Lil’ Wang And BirdBrain Are Guilty Of Homo Side…

I love XXL magazine and how they produce their end product. Shit is slick as fuck and I’m not just talking about the paper. The art direction and the writing are all of the highest caliber being used for any mag this side of the New York Times. So when Elliot Wilson displayed next month’s proposed cover in a drop he did I think a little piece of Hip-Hop just died. Having Lil’ Wang and BirdBrain on the cover is no real big deal. For a tenth anniversary issue it seems a bit underwhelming, but whatever is clever if it sells books I suppose. The only exception should be approving cover art that is flagrantly homostyle.

Not that there is anything wrong with being a gay or a lesbian, but shouldn’t the tenth anniversary of Hip-Hop’s current bible have a more O.G. hardbody appeal and less zesty swagger? Fuck Kanye or Cam’Ron or Consequence, put the Wu Tang up on that bitch and make that shit a collector’s item. XXL has the talent and resources to blow that URB cover of the Wu back to it’s Crayola inspired birth. And where is the rest of Cash Money and Young Money? These two yokels aren’t saving Hip-Hop by themselves, although they are giving some tattoo parlor a nice piece of change. I can’t blame Elliot Wilson one way or the other since General Electric has wild long money and they run this rap shity anyhoo, but dayum! Can we a least get a wifey B on these cartoon gangsters?

This ain’t no hate on Lil’ Wang either. Its just that I don’t even think he rates high enough for this important landmark cover. Fuck it, exhume B.I.G.’s body, bring Tupac back from Guatemala, give Snoop Dogg a blunt, hell, put a gotdamn throwback jersey on Jay-Z. Show me someone who changed the way we listen to rap music, give me someone that changed the fucking game. What game? Any game! Put Barry Bonds on the cover. Anybody but Lil’ Wang. Alright, I’m done complaining. Its only a cover anyhoo. In a month there will be someone else to grace the cover and XXL will continue to move forward full speed ahead.

How much you want to bet that this issue does wild numbers in the prison industrial complex?

  • Reddillionaire

    yokels????LMAO!!!!

    • E-Z boyzzz

      Wow… If you don’t thing Wayne deserves to be on this cover, you yourself should reconsider if you really understand what the “GAME” is all about. And if you haven’t realized Wayne has earned the respect of some of the greatest rappers of all time! The 10 anniversary cover is abviously the future of hip hop, what hip hop is becoming and the way it’s changing the “game” today.

  • that guy

    first off, the cover is hot…theres nothin gay about it IMO. these interent geeks are just that, geeks. if i was at the beach and i took a pic with my homey, would that be gay? no. watch this issue do tis numbers too. i’m copping two.

    Damn, I like Wayne’s music, but I gotta agree bro, Wayne started rapping good recently, a legends collector’s edition cover would have been better.

  • skizzle

    Lil Wayne can rap but should of put Jay-Z on the cover IMO

  • http://www.plasticsquirtguns.blogspot.com thoreauly77

    a cover of all the xxlmag.com bloggers! no wait, gotta bring tara back for that! it would be interesting to run a piece in teh print mag about the blogs here though. in this age, the internet version is as integral a part as the print; welcome to the future.

    and i agree with you billy. whats with teh rhinestone “XXL”?!?!?!?!?

  • derfla the hus’la

    should of had Jay-z or maybe a Jay,T.I.,Kanye,Lil Wayne,Jeezy,Game cover since the units they move.

  • dolo

    Put Remy mugshot on the cover !! lol

  • nowayne

    i gotta question SILLY BILLY… why is the only thing u ever say about “lil wang” is that he’s gay ur actin like a kid who hates on a fine girl just because she dont like him are you mad at wayne for sumthin? ha look i write on ur posts all the time and u never answer questions that i write give me like 2 reasons why wayne is such a horrible rapper and oh can we get a count on how many times billy sunday was on the cover and how many rap songs he made oh and how many platinum records he had oh and if he’s ever had as much attention as wayne oh and if he has any money at all AND if he’s gay i’m beginning to think this is all jealousy OBVIOUSLY NOTICE MR.THURSDAYWILLY only writes posts about wayne hmmmm quotin boosie “if they hatin, your doin sumthin rite”

  • bigbankhank

    nigga is you serious. XXL is a business you a hole. They trying to make a profit, keep there money coming and giving the public what it wants the most. Not to many people want to see old ass WU tang or Jay z on the damn cover. Lil wayne may not be the best rapper alive but dude is on top of the market right now. Nobody else in the history of rap can kiss another man and still be considered on top of rap. If Jigga kissed kanye then both of they careers would be threw. IF 50 cent kiss yayo then they career would be the past. This nigga kissed anotha nigga on the lips and still has a name on the top spot you have be to a cold as nigga to pull that off. real talk.

  • Mpho

    @LBDII,

    Negro Please, wtf would u want Old “Joe Camal” Head on the cover for??, its the new generation motherfucka, them old niggas had their time to shine.. it’s time to rebuild and let the youngn’s get their mayne.. Birdman ain’t even a good rapper and he old as hell so i dunno y he on there.. I kinda agree witcha tht they should have Weezy, Jeezy, Game, Santana, Cassidy on tht shit.. coz tht right there u motherfuckers is the top niggas in this rap shit.under 30… Ya dig.

  • Makaveli-the-God

    xxl comin out the closet puttin them homo thugs on the cover for a 10th anniversery how about puttin some rappers on the cover who deserve some resect like jay ,nas or any of the other few legends still alive and brathing u should honour the oldschool not the homo birdmen who r destroying rap music how can a grown man kiss another grown man on the lips and they r not relatives either be considered as the so called best like fuc mayn he is trash JAY Z the best 11 years deep a few 100 mill on his way to a billi wtf u hating on hes a living legend

  • to thick for you

    i think lil wayne is sexy as fu** . and hell no he is not gay so yall need to stop hattin. dont be mad cause he got bread. to all the broke ass niggas out here.

  • dolo

    only thing he’s changed is the perception of how cats get so overrated without dropping a classic lp

  • anonymous

    This is the gayest fucking cover XXL has EVER put out. There is no way in hell I’m embarrasing myself by purchasing that shit. I’d be embarrassed with anyone seeing me walking around with it. The best thing XXL got going right now are the blogs. You put two subpar rappers on the cover of your 10th anniversary issue?!?! Neither has released a classic album?! Plus they got there shirts off looking hella homo!

    The smart move would have been a cover of who’s hot now & who’s up & coming from every area North, South, East, & West. Well at least I hope they paid XXL well for that cover spot. Like Redman once said….

    “How you dope when you paid for your (XXL) spot!”

  • im that nigga

    COME ON MAN WAYNE AINT CHANGIN SHIT,THE ONLY THING HE CHANGIN BOUT HIP HOP IS HE’S TURNIN HIP HOP GAY,HE AINT RUNNIN SHIT.

  • Boner Jams 03

    u are right billy..it is really underwhelming..but i kinda see where elliot is goin…lets not forget…baby was on the 5th anniversary cover…kinda like past(baby) aand future(weezy) i guess…but i would have taken the 10 artists of the last 10 years that “owned” their respective year..here would be my rundown…
    97-the wu
    98-outkast
    99-eminem
    00-dr. dre
    01-jay-z
    02-nas
    03-50
    04-kanye
    05-game
    06-t.i
    07- weezy..it’s gonna be his year…hate it or love it

    now i know there are some egos that wouldn’t get along at this shoot..like 50 and game and nas, or weezy and hov..but photoshop is a muthafucka…aint xxl photoshop the snoop /game cover??
    but anyway, that’s how i would have done it…

  • John Brown

    I knew that Billy would had a field day with this cover. Yall niggas act like this is the first cover someone disagree on. There have been lots of covers that a lot of peeps dont like. I would had prefer if Juelz & Wayne were on the cover though. I mean they are coming out with a cd together. WTF, is Birdman doing on the cover? I bet if YN wasnt dickriding the south, he would had put Pappose, Saigon, J.O or maybe Wu on the cover. Either way next month is a new month..

  • nur-allah

    just a poor choice. XXL always does weak fucking cover storys. I swear your 1/10th of the problem with people liking this wack ass shit

  • Space Cowboy

    Wayne did change the way hip hop is done today. (see Hotboys) if it wasn’t for Cash Money, we wouldnt have 20+ inch Rims. we wouldn’t have hip hop words in the dictionary (see Bling Bling). the truth is that Cash Money records changed the game back in 98, and the game hasn’t been the same since.

    I understand you guys hate wayne and all, but before you do another hate blog on wayne, why dont you do some research on dude, instead of talking out the side of your neck.

  • Rizzo

    How can you say weezy is running the rap game when that father like son shit aiont sell shit? They should have put all of the younger generation of rappers on the cover Saigon, pap,juice, hot rod?? Joc, ya know? from each region, to show unity….i know it wouldve been hard to do, but it has been 10 years and the new dudes deserve some shine.

  • Mr Whats Beef

    i would have put the strongest members of each todays rap group on the cover like.

    Lloyd Banks with
    Juelz Santana
    Lupe fiasco
    Cassidy

  • osc-ceo

    first

  • triplesixninja

    put wu tang on the cover. put three six on the cover. put insane clown posse on the cover. put boosie and webbie on the cover. these are the hardest kniccas in the game. i aint playing. im serious

    give me like 2 reasons why wayne is such a horrible rapper
    ——————–
    1.Birdman put them niggas in a trash can
    Leave em outside of your door I’m your trash man
    I’m steady lightin another hash and ridin in my jag
    You will need a gas mask man
    You snakes, stop hidin in the grass
    Sooner or later I’ll cut it knock the blades in yo ass
    You homo niggas getting Aids in the ass
    While the homie here tryna get paid in advance

    2. It’s me…the rapper eater…feed me feed me feed me! No homo.
    One time for me, one time for the DJ
    He be Khaled, I be Lil’ Weezy
    Baby if you ask me if you’re nasty
    Creative gifted bastard
    Spit sporadic
    I’m so diplomatic democratic
    Touch it, Bring it, Push it systematic
    Damn right I kissed my daddy

    There two reasons his lyrics are like a 4 year old with Down Syndrome

  • Chad Biggz

    Like it or not Wayne is the hottest (not best) rapper out. For some reason Lil Wayne is gettin bigger and bigger and has a large number of internet stans. It seems like this shit happen over night. I use to be not able to find anythin on Lil Wayne. Not I can’t seem to go to a hiphop site without seeing a blog, a new song, pic, somethin of Lil Wayne. I am a fan of Lil Wayne but damn I wish the nigga take a vacation.

  • brebre

    JAY WOULD BE MORE FITTED CHOICE FOR THE COVER BUT THEN IT’S THE SAME OLD STORY AGAIN. ANOTHER BORING HIP-HOP HISTORY LESSON THAT EVEN WHITE KIDS KNOW BETTER. I THINK XXL DECIDED TO GO FOR “TODAY”. AND LIL WAYNE IS TODAY, RIGHT NOW.

    Everybody is missing the point — I don’t care if the cover is “GAY” or not!!(well maybe a little) but the point is that it is the 10th Anny edition and this is who they pick for the cover?? I know alot of you southern cats are on weezy’s jock but let’s be real — the only well done album by this cat is the Carter and that’s it. Baby is where he’s at because his BROTHER is a true hustler and that’s it. YN needs to change his name to “Lil’ Benzino”. This kinda shit is why we stopped coppn’ the SOURCE and that helped XXL blow up.I hate to see XXL do the same to it’s fan base.For the rest of ya cats keep loving WEEZY F. BABY’S CRACK BABY cause you got the right to but us REAL Hip-Hop heads are tired of all this POP-RAP that your boy WEEZY seems to love to do these days.

  • smog

    ok first off “around-and-around” is a fucking dumbass if you don’t think those verses are good you need to stop listening to rap music, right now, cuase its obvious you dont even like rap music, second this cover is about having wayne on it, which means birdman is on it, cuase wayne reps birdman cuase dude is a true og, now no matter if you think wayne being a top contender for best mc ever, the fact that dude reps birdman to death is hip hop, more then any little fucking rap song can ever be, but of course billy is right, wu should have been on the cover

  • Ryan

    I saw a video of Benzino tossing some broads salad in a bathtub last night. It was weird…

    This cover is doing exactly what YN wants it to do: stirring up controversy and making people pay attention. Weezy and Baby are definitley not the best rappers by any means (Weezy has a few punchlines here and there, Baby is just spewing bullshit 24-7, both are entertaining though), but I bet this combined with the fact that it’s the 10th anniversary edition will boost sales. Besides, it doesn’t matter who’s on the cover, especially if what’s on the pages is good.

    Yo dis nigga billy sunday is so right about lil wayne nd baby.they didn’t deserve tha 10th anniversary cover. They not real enough for that honor. I think 50 or Wu-tang shoulda got it! Shit maybe even papoose. But those niggas is homo as hell and that aint accepted in my hood. That aint ‘mafia’ neither Birdman cuz nobody mafia has kissed a dude on da lips and survived to tell the tale. So whether wayne is nice or not he aint dserve da cover!

    They could’ve put Wu-Tang or Jay-Z on the cover for the 10th anniversary but love him or hate him Weezy’s the most relevant artist in the game right now. I’m from Philly obviously but I hear people listening to his shit more than any artist from here. It’s not about being nostalgic and remembering the good ol’ days cause if that was the case we’d still be reading the Source. Remember its still business and Wayne will get those magazines off the rack. Its that simple.

    The shit is mad controversial though, I think that’s the point.

    “put the Wu Tang up on that bitch”
    Billy, you could’nt be more correct. If Cheezy F. Baby and Birdman are going to grace any magazine cover, it should be Grizzly Weekly.

    My imaginary 10th anniversary cover would have a collage on it of the top things in hip-hop over the past 10 years: Nas Vs. Jay-Z, ODB and Dilla’s Deaths, The Rise of Kanye, Eminem, I could go on.

  • Cuban Link

    ^thats what I said a collage, only with all the old covers, thatd be hot

    this is how I felt ot Billy, Weezy has no relevance to 10 years of XXL.I dont get why they wouldve put them 2 on, it just doesnt make sense.

    And yes @ ‘that guy’ this cover is gay.Not because they have no shirt, but because they are touching eachother in odd ways, and have tats on their bodies of the other.Also, because they are already suspect, it just makes it that much worse.If Snoop and say Dr Dre did that, it wouldnt be as gay, because noone has ever given a thought of them being gay.Although in either case it would still seem at least a little homo

    As much as I hate those two bitches I agree that XXL Mag is a company that is trying to make money. For all we know, all there executives could hate lil wayne but if he is whats hot put him on the cover. But what they dont understand is that he is not going to stand the test of time. He is a trend that is going to fade over time. Tell me what has he done to change the way we listen to music? NOT A DAMN THING!!!
    Half of his fans are little kids who dont even know what he’s first album was. AM I WRONG? I love hip hop with a passion and what i hear is just complete garbage. I dont care if Jay-Z is still making music when he’s 45 IM STILL GOING TO BUY THE ALBUM. I know he has something to say just like Nas and a lot other rappers.

    Can you even put Lil Wayne in the same class as B.I.G., Tupac, KRS-One, Jay-Z, Nas or Eminem?

    I hate when people say that someone “CHANGED THE GAME”, ok maybe that person did have an affect, but was it for the better or was it for the worse? So maybe LIl Wayne is changing the game, but personally i think he’s only making things worse.

    IMO, an album can be considered a classic when you can listen to the entire CD repeatedly without skipping over a track and agree that every song is a banger. If you can do that, then you can consider the album a classics. For assistance, please reference back to Enter the Wu…, Illmatic, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, Reasonable Doubt, Ready to Die, The Chronic, etc. Is it possible to do that with the Tha Carter series? I seriously doubt it. Don’t get me wrong, the boy is doing his thing and collecting those chips, but to compare his lyrics to whips, his shit would be a Chrysler 300 on 22′s because he’s definitely not at the Bentley Arnage level.

    How much you want to bet that this issue does wild numbers in the prison industrial complex?

    They should have done a collage with everybody face on it. Or a picture of 1520 sedgwick ave would have been real for a tenth anniversary. Jay live with a man, roboho ain’t never in the crib. Weezy kissin a man is almost the same shit. Mad dudes is suspect, fans just don’t want to get they feelings hurt. They should have put eminem because people that look like him run fuckin hip hop. Elvis=Eminem, so keep supporting fellas. Yo Jay, I need more people, I don’t believe you. Now that I think about how many suspect dudes is out there, a picture of 1520 sedgwick ave was the best option.

    This cover is doing exactly what YN wants it to do: stirring up controversy and making people pay attention.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^
