Hits Magazine #247 : N.W.A. Cover

Only thing that could have made this issue any better would have been to have Ice Cube on it.  As with most industry magazines, not much in the way of articles, but there is a Q&A with Ice-T and some pictures of 3rd Bass.

HITS MAGAZINE 1993 : Snoop Dogg

So here is one of my favorite covers of all time. You will have to pry my dead hands from this copy. So many cool things going on with this issue. First the blue chucks, blue jeans, blue pendleton, blue beanie, and blue background. Second, this is from 1993 so it was right around the time the classic Doggystyle album was coming out. The cover is also probably one of the photos from a particular photo shoot, as I have seen two other covers with the same lighting with Snoop. It is also a hard copy to find anywhere which makes it even more collectible to me. This copy is also special to me because it was one of a few Death Row covers that I have that came from Suge Knights offices. I paid a pretty penny to purchase these which were won at the Fullerton, CA. Death Row auction a few years back.

Hits Magazine #439 4/24/1995 : 2Pac Cover

Fuck Lenny Beer editor in chief of Hits magazine for putting Pac on the cover then writing in the first page: ON THE COVER Interscope rapper 2pac is sentenced to a week on this Hits cover to promote his chart-topping “Me Against The World” album when what he really wanted was a saw inside a cake.
