Get Your Shine On

Awnaw! Hell naw! YN done up and done it now. As if the front cover wasn’t controversial enough, how dare this dude throw himself on the back cover of his magazine. Fuck it, why not? It’s a celebration, bitches. It’s been 10 years and I ruled eight of them, why shouldn’t I feel myself? No pause.

P.S. I’m not really wearing any Roc-a-wear. Don’t tell you-know-who. Who signed off on this shit anyway? Thank God, Hovi loves vacays. He must’ve been cruisin’ like Smokey Robinson when this ad slid through.

    Jesus Christ . . this dude thinks he’s Jesus Christ! You own a stupid magazine that hails a falling artform that has been minimized to the glorification of grillz . . you’re not Martin Luther King. When you die, nobody is going to remember you, other than the douchebags who pay $12/year for your gay ass publication . . which you can get online for free anyway. You know the reason you’re not wearing Rocawear? You can’t afford it because your mag is $12/month!

    SOMEBODY ANOINT THIS MAN AS DOUCHEBAG OF THE CENTURY!!!

    wow, and i thought bol looked funny, bol congrats, you are no longer the ugliest blogger on xxl.com

  • HIJOKKA

    YN, On the real, your mag saved us when the source went “pop”. The reason it fell was cause Benzino’s head got too big and he thought “he was rap music”. Well his Ego got the best of him. You need to stop promoting yourself so much and keep grinding that hustle. Keep XXL REAL,put your Ego in check, or you’ll be the next “benzino”.

  • Cuban Link

    wait what?Is this the back of the cover, or are you just saying your on the back cover, but this aint the photo.Or is Jiggaboo on the back cover?Fuck it who cares, Weezy and his baby daddy are still on the front.

    i’m really starting to think u guys are queer…
    EVRYTHING to you guys is gay. SMH.
    Benzino fell off because…

    1. he cant rap and tried to promote himself as a credible artist. (as if)

    2. the source and benzino accused eminem for being a racist and hurting the culture. (uhh, the guy was only the biggest artist on the planet)

    3. benzino “battled” eminem (big mistake)

    4. benzino’s biased views were spread throughout the mag, thus hurting its cred.

    5 XXL, checkmate.

    No shit. Take a vacation with Jay Z. Get some perspective. I used to think that “Hip Hop on a higher level” was not just a slogan. Now I see you’re just a shit pusher tryin to make a buck off honest folks. Better start shapin’ up or we gonna ship you out. Remember the Rap Pages? Most people don’t so learn how to publish real shit or you’ll become about as relevant as Nerd-Core.

    not for nothing but Yn does kinda look like Benzino .. u just need a iced out bracelet wit XXL on it .. U embracing joe camel

  • Bonzo

    I think YN likes men. Oiled up. With big muscles. And puckered-up lips. And closely-cropped hair. And tight leathers. And big feet; very big feet; very very big feet.

  • Sash Man

    So kids, let’s recap what we’ve learnt so far:

    Elliot Wilson is a mid-40 year old man who lives in Brooklyn;

    He’s a portly chap, who may have lost a little weight recently, but who’s started to accept the middle tire as part of the natural baggage;

    He’s less ‘YN’ as a funny looking Lord Of The Rings goblin type chap;

    He insists on speaking and writing like a five year old, and his grand plan for documenting hip-hop is to portray it as nothing more than some fugly kids who sell crack;

    He possibly likes looking at boys more than he likes to let on, and we’re not talking about on the sports field.

    Fantastico!
