Snapshot: Dr. Dre x Kendrick Lamar cover XXL’s 15th Anniversary Issue

Kendrick Lamar‘s industry assault continues, as the twentysomething MC covers XXL’s 15th Anniversary Issue alongside his label boss and fellow Compton native Dr. Dre.

As I mentioned in the last Dre-related post I wrote, the Good Doctor has been very visible lately, indicating that he’s in a good working groove. This, of course, forces any Hip-Hop fan to wonder if this increased production will have any effect on the progress of the much-ballyhooed and almost mythical Detox album we’ve all been salivating for. Since I don’t have a direct line to Dre or know anyone who does, there’s no way I can answer that question.

But we can always hope. And at least we have K-Dot’s good kid, m.A.A.d city album — which Dre will probably have his hands all over — to look forward to. Expect that to drop October 2nd.

XXL’s 15th Anniversary Issue should be on newsstands soon.
