Nicki Minaj & Drake Cover XXL (May)

nicki-minaj-drake-xxl-cover-nahright

Although she let the cat out of the bag last week, in a surprising turn of events, Nicki Minaj and Drake grace the cover of the May issue of XXL. The only two artists that arguably deserved to appear on the extremely controversial last issue of XXL decided to settle for nothing less than their own cover… together. If people are still discussing (see: arguing) the last cover, their brains are gonna explode when they see this. The issue hits newsstands nationwide on April 20th.

    what’s wrong with new york hip-hop? um, how about new york dj’s are being payola’d to death by record companies pandering to retarded 16 yearolds by playing a bunch of shitty southern music? because flex, angie, clue, enuff–they don’t like this shit because they know it’s wack. they play it cuz they’re paid to, not cuz people NEED to hear BedRock 22 times a day. Assholes.

    For those that need proof Drake is foo foo,look no further than this homothug cover.

    Young Money = abused by they daddies

    still don’t understand the “since Hov was name dropping Charles Jourdan” sequence

  23. "A" Chick Le Fleur - I Got My Billions UP Says:

    Honestly thou I blame XXL for this shitty cover. Maybe it’s payback for them not accepting the Freshman Title.

    The last 5 covers Nicki did were hott.

  24. landlord Says:

    all doubt about Drake’s obvious faggotry were erased with that incredibly revealing photo of that Israeli dude going down on him at the restaurant…

    and the fact that Eskay and nation staunchly defended it as jokes, while refusing to post the photos when everyone else on the internet did, was mad telling …

    The things I would do to Nicki…

  27. Black Says:

    XXL even asking the whats wrong with NY question is kinda ironic, in a sad way. They will put anybody on their cover to make bread which is cool but dont act like u tryna be part of the solution when your part of the problem.

  28. landlord Says:

    there’s a whole train of thought, philosophy and wisdom about why all these rappers are purposely dressed in camoflauge… but some niggas aint ready… so ill chill

    and you know this information how??
    takes one chi chi man to spot his fellow breddins #noshots

  51. PHENOMENON Says:

    What does “hott” tend to equate to as far as talent??

    Granted, I think Drake is ok but I really don’t see what the big deal is at all. I guess he’s not my speed.

    Nikki?? Well, I haven’t heard enough of her material to really judge for myself.

    I guess their styles are geared more towards the mainstream which I don’t bother checking for at all.

    These magazines aren’t geared towards my demographic to begin with.

  52. landlord Says:

    and you know this information how??

    ———

    dude…

    there’s pictures of Wayne kissing Baby…

    there photos of Drake with a greasy haired Israeli/Italian lookin nigga’s face in his balls …

    there’s eyewitnesses and documentation that Jay lived with Larry’s Johnson…

    and Nicki Minaj is an open, self admitted lesbian…

    stay close …

    like the East Coast West Coast Beef Vibe Cover…

  55. Harlem World Says:

    from wikipedia lol

    Many readers have critisiced XXL for including OJ Da Juiceman as a freshmen, since many think his music is very poor and lyrics under average and that he does not deserve to be on a list with such recognition. The list has become known to be an amazing way to create buzz and is credited for giving many artists their fame.

    Funny how u guys hate on the one artist who arrived out of virtually nowhere and annihilated a whole fvcking year like Drake did.
    Who else cranked out hit after hit. Who ELSE had sold out crowds off a mixtape. Who else got co-signed by every major rap head in the game. Even Joe Buddens was on his jock.
    The fans forced this dude to put his FREE mixtape on itunes and make a video. It was never the plan. The fans chose the singles.
    I thought this was a hip-hop site? Show some goddam RESPECT!

    and what retail album do these so-called “hits” appear on…

    LOL @ niggas becoming stars off of exhibition games…

    only in HipHop …

    tell golden boy to make a record before he gets the star treatment …

  61. landlord Says:

    yes Camron…

    he gave niggas the courage to be flamboyant and wear pink…

    and flamboyant pink wearing niggas tend to be mostly queers …

    i agree and disagree. i just feel gay people are becoming brave as fuck and are deciding to show themselves (no homo). some people take the fashion shit way to far sometimes tho

    like what the fuck in fucking fuck’s name is that bullshit

  67. landlord Says:

    calling niggas ugly or clowning their looks is not gay…

    however, endlessly complimenting them and emtionally defending them against the aforementioned attacks IS gay…

  71. Harlem World Says:

    Gay people been in control of the fashion industry for a long time..but the issue aint about clothes..the issue is

    We gonna have an A list rapper come out of the closet,then an army of openly LGBT rappers will emerge.

    Hip Hop will become the new disco, strictly for clubs and full of X’d up, coked up fruits.

    Once it loses all credibility and respect as a subculture, the t.i’s and house nigras will start a new genre/minstrel show.

  72. PHENOMENON Says:

    Let me break down this cover for you. . .

    1] Drake is made to look like Barack Obama

    2] Nikki, your standard hussy back woman in search for a man with jewels and an insatiable urge to compromise her natural African curls for processed silky smooth white woman’s hair.

    3] Cheetah print to represent the promiscuity of the black woman. Notice that is is half way off.

    4] Asian calligraphy tattoo to represent Obama’s commitment to the liquidation of the US to China.

    5] Black backdrop is to signify that they are “backed” by the “dark” powers that be

    6] Camouflage to represent wars to come both physical and psychological.

    7] “Rap Royalty” is a reference to the undermining of the black presidency

    8] “Rebirth” is a reference to the Anti-Christ.

    9] Red bold & all caps “DOMINATION” to represent a urgency, awaken the hatred of all black administration, & mobilize opposition.

    1O] One exposed thumb on the bottom right side to represent the New World Order One World government and remaining fingers to represent all others being “in pocket”. On the opposite side of this is the mark all men are to receive either on the fore head or the hand. The one on the cover is adjacent to the hand.
