Vote For The Best XXL Cover of 2001 [DAY 2]

It’s day two of XXL’s look back on our decade of dominance as we reflect on all the covers we’ve done over the past 10 years. Throughout the years, various staffers have chimed in on which was the best XXL cover and for the first time we’re bringing you, the reader, into the discussion with a special online ballot.

Over the course of the next two weeks (Jan. 4 to Jan. 15), you’ll have the chance to vote for the Best XXL Cover from the past decade. Each day we’ll put up all the covers from a different year (2000 to 2009) until we’ve tallied the votes and have the top 10 fan favorites by year.

After that, we’ll kick off a second round of voting (Jan. 18 – Jan. 21) to find out which one will be crowned the Best XXL Cover of the Millennium. You can only vote for one cover a day, but feel free to come back each day to vote again. The Best XXL Cover of the Millennium will be announced on Friday, January 22.

Yesterday, we unveiled all of our covers from the year 2000, but today is all about 2001.

Without further ado, the 2001 XXL cover nominees are…

    Gotta go for the Trina cover. Admit it, sex sells (unless you’re Susan Boyle).

    However, the Shyne ISSUE (that’s inside of the cover) was something the Hip-Hop Community was waiting for. Although I no longer have that issue, I recall Shyne being mad pissed at the way things went at his trial.

    Well, I’m off to work. Touch back in the evening.

    The shyne cover no doubt if i remember correctly shyne only spoke to xxl during the trial the fans wanted 2 know whats up. puff fucked him over with the different lawyers i hope the kid tells all on his upcoming album and releases it on the same day as the last train 2 paris and ethers him karma is a wonderful thing

  • jonny bizness

REAL TALK!!!!!

  • PAC ALLDAY

  • sean_izzle

    i had to go with Ludacris on this one! but his cover on the nov 2008 issue was better than this one from 2001

    2001 was a damn great year for me the year i started listening to Hip Hop

  • sisa

    Let’s not front. Everyone of y’all were on Nelly’s dick back in the day (try 10 million). He brought that different style back then, n we all bit it. Let people not even lie and say they didnt buy tht Nelly cover. Coz I know I did.

  • latino heat

    Shyne and Juvenile had great story’s inside the magazine. but let’s keep it real people, you would rather look at Trina’s cover (even if it isn’t very revealing) then a picture of ANY dude.

    if you take the Trina cover out and i’m voting strictly on artistic value though, i always thought the Jay / Beans cover was a classic.

  • latino heat

    and 10 points to anyone that can remember the name of the guys that used the Jay / Beans cover as the cover of their mixtape around that time. (they used the cover and photo shoped their own faces on the bodies of Jay / Beans)

  • The G.O.A.T.

    Wooooow i don’t know which is choice DMX, Ja Rule or 2Pac…Bullet was cool movie so i vote 4 2Pac
