Lil Wayne is one of the most profitable touring artists in hip-hop, and this summer he, 2 Chainz and T.I. are hitting the road for the 2013 America’s Most Wanted Music Festival. But before the tour kicks off in Birmingham, AL, on July 9, the trio linked with XXL for a special cover package, which includes interviews and a solo cover of each artist and one featuring all three superstar MCs. Inside, Wayne discusses the release of his most recent album, I Am Not A Human Being II, his love of skateboarding and his recent health issues. 2 Chainz talks the success of his solo debut and prepping his next effort, and T.I., who’s shopping for a deal for his Grand Hustle conglomerate, chops it up about his options.
Also in the new issue, Kevin Liles shows off his empire, Mac Miller avoids the sophomore jinx, Pusha T finally puts out a solo album (maybe), Danny Brown interviews comedian Hannibal Buress, Chance The Rapper shows and proves, and there are some steamy hot photos from Angelica Charrupi, the sexy eye candy from Drake’s “Started From The Bottom” video. Plus there’s much more.
The new issue of XXL is on stands nationally on June 18.
