This issue had three covers, including a nicer Canibus cover and a worst cover with R. Kelly on it. They got a section where they went to Roger Pratt on NYC’s Houston St. to predict stuff in hip hop, he came back with Latrell will kill his coach! lol. XXL’s Eye Candy is Jennifer Lopez.
Crazy to remember all the other covers with Dr in the background, such as the Deep Cover Source cover with Snoop, 50 Cent & Eminem XXL cover. Could it be Timbo’s are back in style? NY’s Joey Bada$$ is being deemed the next Nas or Big L. I’ll edit this page next year to see how that turns out. Lot’s of list and issue shows all back issues of XXL. To top off the issue the all-time great Eye Candy is shown, Rose Acosta.
