PREVIEW: XXL‘s Triple Lil Wayne Covers!

For our annual year-end Love/Hate issue, XXL decided to let Weezy have three different covers all to himself. Be the first to see our upcoming January/February issue right now…

  • Jack

    wayne was on the cover 2 issues back. ya’ll runnin out of people.

    LAME

    • MOBSTAR251

      Ask yourself a ? how many people are relevant in the rap game right now…not too many people there only maybe 2 handfulls of niggas that r actually the shit right now, i mean u and i know this niggas mixtapes r actually better than most of these rap niggas albums, tell me im wrong,oh my bad u cant!

      • Calibud

        To add to that, Im sure XXL is trying to set a standard as far as covers goes. None of these niggas deserve covers so if XXL has to rotate the same heads every few issues, so be it. It really shows how sad the game is right now more so than XXL just being “dick-riders”.

        • mobstar251

          so u tell me who is better than wayne NOW? who else is relevant? NO ONE! TI is but hey he dropped an album moths ago and got a cover, Kanye got one b4 his album dropped, HOV got one b4 his shit dropped I think 50 got one but if he did i overlooked it cuz that niggas the biggest hater to walk the earth! I just named just about everyone who is RELEVANT

        • MOBSTAR251

          who else deserves to be on any cover right now…..Here r the RELEVANT PEOPLE RIGHT NOW. TI he had a cover right b4 his album dropped,Kanye had a cover b4 his album dropped,HOV had a cover b4 his album dropped. 50 may have had a cover but i wouldnt remember cuz i overlooked it if he did cuz he is the biggest hater 2 walk the planet!! Thats just about all the RELEVANT rap artists right now if im lying them im flying

      • ian

        u crnt say anyone aint relevent now cos nobody retired! dey still in da game!
        shit jay z and nas are still RELEVENT!wayne a betta rapper then dem? NO!

        people who think wayne is the best rapper alive don’t know hip hop!!

        • deep

          people who think wayne is the best rapper alive don’t know hip hop!!

          THANK YOU!!!!!!
          I been saying that shyt for months!!

        • http://myspace.com j money

          all yall look stupid as fuck if u think wayne aint da shit who da fuk iz jay z he nowhere so hop da fuk off

        • http://myspace j money

          nigga u look stupid as fuck wayne got da best lyrics

        • Deep

          LOL.. Let me guess, you must be between the age of 12 & 25.. The only reason why Wayne is so hot is because he has a dumbass ignorant audience! Y’all young niggaz dont know real hip hop from your from your ass. and any old head that puts Wayne on top is just an idiot. Rapping about bitches, money and drugs is NOT what hip hop is all about stupid. Wayne probably has like 1 conscious rap for every 10 dumbass lyrically retarded rap that he produces about the afore mentioned. that is NOT hip hop, thats Rapping about bullshyt. Learn Hip Hop as an art, culture and movement and you will know that it all about gangsta shyt moron! Lyrically Wayne is handicap and cant hold a torch when it comes to diversity; and we not talking about changing your voice up to sound like a bitch, as he has been known to do. Real “emcee’s” like Nas will destroy Wayne lyrically.

        • deep

          shold have read..
          culture and movement and you will know that it AINT all about gangsta shyt moron!

        • jmoney

          bitch who da fuck iz u u dont no rap

        • J money

          bitch if wayne aint da best who iz

        • Deep

          thats probably the smartest thing you typed on here, and THAT’S THE POINT!! There AINT no fuckin best! All these niggaz got their own flow and own style., let me ask you this, what the fuck makes you think wayne is the best? And please get off that best lyrics shyt because his lyrica are all the fuckin same shyt said over different tracks. Money, murder, bitches and money. That lil nigga aint nevere murder nobody; he a studio gangsta and you know this! tear drops tatt’ed on his face n shyt, bullshyt!! y’all niggaz keep gettin caught up in these celebrities’ ficades and fronts, y’all the ones looking fuckin stupid cause they KNOW they doing the shyt to get paid, they aint all what they say in ther raps, Its the ignorant muthafuckas that think they living the life the protray that plays the fool.. so fucking STUPID..

        • jamesn

          yo some real shit weezy its whats hot right now he may not be the best because lyke you said ppl got diff swaggers but jay-z for real aint shit if he is so good when wayne put out tha track best rapper alive who came back and told him otherwise that even makes a diff i aint goin to front nas n cassidy would prolly would beat weezy lyrically but it would be close tha thing wit weezy is he can get on any beat and kill it nobody else can do that and if you stop lookin in your own shadow you should see that but for real tho stop hatin on the man aint nobody on here got as much shit as him and hes what 26 i mean im sayin stop bein so stubbern and jus understand diff rappers rap for diff generations times change there aint no rules for what hiphop stands for its an expression of how you feel thats why niggas 18-28 are feelin him well any way thats why im feelin him cause he portrays my feelin to the whole world cause wont nobody listen to what i gotta say so thats how i feel

        • Deep

          you entiteld to your “feelin” but that aint the point. The point is.. this nigga aint the best.. he the hottest..who makes him the hottest, the consumer. THATS THE WHOLE POINT. You call it hate’n, I call it check’n. I fucks wit new hip hop just as much as I fuks wit tha old, but I know how to analyze a song and see the redundancy in the lyrics. I aint a Jay Z fan but I will give him credit, there aint another nigga in the biz that can do what he can do in the studio, without pen or paper. Lil Wayne hot cause of just what you said… niggaz fuckin wit’tem right now. But for him or any othr nigga to claim they the best in hip hop is bullshyt. And yo’ mentality of hip hop is JUST why it is in the fucked up state it is in to day. All yall niggas want to do is glorify fuckin superficial shyt, without any roots. The same shyt in every fuckin song? Get fo real…niggaz, bitches, drugs, whips…WTF? ANd lets not forget, this arrogant prick the one that attacked the mothu fuckas in the game who wouldnt even fuckin wit him fa no apparent reason, no respect for the Dons..the OG’s. And the reason wh yJ didnt get at him..WHY?? WHY THE FUCK DID HE HAVE TO??? Jay done did it all, that nigga on top of the fuckin world…This nigga made the Forbes TOP 20…Who the fuck is lil wayne to a nigga whit that kind WEALTH..not i said WEALTH not riches! Fuck being rich… Give me a fuckin legacy. All this buble gum candy shyt that y’all call HIP HOP aint nothing but rap music! Faddish..shyt will be forgotten inside of 5 to 10 years my nigga. And at 26 his stupid as should be smart enough to know not to be fucking riding around with drugs in his whip. WTF kind of buziness man does stupid shyt like that, Him and T.I fucked up, and I am T.I. fan, but if you lived that shyt when you was on the grind, cause you had to, why the fuck you gonna affiliate yoself wit that stupid shyt when you got millions..FUCKIN MORONS both or them.

      • Kenny

    • G-Baby

      Man XXL is a fucking joke. The source is better than yall. 1st off all yall do is put fucking 50 and gay ass Wayne on the cover every 2 months but yall ride Wayne dick hardbody. It’s way hotter artist out there that need the exposure but yall give the same fucking niggas and faggots and fake thigs the same damn spot on yall cover every month. Shit put Em on the cover or something.

      • pimp H

        XXL aint dick ass hater?all dem dope joints is gat dat nigga on it,so wat d fuck u wan say nw,i gues u’ve gat iron head and u cant think rite,shut ur hatin’ trap ass.fucker

    • Kim

      Why the hell are ppl asking for a WuTang cover when they haven’t put ANYTHING out in YEARS?!? Are they even a group?

      Wayne is really killing the game right now, in terms of quantity and quality, so he deserves the cover, point blank….

      Until another rapper can PROVE their desire, hunger, skill, and fan base then they won’t be on the cover :)

      • http://ee.com Monte

        Are you fuckin’ serious? Have you been livin under a rock? Wu’s comming out with an album next month. Get the fuck outta here….man I swear these little kids don’t know what real hip hop is anymore…does anyone not remember Wayne’s Cash Money days he went from that to jackin Jay-Z’s swagger an so have a lot of the current cats in the game over the last 5-6 years….

    • http://www.myspace.com/slashzilla jimbroski kanobi

      no disrespect to hip hop or xxl but which other rapper has had three covers??????i think this lil wayne saturation is jus getting out of hand.im a hip hop head myself but honestly i started paying attention to weezy since the carter.i mean hes hot but its jus too much of wayne three covers for wat……..like jay said he need some classics under his belt for real i bet you after the carter3…………youll see and i aint a hater either its jus ma opinion

    • maceleven

      Yeah. Lil wayne is the best right now, i mean a lot of his mixtapes are better than people mainstream cd’s. But damn mean, in the past 4 months he has been on like 10 (well maybe not ten)magazines. Shouldnt people wait until his album comes out, i mean its 3 months away,no disrepect but all those magazines ride alot of rappers dicks

        u said it young’n sell records, it about hiphop not selling records, it about the culture overstand the hiphop movement not the money and they sell records ask what they do over sea and how can u say that if some were never even given the chance to be on a cover. but i respect your opinion

        • nowestbank

          but the xxl is trying to sell magazines, why would they put Wu on the cover they not hot dont nobody wanna see wu. Maybe in 95 but this is 07-08 we not trying to see that bullsh*t.

    ALL YALL BITCHIN ABOUT WAYNE BEING ON THE COVER NEED TO REALIZE THIS IS A BUSINESS. EVEN THOUGH WE’D LIKE TO SEE GHOST, THE WHOLE WU, OR WHOEVER ON THE COVER, THEY AINT HOT RIGHT NOW. SO JAYZ, WAYNE, AND KANYE GONE KEEP BEING ON THIER CAUSE THEY GOT BUZZ. I LOVE THE WU, BUT WAYNE GONE COME OUT AND DO THEY NUMBERS IN A DAY.

  • mike

  • Triple_X

    Judging the reactions XXL did just right with the Lil Wayne covers. A lot of hate going on…Perfect for the love/hate edition. Damn, I don’t even like Wayne, but I still had to look at this topic.

And then ya’ll went ahead and put him and his down-low lover Baby the “birdman” on the cover. Come-on xxl. ya’ll stopped fuckin’ wit’ benzino and nem’cause they was too mainstream. Ya’ll headed that way……..

  • http://www.xxlmag.com noid

    wasnt wayne and his life partner baby on the cover just a couple of months ago?and now this?he hasnt done anything spectacular or put out any classic material.all he did was get on every possible remix and did a joint with every wack up and coming rapper and r&b bum bitch.whats really good with ya’ll.if this keeps on going i’m not gonna renew my subsription.xxl is losing it fast!

  • mosdef

  • showtime

    ya’ll hear B.A.R.S.,,, i love wayne, but hes already got a couple lately, put the kid CASSIDY on that cover after a dope CD and a long run back

    • Triple_X

      This one’s even funnnier than the Lil’ Flip cover. Cassidy is weak. His dopest song to date is still “Hotel”.

  • og bobby j

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    did that cat just suggest lil flip for the cover….
    (falls out of his seat crying from laughing)

  • Casper

    KING BOOKAAAAAH!

  • soy-yo

    He might rap, he might write, he might have skills, but c’mon that boy’s face is messed up! He mess it up even more with those dumb ass childish tatoos. Might ass well go to the fair and play the drop-in-the-water clown. Lyrics? $500. Guest appearence? $2000. Wayne’s face? priceless (and scary, not from fear but from disgust).

    • lyrical_87

      YO WAYNE MY NIGGA NO HOMO BUT THAT WAS SOME FUNNY SHIT SOY-YO LMAO

  • Ghost Deini

    FLIP!? JA!!?? I’m waiting for somebody to say “Let’s put BLEEK on the cover.”

  • Ghost Deini

    ” Biggie says:

    how bout gettin lil flip for once in the cover”

    I can hear B.I.G. sayin that from up above…

    LOL !

  • FCKNReBeL

    LMAO @ og bobby j I said the same fuckin thing

  • XXL disgusts me

    wow…..i knew y’all weren’t too bright, but i really did give you more credit than this.
    you’re photo editor has never been great….BUT PICK A FUCKING SHOT! just one! and the fact that the rest of y’all went along with this just adds insult to injury.
    it’s very very sad that this is the best hip-hop mag out there. its not because you’re great, it’s because, somehow, vibe and source manage to suck even more.

  • Capostatus

    Fucken Little Weasel. Hate this litlle Southern country ass lame nigga. No matter how manyy xxl covers u southern losers get u will never, ever, ever surpass the critical and commercial success enjoyed by New York artists over the past decade. U will never have a Biggie, U will Never have a Jay-z, U will never have a 50 cent, u will never have a Wu tang clan, U will never have a DMX, U will never have a Camron. Truth hurts ya dig. New york niggaz the wildest. Believe in us bitches. Real talk.

    • Rob

      damn, u mad homie? it aint that serious, go fuck a bitch or sumthin. u cryin like u on ur period or something……….sad

    • Black

      Damn nigga quit cryin and do some push ups or something. True the south doesn’t have a Jay, Biggie, or maybe even Nas(you can have the other garbage ass niggas you named)but we have Scarface, Andre 3000, The Dungeon Family, Lil Wayne, TI, need I go on???

  • whatever

    hip hop officially has turned gay.
    some of y’all need to clean the nut juice from the corners of your mouth.

    never thought this day would come. the day hip hop accepted the man on man type.

  • Colin

    This is some bull shit how are yall gonna let this bitch have three covers we just seen his gay ass 3 issues back yall are fuckin up

  • Jack

    I’m a lil wayne fan but i do think he’s in danger of overexposure people usually get covers as they cd is coming out when waynes cd coming out? i don’t think its for a while. but more importantly then who’s on the cover who’s in the eye candy ahhah

  • hustle.unltd

    … do they recycle covers at magazines like rolling stone, gq, vibe … help me out … even the source? hate to even mention that, but.

    i don’t hate on any rapper – whether i like their shit or not – for getting the exposure they may or may not deserve, but having wayne on three covers, at once, “love/hate”, right after the ca$h money cover, makes it seem like “here’s the new shit – mixtapes sponsored by xxl … but with pages instead.”

  • http://myspace.com/kollectors Kool@ Den Ur Average…

    who is really sukkin off wezzy here (at xxl) there are other rapper dat deserve 2 b on cover wit albums but i dnt c dem.
    sum of those leaders from the november issue who dnt belong may deserve there own cover.

  • http://myspace.com/kollectors Kool@ Den Ur Average…

    I THINK LUPE DESERVES HIS OWN COVER WIT ALL HIS CONTROVERSY DATLL SELL ITSELF

  • msJess

    xxl…
    you need more people!
    wasnt wayne just on the cover a few months back with baby???

  • bottom boi g

    Haha Wheres da Wu Tang cover or you New Yorkers serious? This is a fucking business. Not no salvation army type shit. Wayne on the cover = more magazine sells. Wu-tang be lucky if they can get a full page article. Shit the hotboys could even get a cover if they return all of them still relevant. You new yorkers always weeping like some spoiled brats. Get the titty out ya mouth and tell yall artist to grind harder. cuz nobody giving handouts. The south and whoever else hot right now grinding for whats the want. no time for complaining

  • angelbaby

    THIS IS SOOOOOO WACK WACK WIGGTY WACK!!! WTF wasnt he just on IN SEPTEMBER!!! WHO IS WAYNE F@#KIN OVER THERE!!! THIS IS SOOO LAME!!!

  • I am VA

    Capostatus, let me inform you on a few things…

    first where is cam’ron? his team dipset on his ass…and he can’t rap his way outta wet paper bag…he makes new york look bad…plus that lame named 50 cent killed his career…

    50 cent is a biter…50 cent isn’t even the real 50 cent…lame ass g,g,g,g unot…

    Nas and Hov are the greatest alive no doubt…
    But don’t forget The Teacher and Mr. Paid In Full…

    And we have Scarface, UGK and OutKast below the mason dixie line for all you haters of southern rap….

    and my native VA peeps, The Clipse is nice as they get(don’t sleep on us VA boyz)

    Weezy is on his shit right now…I’ll put my life savings and my seeds trust fund up that he will merk you in a battle…there wouldn’t be a battle…he eat you alive and regurgitate you for his peeplings…

    Haterism seems like the way of the future…

    • Black

      Well said

    • T

      VA all day, but I dont think Wayne is a battle artist. He doesnt battle.

      • deep

        Nah, Weezy aint no battle rapper. I heard that shyt he did on Jigga.. he aint got what it takes bruh

    • http://www.xxlmag.com va lives in his own world

      you’re stupid.murk who?what?or when?that little fagoot is shook to death to even say a niggas name in an article.when a dude gives someone like wayne so much props….i question their sexuality!

  • http://swaggercity.blogspot.com/ S.K.~ Crunkston

    After looking at these covers, we as a people need to acknowledge what rap music has done for black men.

    Why?

    Because Wayne looks like the crazy man jumping on cars when they exit I-95.

  • gamma

    Crooked I or Nas lets start the new year fresh man I guess do your thang wezzy dont drop the ball.

  • http://www.yahoo.com what it do

    should have gave Ja Rule the cover

  • Hip Hop Fan

    Should have given Mike Jones, lil keke, or J hood a cover….NOT

    I’m not advocating puting this dude on the cover..cuz he be lookign ridiculous lol no homo.. but its a business, you have to see what’s hot and make money of that. Now wayne could b in danger of overexposure.

  • new jerz c

    how many units Weezy push this year? Kanye would have been a better choice if you give a nigga two covers in the last 4 months.

    • Black

      He didn’t push no units because he didn’t drop a CD this year. If you’re going to argue, have a valid point dumb ass!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://www.xxlmag.com Lo

    C’mon yall lets be real. As many true hip hop fans there are aint nobody checkin for the Wu on the damn cover. I mean I fucks with em but u gotta understand the main objective is to sell mags. People of all ages kno Lil Wayne so him on the cover = $$$$$$$$$$$$. Its simple math. Kids today cant even name a member in the Wu but will rap the whole Drought series. Face it: Wayne is the most relevant now n he got the cover.

    i see my post disappeared, or never showed up. guess you’re not allowed to mention how hip hop has done the unthinkable. accepting man-to-man kissing and suspect actions.

    who would’ve predicted a ‘special needs’ individual, who openly kissed another man damn near twice his age, would be considered the best rapper alive?
    oh yeah, what do they say about the drop out rate and the comprehension level of the youth these days?

  • Working Man

    I feel all of the Jay supporters and all and, truth be told, my favorite album of all time is Reasonable Doubt and my favorite song of all time is Dead Presidents…I like both, both Dead Pres 1 was the ish. With that said, Wayne is killing the game and no one is close. I don’t like comparing the two and I still won’t say who I think the better rapper, at least until Wayne retires. Jay has obviously hit his prime and is on the decline. I do not believe Wayne has hit his prime yet. He deserves all three covers…and a fourth if there is one. No one has ever killed the mixtape game like he is doing now. True or false? Like it or not, you know the answer.

    So now people who think Wayne is the best rapper alive don’t know hip hop? That’s crazy. Wayne is the best rapper alive, hands down. Ain’t nobody seeing him, anyone stepping up to him would definitely get knocked down. We see Jay or Nas ain’t step to Weezy baby yet..& they’re not going to either, ’cause they know what’s up. Wayne being on three different covers is the best thing XXL could have done. So what if he was on the cover a few months ago. Don’t nobody wanna see Nas or nobody else on the cover. You know how much sells XXL probably got off of having him on the cover, AND how much they’re going to get this go-round? Wayne is a money maker and will be for a long time. Nas ain’t selling shit right now, so hop off that chicken dinner and get with a winner lol

    Man. I mean lil wayne is the best right now, but why give him the cover now shouldnt they wait until his album drops, i mean that banana peeling monkey been on like 6 covers on the last month,including Vibe,Scratch and xxl. But i think he is the best rapper alive, cassidy, could give him a run for his money though, they should have gave him a cover, because he just drop an album, and coming back from his accident and jail time. be on the lookout for Mack Maine, he kinda nice

  • it doesnt matter

    weezy is the perfect individual for the LOVE/HATE issue, which is the reason he is gettin the COVER…… theres a million people who love his craft and a million who dont give two shits about the man…. but let that nigga do him, you aint makin no money big’n up the nigga or puttin him down… holler

    XXL,
    Wayne is NOT the embodiment of Hip Hop. I understand you all trying to give the people the latest, but come on.. this is overkill. You really need to help resurrect hip hop by giving exposure to ALL artists. Stop advocating the commercial side of hip hop. Show us the underdawgs as well as those who are hot…thats what hip hop is all about.

    I tell you what, go find DJ Kool Herc (sp) and do an article on him. A lot of these young heads dont have a fuckin clue who he is!

  • Jay

    lol… lil wayne is a trend at best, he’s been in the game for 10 years and just got hot when the south got hot. He wasn’t nationally respected from his first album like Jay was nor has he “dominated” hip hop for a decade plus that’s why he’s not a legend like Hov is. Even Wayne recognizes Jay as one of his influences and labeled him the “greatest rapper alive” by his own statements, and in then end, Weezy is singing Jay’s hook on Hello Brooklyn, comparing Jay to Biggie and Pac, and on top of that, Wayne isn’t even true to his home, “so I said good Katrina, and hello Brooklyn!!!.. lol, there’s no comparison, but Weezy is a hot artist though(right now)

    • Deep

      I’m in Korea right now!
      I ask my Korean soldiers if they know who lil wayne is, they said no, but you ask them about 50 Cent, Jay Z, Emenim, Snoop, Ice Cube, Dr Dre, T.I, and the know who the fuck them Niggaz iz. Lil Wayne aint nowhere near internatinal…. Japan aint but a 2 hour plane trip away, I’m going there on my next 4 day weekend, lemme see if I can find that nigga there…LOL

      lol….My korean soldier just came up to me talking bout Kanye…OK so they know who Kanye is too!!

  • Mrddp3

    At one point in time I gave Weezy his credit fo majorly stepping up his rap game. Even after knowing he’s a studio gangster and a homo for kissing Baby in the mouth. What part of the game is that!! But really after reading this article, his head is as big as his career. Better than Jy, Pac, or Biggie, get the fuck outta here you fucking lame!!!!

    Lil Wayne is GREAT.
    I like the multi covers.
    When I find someone I respect (either for their music/other art forms or just their accomplishments), I like to collect articles, pics, or other memorabelia.
    For Example;
    I was in awe the first time (as a 13 year girl) I heard NWA…I was like “What is THIS!!!?
    I started my collection and followed them.
    I now have a great box of their history…their story.

  • Steve

    Lil Wayne is way to overated talking about who he’s the best rapper alive, and for him to even say that even if Pac or Biggie came back he’d still be the best rapper is alive is wack. I truly doubt he’d have the balls to say that if they really were here. Like Jay-Z says he has more work to creat before he’s ever compared to any of these legends. I don’t think it’s fair for any rapper to say they’re better then Biggie or Pac simply becuase they never even got a chance to reach their full potenual, we will never really know how much greater those men would’ov became, and for Lil Wayne to even compare himself to Malcom X or Martin Luther King is out right fucking crazy, if he was in a room with those two men right now he’d be too high out of his mind to have an intelligent conversation with them, those men lived and fought hard so we could live better lives he just lives to make music and get rich and high all the time. He needs to get of his thrown. He looks like a broke down version of knuckles from Sonic the Hedghog

    • IIT’S HOVI BABY!!

      I HAVE TO AGREE. LIL’ WAYNE IS JUST A FAD RIGHT NOW. I AM FROM DUVAL IN FLORIDA AND THEY LOVE WAYNE HERE. BY ME BEING A JAY FAN, PEOPLE CONSIDER ME GREEN. BUT I DON’T GIVE A FUCK! JAY BROUGHT ON ALL OF HIS ALBUMS, ESPECIALLY A.G. AND BLUEPRINT 1. DON’T GET ME WRONG, WAYNE IS OK. HE MAKES HITS, SO HATS OFF TO HIM. BUT SOME OF THE SHIT HE SAYS, YOU’LL BE LIKE “HUH?? WHAT??” AND JAY CHALLENGED HIS ASS ON “HELLO BROOKLYN” JAY KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING WHEN HE PUT WAYNE ON THAT BEAT. WAYNE SOUNDED RIDICULOUS AND HOV KILLED IT, ESPECIALLY ON HIS SECOND VERSE. SO YALL NEED TO STOP COMPARING WAYNE TO JAY. THERE IS NO COMPARISON! JAY IS DAMN NEAR 40 AND WAYNE IS 25. JAY HAS BEEN THERE AND DONE THAT, THEREFORE HE WILL NOT TALK ABOUT CHILDISH SHIT. JAY IS ENJOYING HIS MONEY AND LIVING LIFE TO THE FULLEST…

  • lil Lump

  • http://yahoo.com Flyy

    Yep he deserve to be on 4 covers.lol.4real tho

    He a BEAST,just like he say!

    I listen to hella rappers tho….

    But he iz The Best…Ya Herd Meh!

  • http://myspace/com/biggdamage Bigg Damage

    I’m loving the 3 individual covers. Lil Wayne’s just got the swagger to show off now, and he sure does “Show Off!” Weezy has been on a lot of them though, so I do hope they step their game up coverwise.

  • LaKrazii

    Everybody hatin because Lil Wayne got three album covers at one time…if u do not like it dont pick up the magazine…Lil Wayne got swagga that everybody is drawn too..if u dont like it dont speak on it…yall hating only making him better….Lil Wayne was what 16 when he came out? come on now what 16 year old gon go extremely hard in the game and get respect where its due?? i give him respect because everybody knew his name then and they breathe his name now..Lil Wayne great at what he do..and he only got better over the time he been in the game..WuTang time is up..Nas sitting back and waiting..and HOV still doing what he do..but Lil Wayne made that fire for 2007 and about to make it even hotter for 2008

  • Deep

    Man, I’m listening to all this psycho babble about the “Best Rapper Alive” (LOL).. this nigga went and said it and all y’all dick ridaz speaking it like its the Gospel! Half of y’all probably just listening to the lil nigga talking about how much money he got and the cars he drive and thinking, “Oh those lyrics was dope how he said that!” The muthafucka talkin about the same goddamn thing in every song!! Just because you SAY it a different way dont make it hot. It makes it redundant.

    For somebody to be titled the greatest rapper alive they have to conquer all aspects of hip hop and rapping. You show me where wayne has done that. Pac did it. HE COVERED HIP HOP. he had rymez that talk about the game, bitches, money, BUT, BUT, BUT, he came right back and hit you with the inspirational shyt, the positive shyt, the controversial government shyt; and THATS HIP HOP… It’s a cultural movement, rapping is but one aspect of hip hop.

    So you know what, fuck it, if Wayne wants to be the best RAPPER ALIVE let him have it, BUT HE DAMN SURE AND THE BEST HIO HOP ARTIST ALIVE, AND HE FUCKIN NEVER WILL BE!! It aint in him!

    And for all ya busta’s gonna try ta jump in my shyt for jumpin on ya man, produce some shyt that Wayne did that compares to,
    1. Tupac
    2. Biggie
    3. KRS One
    4. Nas
    5. Common
    6. Rakim
    7. Eminem
    8. NWA
    9. Scarface
    10. UGK
    11. T.I.
    12. Public Enemy
    13. Redman
    14. Busta Bus
    15. LL Cool J
    16. Big Daddy Kane
    17. Mobb Deep
    18. Outkast
    19. EPMD
    20. Snoop

    each of these kats were masters of their styles an many of them are inventors of their own style, Wayne didnt invent SHYT, he is a conglamorator of different styles that he jacked from certain legends. If lil Wayne is the embodiment of all these cold ass kats, then dammit PROVE IT!! show me a mutha fuckin track that he has to compare with each one of the legends of the buiz!!

    KRS Said it best right here:

    Step into a world (Klaka klaka, klaka klaka!)
    Where there’s no one left (Buku, buku! Alla de massive!)
    But the very best (Klaka, bo bo, BDP crew, bo bo bo bo!)
    No MC can test *cut and scratch of KRS saying “but one”*
    Step into a world, where hip-hop is me
    Where MC’s and DJ’s
    Build up their skills as they play every day
    For the, rapture

    Yeah, what what!
    Yes yes y’all, ya don’t stop, KRS-One, rock on!
    Yes yes y’all, ya don’t stop, KRS-One, rock on!

    Verse One:

    I’m bout to hit you wit that tradional style of cold rockin
    Givin options for head knockin non stoppin
    Tip-toppin lyrics we droppin but styles can be forgotten
    so we bring back the raw hip-hoppin
    Just like the records and tapes you be coppin
    Cop some breakdancin, boogie poppin, and lockin
    Tic tockin, guaranteed to have you clockin
    We only get better and only better we have gotten
    This type of flow don’t even think about stoppin
    Beware, the length of the rhyme flow can be shockin
    All music lovers in the place right now
    That never understood the way that KRS got down
    Yo I’m strictly about skills and dope lyrical coastin
    Relying on talent, not marketing and promotion
    If a dope lyrical flow is a must
    You gots to go with a name you can quickly trust
    I’m not sayin I’m number one, uhh I’m sorry, I lied
    I’m number one, two, three, four and five
    Stop wastin your money on marketing schemes
    and pretty packages pushin dreams to the beams
    A dope MC is a dope MC
    With or witout a record deal, all can see
    And that’s who KRS be son
    I’m not the run of mill, cause for the mill I don’t run

    Yes yes y’all, ya don’t stop, KRS-One, rock on!
    Yes yes y’all, ya don’t stop, KRS-One, rock on!

    Chorus

    Verse Two:

    Yeah, yeah
    Everybody on the mic in the party sound alike
    until I recite, in black and white what’s right
    Let me take flight, my style is TIGHT AN GOOD
    TIGHT AN GOOD, come is it TIGHT AN GOOD
    Old styles I pass dat, slow down on fast rap
    All in yo’ ass crack, old King go Blast dat
    Conjure to ask dat, hyper type of flashback
    I publish like ASCAP lyrics for hand clap
    No past rappin, youth trackin, talent lackin
    MC’s more worried about their financial backin
    Steady packin a gat as if something’s gonna happen
    But it doesn’t, they wind up shootin they cousin, they buggin
    I appear everywhere and nowhere at once
    I know my style is bumpin, even though some people front
    It’s the God of rap, you heard of it
    The one that rhymes toward the sky givin airplanes mad turbulence
    In rap tournaments, I reign permanent
    Don’t you think by now the number one spot I’m not concerned with it
    The course of rap I’m turnin it
    Back to that good old fashioned way of getting cash money by earning it
    No bogus hocus pocus, I bring back to focus
    Skills if you notice my position is lotus

    Now quote this, MC’s are just hopeless
    Thinkin record sales make them the dopest

    Yes yes y’all, ya don’t stop, KRS-One, rock on!

  • deep

    and again with this one:

    A North Face and skully hat don’t MAKE YOU A THUG

    A army suit, a pair of Timbs don’t MAKE YOU A THUG

    An ill mug and a gat don’t MAKE YOU A THUG

    A real thug is a thug that’s HUSH!

    [KRS-One]

    Yo, yo, yo, check it, check it

    Let us begin, KRS, winnin again, KRS-One did it again

    KRS bigger than them, look at them they bit it again

    I think my gun just gonna start clickin again

    Click-clack, I always spit back

    Anybody call my name I go get that

    In fact we draggin ‘em out, to a deserted route

    The teacher returns, you must learn, the word is out

    No doubt highly respected, Front Page Records

    Off the hook, yet still connected

    Are you teachin yourself, teachin yourself?

    I’m like history repeatin itself

    “Criminal Minded”, you’ve been blinded again

    Lookin for my style you can’t find it again

    You can find these others that may sound like Kris

    but when it comes to the hands they don’t get down like Kris!

    They never ran up in the clubs with a hundred thugs

    Never had the respect of Crips and Bloods

    Never knew B.O., they never knew Big Pun

    They never battled MC’s, they never bust they gun

    They don’t know that, all they know is that show DAT

    That’s Digital Audio Tape if you don’t know that

    Now go back and get my name correct

    ‘fore I snatch that platinum from ’round your neck

    [Chorus 2X: Nyce]

    A doo rag a platinum chain don’t MAKE YOU A THUG

    A fat ride with chrome don’t MAKE YOU A THUG

    That tough guy talk don’t MAKE YOU A THUG

    A real thug is a thug that’s HUSH!

    [KRS-One]

    Word, yeah yeah, uh-huh, yo

    Yo, yo, yo (hit ‘em Kris!)

    What mean the world to me?H-I-P, H-O-P

    And S-I-M, O-N-E

    And G-O-D, I stay low key

    I go down to hell, and slap up Satan

    Then return to heaven, where Scott LaRock is waitin

    Resurrection, just like my brown complexion

    when I speak, I don’t need protection from the heat

    I walk these streets and I’m quick to hit first

    Throw on any beat I’ll be quick to spit first

    and rip town, I take one look around

    And all you hear is, “Get down, get down, get down!”

    Knowledge Reigns Supreme, I stay on blast

    That’s why these rappers want me to go on last

    That’s the truth, that’s the fact, that’s the deal

    Forget sex appeal, my tech is real

    And my rep is real, K-R-S

    Woo-woop-woop!That’s the sound of E-M-S

    The rag on your head, it best stay white

    Cause I can turn that red in a mintue a-ight?

    Now go back and get my name correct

    ‘fore I snatch them diamonds from ’round your neck

    Once again, get my name correct

    ‘fore I snatch that platinum from ’round your neck

    [Chorus: Nyce]

    A North Face and skully hat don’t MAKE YOU A THUG

    A army suit, a pair of Timbs don’t MAKE YOU A THUG

    An ill mug and a gat don’t MAKE YOU A THUG

    A real thug is a thug that’s HUSH!

    A doo rag a platinum chain don’t MAKE YOU A THUG

    A fat ride with chrome don’t MAKE YOU A THUG

    That tough guy talk don’t MAKE YOU A THUG

    A real thug is a thug that’s HUSH!

    [KRS-One]

    Yeah.. yeah.. yo, yo, yo

    To all my heads who wanna see an improvement

    in hip-hop culture, join this movement

    We need more glocks than my man Freddie Foxxx

    The knowledge I spit to the click it don’t stop

    That hardcore God-core, ready to start war

    Rock more shock more top your pop tour

    I’m sure I’ll drop the grade to zero

    When the teacher return, I don’t chase DeNiro

    Like where yo?Where yo?They livin in fear yo

    It’s a jungle sometime, but I got my spear yo

    The album’s called “Sneak Attack”, that’s what it is

    KRS-One spittin facts to kids

    [Chorus: Nyce]

    A army suit, a pair of Timbs don’t MAKE YOU A THUG

    That tough guy talk don’t MAKE YOU A THUG

    An ill mug and a gat don’t MAKE YOU A THUG

    A real thug is a thug that’s HUSH!

    A doo rag a platinum chain don’t MAKE YOU A THUG

    A North Face and skully hat don’t MAKE YOU A THUG

    A fat ride with chrome don’t MAKE YOU A THUG

    A real thug is a thug that’s HUSH!
