Two cover variations, including a west coast and an east coast cover. Cover is really red! Good article on the arrest of Mac Dre and members of the Crestside Country Club Gang. Advertisement for the Hieroglyphics – Thirdeye vision. Lol, you’re gonna love this cover: google Big Bear – Doin Thangs, it’s the same cover artists (Pen & Pixel) who did Snoops – Da Game and Silkk The Shocker’s Charge It 2 Da Game cover. Of course, then you can see one of my favorite covers, Devin The Dude on a toilet.
You really can’t hate on the cover with Bay Area Rap Legend Too Short. Cap 1 inside, never really blew up like I thought he would. Interesting letter to the editor from Jamal Diggs while in prison giving some insight to Mac Dre, Jamal Diggs would go on to be J-Diggs of Thizz Nation. Articles on M.O.P. and Richie Rich.
Very impressive issue. Cover of Fat Joe not bad. Two of my favorite sections in this issue have to be Dame Dash and Rugged Man together and Remembering ODB. I also liked the article on rap behind bars where they talk about albums and artists recording behind bars, Mac Dre, X-Raided, Tony Yayo, Lifers Group and such.
