Xplosive Magazine #12 : Lil Jon & The Eastside Boyz Cover

Cover is more of a collage, does have Mac Dre and The Jacka on it. Interesting ad for 50 Cents Valentine’s Day Massacre album I had never seen. Ciara looks hot inside. Jadakiss and The Jacka articles inside. An interview that was done 5 weeks before the death of Mac Dre also inside.

Xplosive Magazine #9 : Baby & Manny Fresh Cover

City 2 City section goes to Kansas City and features Tech N9Ne and Rich The Factor. Large City 2 City feature on S.F. with a large variety of bay artists including Andre Nickatina, JT The Bigga Figga, and Guce. I have to call out C-4 and Ceza for their CD reviews, they review 40 albums without one being criticized including albums 702-Star, and Moonshine Bandits – Soggy Crackerz.

Xplosive Magazine #10 : Outkast Cover

Cover is like a collage, so it doesn’t put any emotions in my head. Love the article and advertisements for Ganxsta Nip’s album. Articles on Yukmouth, DMX, Beyonce, and my man Deebo.
