Don Toliver was one of the many artists fans were shocked did not make it to the XXL Freshman cover 2020 -- but according to XXL, it was because he did not want to participate in the required activities.
"We love Travis [Scott], we love the Cactus Jack team, but Don Toliver came up and he said he didn't want to take part in any of the concerts or anything," XXL's Vanessa Satten told The Breakfast Club. "He would just stand there for the cover. He didn't want to do freestyles, he didn't want to do cyphers -- just said I'm not gonna do anything. I'm just going to stand there for the cover."
She added, "The meeting was interesting because he said straight up, 'I'm just not doing it'."
This year's freshman cover has received quite a lot of negative feedback and not nearly as much attention as it has over recent years.
