Take A Picture

This just in rap fans: 50 Cent and Kanye West have decided to join forces and pose together for a Rolling Stone cover. When the white man comes knocking, niggas sure go jumping through hoops to please ‘em. You’d never see this happen for a Black magazine. Truth be told, I’m mostly salty cause I have the Internet’s favorite on my next cover and this may outshine me a bit. You think?

YN lose his swagger? His gusto? Hey, it’s a rare loss for the kid but I’m gonna take it on the chin. Only ‘cause Joe Levy is my dude. So a tip of the fitted and can I get a fuck you to all you hip-hop fucks who prioritize the crackers in the mainstream above us. Y’all make me sick to my stomach.

P.S. Will prolly leak my Kanye cover tmw late, early Mon, or maybe Sunday afternoon while I’m taking a shit. Gabe T can eat a big fat dick!

    THAT JUST MEAN U GOTTA SHIP MORE OF THEM UNITS TO GET SOME SHIT LIKE THAT 4 XXL

  • Calibud

    I feel you on that but I can do without all the racial shit. You sound like a fuckin Nazi the way you throw around slurs so effortlessly.
    Also I disagree with you thinking that rappers prioritize white publications over our own. Them niggas know where home is at, but the fact remains that Rolling Stone reaches a whole other demagraphic, not just to different races but to that older crowd that only fucks wit certain hip hop cats if any. Any rapper with the oppertunity to take advantage of that demographic should take it. Get off your own shit YN, when that hate starts gettin in your veins it gets to your brain and distorts your thoughts which makes niggas spew out crazy opinions. Im startin to smell a bit of that of 50 these days

  • LOL

    MAN ALL U HIRE IS “HIPHOP IS A CULTURE” CRACKERS AND UNCLE TOM ASS NIGGAS ANWAYS. DONT FRONT LIKE XXL IS A BLACK MAGAZINE

  • Anonymouz

    If you were more forward thinking with your covers then Rolling Stone would be taking cues from you. You don’t win by playing it safe using the same artists on the cover all the time. You should know better than anyone else that you didn’t win by playing safe in your early editorials going at the source. You need to take that same approach with your future covers. The Source put Common on their recent cover & damn near sold out at the magazine stand I usually cop magz from. You have to get back to setting the the trends YN.

    I like Rolling Stone. I also like XXL. Pause.

    XXL, in my humble opinion, oh my brothers and sisters, needs to get some revolutionary ish popping, without subjecting itself to losing $$$.

    I can feel YN on being mad about the RS cover, but he didn’t say if he had the idea earlier. If RS had it, he can’t be upset. But if he did and they just wanted more distribution in terms of publicity, then he has every right to be crunchy.

    By the way, I’m from Alabama, and I’m the fucking king. Wipe me the eff down.

    Kanye had better outsell “Fif”. If not, these are really the last days. How many homoes are really believing that Curtis will have a better quality LP than ‘Ye?

    Waste your fucking money if you wish. I’m buying Kanye and burning .50 cent. If you don’t do the same, you’re a stupid, moronic, bitch-ass, whorific, pussified swamp monkey. No racist, no homo and multiple pause.

  • Kev

    Hey YN it wasn’t nothing when you had 50 and G-unit on the cover for like every other issue. I didn’t hear any other publications complain about that. And please you dont own and percentage of XXL, Let me see is it a “White Man” that owns it lol. See if you would have played the game even and not put G-unit and 50 on every other issue and try to put other rappers and or issues in the hip-hop community on your cover you wouldn’t be salty lol. You sound like a side chick right now lol.

  • so heres another hit barry bonds

    isnt it ironic that when kanye finally gets his 1st xxxl cover (solo cover that is) after 2 releases, he does a cover for rolling stone with 50…..probably the best hip hop/ rock cover since zack and rza…..I see this as karma for all those 50 cent interscope covers….I your (xxl) interview good.

  • truthbetold

    what’s funny is you all know nothng about running a magazine. you kidz make me laugh with your dumb little notions. you have nothing, run nothing, and so have pride in nothing. you act like you “own” something, or are “revolutionary,” or have ever run anything, put your soul into something. ha ha. how I giggle at you kidz, who never had to make a real decision outside your households (if that), never had to do anything in public, for public approval/disapproval but cross the damn street. ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. you think Jimmy “owns” part of Harris or XXL. Your dumb little conspiracies … you probably believe in UFOs, too. hahhahahhahhaahahhahaha. run something, fools, before you check in with your lameass-ness. run something other than your fingers across your grimy, overused keyboards.

  • http://Bandito.com Bandito

    Harris is white owned so who cares? if XXL got the cover, its still “crackas” and a YN aka mulatto boy.

    You got owned.

    50 Cent said “f**k you and your rap rag.”
    Real talk, i heard Kanye wa going to be on the cover of the source…he’s on complex now.

    Dont nothin hate but a mafuckin hater/ mad cuz u dont see a fraction of rolling stone paper. XXL dope evry other issue but yall need 2 cut the 50 cent dick riding “Great Expectations” Get the fuck outta here! YN lemme know the last hot verse u heard 50 spit 4 real 4 real. None of that wwe fake shit neither…Guns and Grams FUCK U NIGGA

  • ThAaNoNyMoUs

    Did Jet or Ebony come knocking on their door? Everytime a black man does business with a white company, does that make them a sellout? Is is a bad thing that a big magazine like Rolling Stone wants Kanye and 50 to do a cover for them? You never explained why anybody was “jumping through hoops to please ‘em” because it’s called business and they aren’t stepping on any black people by doing it so wtf is your problem?

  • http://naw Chin-chilla

    hahha, wow, you just got sonned on your own website. YN lost.

  • LOL @ Ignorant so-called “writers”

    “When the white man comes knocking, niggas sure go jumping through hoops to please ‘em.” After typing that, I would’ve thought that they sold their souls for some fat contract but doing a cover for a popular magazine? Maybe they should be covers for Jet right? Or even better, maybe we should segregate ourselves from white people and turn back the clock too, right?

  • CINCINNATI BITCHES

    poor yn. why don’t you do a shock issue and on the cover you can have ToiletBol standing next to Kanye…and you can be underneath them with a flower in your mouth, and ToiletBol can hold up a sign that reads: KanGhey is nullus.

    I’m sure that’ll entice your readers.
    Or better yet..why don’t you just retire.

  • http://www.twerkolator.com twerkolator

    my girl (who happens to be a snow bunny) says that it’s probably not a black/white thing, but probably because Rolling Stone is a bigger magazine and has a much larger readership than XXL.

    Also, maybe Rolling Stone hatched the brilliant idea before anyone else. Elliot, did you ask them to appear on the cover together?

  • Incilin

    “When the white man comes knocking, niggas sure go jumping through hoops to please ‘em. You’d never see this happen for a Black magazine.”

    ^^ How true indeed. Dam YN, that cover belongs to you.

  • Incilin

    Wait, wait, wait. I was jus readin this same thing on NahRight and they like Clyde Smith is gonna be pissed when he hears this. Does that mean you giving Ghost the cover? You said you got the internets fave, and Ghost is a internet fave by all means.

    ^^
    Well maybe you should be doing the staffing, I’m sure you can run a magazine. Let’s see, you can alienate all the white people, which is a pretty large demographic. You can alienate anyone (no matter what their race) who likes anything other than hip hop or “black music”, which is also another large demographic. I’m sure there’s more, but you get the picture. You’d probably sell an issue to your mom, and issue to dark and two to kritiq or something.

    Also, think about it. im sure ‘those’ people (RS readers) dont even realize that 50 and kanye are even coming out on the same day.

    and besides… dont yall come out with dual cover issues anyway?
    make a kanye cover then make a 50 cover if its THAT serious. distribute them shits at the same time. blam.

  • Demi

    50 was already on XXL’s cover. It was bad planning on your part, YN, to put him on the cover at that time(what, interscope didn’t give you the heads up??). G’head and blame the “crackers.” That’s always easier than blaming yourself.

  • Demi

    P.S. Elliot Wilson’s salary is about $300,000.00 a year. And the White Man is footing that bill (Harris Publications is owned by a “cracker”).

    What’s going on with all of this racist bullshit just because Fiddy and ‘Ye picked Rolling Stone over XXL (you didn’t say this, but it’s obvious). I mean, seriously, I love XXL and I love Rolling Stone, but there is no comparison in the two. XXL is a great magazine but Rolling Stone is an epic magazine. For fuck sakes, it had the fucking Beatles on the cover; movies made about it and are probably the most respected magazine, ever. That is what you call the global music magazine, has nothing to do with “Uncle Toms” or “Crackers” or any of this racist bullshit; you shouldn’t get salty because they chose the right promotion ticket, you should be happy for your “brothers”. If anyone is fake, it’s you.

  • SOUTHERNBREED

    damn phoenixxxx,what the fuck that have to do with the story?????
    kanye west is midwest and 50 is east!
    why ya’ll hating the south?
    you got hate coming from your pores!
    if new york rappers would stop beefing with each other and start working together for a change,
    then they can get to the money like the south.
    west coast finally figured it out.
    we might beef with each other but,we still get the money together.
    look at “stomp”,t.i. and luda went at each other and at the end of the day,they both got paid!
    and kanye and 50 smart,they know that being on stage together made everybody talk and then they doing the rolling stones cover together!
    that’s more expose for the both of them!

  • L Marie Neal

    Elliot by chance did you present the idea and concept to Ye and Fiddy? I’m not really following you on the whole “when the white man comes knockin’”….As you mentioned you have the intertnet’s favorite on your magazine for the next issue, so there ya go. XXL chose to go outside of the box but you choose to stay safe. Stay open next time. You know good and well that’s a hot idea. I really hope you consider taking the advice of the many posters who are suggesting you all think outside of the box. Your publication is certainly the one I turn to for hip hop, but please understand hip hop is waaaay beyond black people and the hood. I’m black and from the hood and I’m looking forward to seeing the RS publication w/ the self proclaimed Kings of the Charts.
