    Mutha fuckers blocking my shit

  • CHICAGO PaPii

    Did yall give him a XXL Rating,too????? YN can u answer that? Mr. Wilson did yall??

  • Purple Hulk

    YN, YOU ARE A FAGGOT SON OF A BITCH, YOU KNOW DAMN WELL NOONE WANTS TO SEE A FAG ON A DAMN MAGAZINE COVER, EXCEPT FOR FAGS, AND THEY DONT LISTEN TO HIP HOP IN THE FIRST PLACE, STOP GIVING YOUR FUCKBUDDYS THE DAMN COVER.

  • Boosio

    here’s a prediction – the issue will bomb. why? becuase rap fans don’t want something that doesn’t look like a normal xxl, the mainstream have no interest in xxl, and style kids won’t mess with it cos it looks so appalling in design terms.

  • Tw@t

    cover looks fire. gonna cop 4 sure…fuck rolling stone.

  • The Soviet

    Purple Hulk

    Why do you always attack the manhood of your enemies? It would seem you are pre occupied with the sexuality of strangers. Why? Isn’t your name itself a reference to a heaping mass of muscles? Even that but the true identity of the character that the Hulk is unknown to those around him, like “in the closet”. Not only that but you choose “purple” with no references to kool-aid or sizzurp. So the question becomes a question of your own manhood.

  • CHICAGO PaPii

    Hater Niggas Marry Hater Bitches and Have Hater Kids(Purple Hulk)….” As quoted by Kanye West 2005. Anyways Purple Hulk is a Gay Name, not gay as in Happy, I mean like Mr. Purple Hulk plays Elton John Records while wearing Incredible Hulk UnderRoos that are dyed Purple. This nigga is the ONLY nigga on here with a TransSexual Stripper’s Stage Name and he is tryin to call somebody Gay? Wow! I mean this is the SAME nigga who gets on here and talks like he really is Tough, when niggas know YOU be behind your KeyBoard at home with your Trousers down playin Hide the Sausage with your Hand to Kanye’s Picture. Fag. BITCH. Graduation Time. Bitches!!!!!!

  • Frank White

    wow finally a worthy cover…

  • al-mighty

    Kanye is real hip hop its about time this artform goes back to the artist and not cats like 50 trying to rape the culture for dollars hes worst than the white man

  • sincere

    I’m surprise that xxl didn’t put 50 on the cover, they always do even when 50 isn’t releasing an album.
