Last night, Magic Johnson was interviewed by CNN regarding the claims made against him by the Los Angeles Clippers' disgraced owner Donald Sterling. While the reaction to Sterling's remarks—wherein he said Johnson should be "ashamed" for having AIDS, which he does not have—was vitriolic, it's far from the first time the Los Angeles Lakers legend has been in the headlines. As one of the greatest NBA players of all time—and an ambassador for a disease, HIV, that has had the entire world on edge for decades—he's gotten name-checked in a multitude of hip-hop tracks. With that in mind, XXL has compiled 36 hip-hop songs that reference Magic Johnson. —Dan Rys

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life from any association with the Clippers or the NBA, after audio leaked of Sterling and his girlfriend V. Stiviano arguing over Stiviano having posted photos of  African-Americans—one in particular being NBA legend Magic Johnson—on Instagram and reprimanding her for bringing African-Americans to Clippers game.

Commissioner Silver fined Sterling $2.5 million, which will be donated to organizations dedicated to anti-discrimination and tolerance efforts that will be jointly selected by the NBA and the players, and will urge the board of Governors to force Sterling to sell the team. This is the story that is sweeping the nation and is casting a dark cloud over the NBA Playoffs. XXL spoke to two L.A. MCs, Glasses Malone and Murs, to get their take on the Sterling controversy and what happens next. —Emmanuel C.M.

Glasses Malone And Murs Respond To The Clippers’ Donald Sterling

rapper producer duos
Last week, XXL brought you the 10 greatest rapping duos of all time, our unranked list of the ten one-two punches that we've seen work off each other lyrically and effortlessly. The Clipse, Mobb Deep, Jay and 'Ye—they're all in there, trading bars and swapping metaphors at the genre's highest level. We made the distinction of keeping that list strictly to rappers so we could follow it up today with the best rapper/producer combinations the game has ever seen. From Eric B. and Rakim to Prodigy and Alchemist, these one-two punches offer a different variety, one in which a single rapper has developed such a chemistry with a producer that they became, in a way, synonymous with each other.

For the most part, this means that the duo has worked together for more than one album; we've made exceptions to include dynamic twosomes such as Marley Marl and Big Daddy Kane, who laid the groundwork for Kane's fantastic solo career, as well as KRS-One and Scott LaRock, who were the minds behind Boogie Down Productions before LaRock's untimely death robbed them of further collaboration. But when it comes to this list, we made one major distinction: the two must have, at one point in their careers, been synonymous with each other. 9th Wonder may be more well-known from his work with Jay Z and Little Brother, but his five albums with Murs can't be ignored, either. Timbaland and Missy Elliott may have gone their separate ways, but without Timbo's beats we would never have had Missy's flair; Snoop and Dr. Dre, for all their collaborations on The Chronic and Doggystyle, always identified as individuals first, rather than partners.

With that in mind, here are XXL's 15 greatest rapper/producer duos in hip-hop history, left unranked for our readers to decide the order. Once again, let the debates begin. —XXL Staff with Layne Weiss
