    How do they interview him he on multiple covers of that magazine yearly. At the same time though y’all are being hard on dude II considering his album was the highest selling first week by an artist not named Adele or being sold for .99 I think there are a few people checking for Weezy

  • the truth

    iight he made a milli first week big deal, but he had the biggest drop in album sales in history the second week cus every1 started relizing hes wacks, he made a song how to love and den how to hate , how creatiive is he ? and dere both wack, he aint nice, the weed isnt loud, weed doesnt speak, dis nigga is dum as FUCKKKK, king of hip hop ???? more like king of the skinny jean wearing homos skating boarding faggets wit 2nd grade punchlines, my son is wearing a panda mask in the HYFR video, thats a mockery to this hip hop game, hes not a king hes a mockery, and i kno he got more potential then that, he needs to bring back those dedication 3 days, my nigga was a monster, hes washed up now

    Wonder how much he paid them to put ‘The King of hip hop.’

    The king returned last night at Coachella.

  • hiptothe

    XXL is going out of business in 2013

  • this is such a lame and safe cover. Wonder why no one cares about hip-hop magazines anymore? No one is doing anything new. lame ass shit….

    shoutout to RESPECT. though — XXL, Source, pay attention and learn.

    Record sales don’t = quality.
    Quality = king.

  • grim genius

    wayne being called the king of hip hop is a matter of opinion, y’all niqqas ummmm i mean bitches are complaining as usual, imo there’s no such thing as a king of hip hop

  • sean

    i’m guess no one from xxl saw WTT live
    they most missed jay & kanye

  • Kemosabi

    @ewsdf I completely agree w you. I’m just saying that there are obviously alot of ppl that check for his music still.
