COVER STORY

MONEY IN THE BANK
Don’t tell LIL WAYNE it’s a bad time for hip-hop. The Cash Money kid is sitting pretty, rolling in dough and rhyming circles around the competition.

Features

HOW WE LIVE
Southern rap got fat while a pair of underground pioneers starved on the streets. (Okay, they weren’t exactly starving.) But now that Pimp C’s free and back by Bun B’s side, it’s UGK’s turn.

OUTTA TOWN SH#T

You thought cats from Alabama were too country for hip-hop? Fool, RICH BOY is throwing D’s from New York to Compton.

CAN’T FORGET ABOUT YOU
Biggie, Biggie, Biggie, can’t you see? Ten years later we’re still missing thee. A tribute in top 10s.

LET IT BE KNOWN
Back in the industry big leagues, but pared down to a trio now, Cleveland’s own BONE THUGS-N-HARMONY are out to recapture the magic—and reclaim their status as living rap legends.
