COVER STORY

LOOK AT ME

As the most explosive member of his label, YOUNG BUCK is ready to play nice. And with disappointing record sales across the board, G-Unit’s “Clean-Up Man” is primed and in place to prove that hip-hop really does live in the South.

Features

THIS AIN’T THAT

Straight from the ’burbs, CRIME MOB might not be as hood as they seem. Find out how they spun their innocent beginnings into a believable hip-hop image.

I TRIED

LIKE ME

It’s been three years since FABOLOUS’ last album, but with a new label behind him and some recent controversy, the quiet BK MC is ready to get back on the mic.

HOLD ON

With the bust of DJ DRAMA and DJ CANNON, is the mixtape game over, or will it still be trudging on?

I’M RIDIN’
