    In a 9 month period, Eminem, Dre & 50 had a cover, Eminem had solo cover, 50 had solo cover, Banks and Buck had a cover (when neither had a cd released), and now Game gets the next cover. Sure they snuck Snoop in the cover, which is more of an insult than anything really. I think Snoop wack, but Game aint on his level or done shit compared to him.
    This is the most biased magazine in history. Benzino can get 5 mics in the source, and it still wont be as biased as XXL is to the aftermath clique. I can pretty much guarentee games below average album, much like Buck and Banks average albums will recieve an XL, they'd give him XXL but their saving that for 50 cent.

    Look out for Obie Trice on the next cover!

    Wack ass fucking publication.

    XXL used to have an edge. Now their dickriding is so blatantly obvious its sickening. Watch, within 4 months Tony Yayo will have cover.

    I do take that into consideration. And 50 and Eminem deserve a cover, maybe even the cover with them and Dre. But Banks, Buck and Game...C mon.
    They have done nothing for hiphop, some might say Game brought back west coast. But its just dickriding, and I wouldnt be surprised if they WERE on the payroll. I think I saw a 4 page ad for 50's album in this last issue.

    Theres selling and selling out. There is so many other deserving rappers.

    I love XXL because of the fact that they put the whole Shady/Aftermath/G-Unit camp on thier covers. Elliot Wilson comes straight out and says that he does it to sell magazines, atleast the man is honest.

    I recognized that to. I stopped buying rap magazines awhile ago but when Im in the grocery store I see them in there. XXL always seems to have someone from Shady/Aftermath or something like that. But thats the way things are going on as a whole. People are getting pretty blatant about making money now. Artist are coming straight out and saying they make certain music to make money, ya heard 50. I didn't think it was possible, but mainstream hip hop culture has gotten even more mainstream. Yuck
