Rock out. For their May issue, rap mag XXL has made Lil’ Wayne their coverboy, using a full action concert photo of the Young Money boss as their front page shot. There seem to be no fanny packs, fuzzy hats or boots with the fur present on stage, which is a very good thing.
The May issue includes a package of stories titled “Hip-Hop Live” that includes a feature on this year’s SXSW Festival, as well as features and profiles on rap collective Odd Future, chart-topper B.o.B and more, alongside the cover story on Lil’ Wayne.
Find it on stands starting April 24th.
