Complex Magazine Aug/Sept 2012 : GOOD Music & Rita Ora Cover

I always like the straight back covers like the death row Vibe Magazine cover. Nice lineup of artists from Kanye West, Pusha T, Kid Cudi, Common, Big Sean, John Legend, 2 Chainz, and Q-Tip. Really good roundtable style interview with them all also.

The Source Magazine #25 : Public Enemy Cover

One of my top 5 Source magazines covers of all time. Not only does it have Chuck D and Flavor Flav, but the photo is dope. Hip-Hop Quotable was Grand Puba Maxwell on Don’t Curse. Didn’t realize Puba had “Maxwell” on his name on his early works. Unsigned Hype is Common Sense AKA Common. Common was only 19 at the time.

The Source Magazine #250 : Big Sean Cover

Big Sean on the cover with the “special edition” border they always have.  Shout out to the late Heavy D inside and then after that, they have an article on weight of rappers such as Fat Joe, E-40, Big Pun and such. Includes the best of 2011, with one of my favorites, “Yonkers” by Tyler the Creator for Video of the year and Watch the Throne as album of the year. Unsigned Hype was Jon Connor and Hip Hop Quotable was Nas on “Outro”
