XXL Magazine #106 Young Jeezy Cover
Young Jeezy on the cover of XXL for the first time with the Puffy toothpick in his mouth. Akon’s Konvict clothing is making a big push in this issue, kind of ugly mixing skater checkers with Ed Hardy looking prints. Interesting list of words being censored on the radio: Lil Wayne Lolipop, Juicy, Lumps, Top, Bottom. Plies Bust It Baby Panties, Wet-Wet and G-Unit’s I Like the Way She Do It, Back into it, drop it low, and ass drop. Did XXL just waste a page on Paul Walls marriage to Crystal? Interesting article on the Hipster movement, if you are interested in the word Hipster as defined in Norman Mailers 1950’s essay “The White Negro” it’s a cool read, this article, not so much. XXL seems to be going through the motions with this issue.
