HHC Hip Hop Connection Magazine #47 : Ice Cube Cover

Perfect cover because it not only has Cube, but Da Lench Mob in the corner. Funny, Daryll Gates asks Eazy-E on the Howard Stern show “What if we went around making songs saying ‘Kill The Blacks’?” Also article on “Is Gangsta Rap Dead?” *note* Ice Cube is on the cover.

Roots Magazine #35 : No The Piper Cover

Very strong issue with articles on Meth & Red, Eminem, Ghostface, and DJ Quik. Review of Dead Prez’ Let’s Get Free.

HHC Hip Hop Connection Magazine #60 : Ice Cube Cover

Good cover of Ice Cube with his ‘fro. Not much inside but a advertisement for the Fugees album Blunted On Reality and a center two page poster of an early Dr. Dre and Snoop picture.

The Source Magazine #197 : Cam’ron Cover

Cam’ron “New Yourk’s #1 Contender Goes For the Crown”? Good article on Aaron McGruder, the creator of the Boondocks. Hip Hop Quotable is Ice Cube – Child Support. Unsigned Hype is Smiggz from Queens, NY.

Spice! Magazine #41 : Ice Cube Cover

Not many articles except for MC Eiht. The best part is the color photos. Includes KRS-One, Ice Cube with Dr. Dre, Kid Sensation (who looks like Too short), and Snoop Dogg.

HHC Hip Hop Connection Magazine #35 : MC Ren Cover

MC Ren on the cover of a magazine is pretty rare by himself. UK version of Ice Cube’s Death Certificate is 2 tracks less without Black Korea and No Vaseline. Right in the middle of Cube going solo and Dre starting to show signs of leaving, there is a lot of insight in this issue regarding N.W.A. members.

Dub Magazine #60 : Ice Cube Tap Out Cover

Nothing Hip-Hop about this issue except for the cover and a small article on Cube and the car expo he was at. Nice to see a tribute to Mask from Tapout.
