hip-hop artists nationwide vying for the top spot on the cover.

“It’s an honor to be nominated and have a serious chance at making the XXL Freshmen cover this year,” said Moody.

“Landing on this cover would really springboard my career, and bring a lot of attention to some of the moves I’ll be making this year,” said Moody, who’s twice played at The Roots Picnic in town and has recently been endorsed by Chevrolet and Jameson. He also recently did a TED Talk.

“The competition is tough, as expected, and a lot of people nominated have big records out and some big co-signs. Even still, I am very confident in my chances…

“I really just want the chance to rep Philly the way I always have, on bigger stages. Landing on this cover will provide me the opportunity to do just that.”
