10 Things Writers Should Stop Asking Rappers in Interviews

Who’s your Top 5 MCs all-time?: While the question may trigger an interesting response, just the sound of “Top 5 MCs” is jarring to the eyes at this point. Ask in a different way or stay away from this altogether. Please. Also Not Acceptable: Who are your influences?

  • jazzy

    Why not just list them on 1 or 2 pages instead of a page per sentence?

    • Dr Dre

      Because this way we can look at 10 pages of different advertising… smart these guys eh

  • AMBERHOE

    xxlmag stays with the exclusive! NICKI MINAJ SEX TAPE LEAKED!! www.loot6.com

  • trexilogy

    yeah. just list them in two pages. please

  • $yk

    soooo…

    is xxl going to address the Mysonne video? Or are y’all going to wait until Lil’ B addresses it and post that because y’all are riding with him? To be continued…

    they do the lists like that because the clicks are views…

      Mysonne was so on point with what he was saying. XXL is fucking crazy for endorsing the ignorant bullshit that is Lil B. Smh.

      • $yk

        word

        Mysonne even 8-Mile’d it and knows what the comments are going to say about him…

  • Rap Fan

    I would say that although influences/top 5 MCs is asked a lot, there is a good reason for this, as many people like to know who their favourite artists listen to.

  • WTF

    SO BASICALLY, YOUR SAYING THE WRITER SHOULD NOT EVEN INERTVIEW THE ARTIST AND JUST GIVE THE FANS SOME SHIT THAT ANYBODY COULD FROM SURFING THE INERTNET,RIGHT…………..!!!!

    • $yk

      it’s 2011…if it ain’t twitter talk or facebook updates cats can’t comprehend…they done forgot how to have a convo with a person next to them

      • alderman j

        you aint neva lied!!!

  • redder

    I agree with about 2 or 3 of the ones you shouldnt ask.. the other 8 are things that a casual fan want to know.. not everybody is up to date on eveything so.. most of those questions are legit..

  • Someonewithcommonsense

    almost everyone of those except a couple are questions that should be asked who gives a fuck if the writer knows or not we wanna fuckin know

  • REZ

  • Dick B.
