  • http://www.myspace.com/friscorepresent ant

    Soooo thats cover number 100000000 for 50?

  • Who dat?

    Y’all people have to stop this crap..these folks are not only irrelevant they have never shown real hip hop artistry. Looking hard in front of a camera and shit…GROW THE FCUK UP!! and to think that there are thousands of negros not going to school, not holding down a job, begging attention from A&Rs, hoping their trick is going to be noticed one day for the cash in. We need an age limit in Hip Hop..no one older than 25…fcuk no one less than 21.

    • gang green

      No matter what u can hate the unit all u want but if u cant respect what they have brought to the rap game ur just a fuckin hatea watch as soon as the album drops ur gonna be all on there dick AGAIN just like when they first came out

    • Kev Lomax

      Jay-Z didn’t drop til he was 27.

      Eminem didn’t get on until he was 26.

      Nas spit his first shit on Main Source when he was 17.

      Pac was droppin shit at 18.

      All 4 of these motherfuckers land outside of your wack ass date range. If you’re telling me we don’t need their kind of Hip-Hop, Solja Boy must be in your top 5.

      If that’s a mufucka’s dream, to be a rapper, who the fuck are you to say they can’t get paid to do it.

      And if you lookin for grown ups, you listenin to the wrong shit. Try easy listenin. Barry Manilow or some shit.

  • who dat ?

    ^^^ FCUCK no one more than 21 years old…..

    Y’all folk gonna give me a heart attack or some shit.

    i think the only reason why 50 is even on the damn cover is because of his upcoming appearance at wrestlemania.

  • DJdavidjoel

    Is Lil Wayne gonna be on next months? You guys need to step your game up, 50′s last album was a flop, and you still suck his dick. This is the kind of shit that makes me think that XXL is continously going downhill.

    • Ha Ha

      They the only niggaz that got shit OFFICIALLY poppin. Thisis50.com is some new innovative shit that’s BEYOND THE MUSIC. Its moving right with the internet wave, something none of these other rappers have figured out. GENIUS at work.

  • Ha Ha

    Its THE UNIT, nobody else is on the cover…
    because nobody else is POPPIN. Them niggaz got their own “myspace” not “myspace page”. THEIR OWN ONLINE COMMUNITY. What other rappers got that? Your favorite has got to catch up.
    This is the new wave. That localized south movement is burning its way out. People like them, but don’t respect them enough too buy their shit. So what does 50 do? Creates a site where he generates traffic and distributes the material. Every click is probably a register going off. GENIUS at work and THE FIRST TO DO IT. Of course they should be on the cover…

  • jburg

    You niggas are some fucking haters! for real! Not one cd that came out so far this year, LP or mixtape fucking with that “return of the bodysnatcher”! They the hottest shit out right now. Give respect to them niggas for waiting out the storm and stepping in when everyone elses chips are down. 50 is a marketing genius. Name one crew hotter than The Unit? You can’t! Their new mixtape will be downloaded for than the top cd on the billboard charts next week! I would put money on that. This is setting up to be a good year for the G-unit/Shady/Aftermath crew!! Stop hating and show some respect!!

  • Story

    will still buy the mag but dissapointed, only member i like is buck. would have preferred Rick “trilla” Ross on cover.

  • fat slow

    GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG’s up

  • Ryan

    How much does XXL suck on Aftermath/Shady/G-Unit’s cock? Seriously, more than half the issues have either Eminem, 50 Cent, Dre or some member of G-Unit on the cover.

    • Kev Lomax

      To put it bluntly…how else they gonna sell magazines?

      I don’t really see a cover with Jin on it flying off the shelves.

      You gotta make money to print more magazines.

  • drink my babies

    did Buck cut the braids off?

  • Neven

    hey come on lets be real Flo Rida (only dance to it) is killing the charts and has been. Pete Rock just put out a classic (in my mind) Lupe is going on tour with chi town King Q-Tip Just announce Obama (source cover) being on his Album
    An actual Q-Tip album Ice Cube is dropping again with a classic single and remix to start off wit…. I can go on and on …….. the same thing happened to Scratch they started to put rappers (not even good ones) on the cover that nobody cared for and the went tits up I’ll just by the source this month and read my boys XXL.

    • NYCe

      dope cover…Flo Rida was just in the last issue. he had an article. Pete Rock went double Foil. no1 cares about him. Name 3 dope joints Q-Tip has put out in the last month? I’m not mad at the G-Unit cover. looks dope. I’m just mad at shitty music from other rappers.

    • jburg

      Flo Rida? Get the fuck out of here! that shit is trash.Pete Rock? Yeah classic in your mind, who the fuck else is looking for that shit? Lupe going on tour? And? How many records he selling these days? Funny thing is, I like dude. Ice Cube has a classic single but is getting no spins. And that shit don’t always lead to record sales. You can go on and on? I’ll wait…………………………………………………………

      • Neven

        Keep going… OK.. what about bill cosby and his rap record lets hear about that. KRS one still criminal minded, EPMD getting a new album out, two mega producers making up Timbo and storch. Put papoose on let him talk about the whole fight thing. Bun B coming out with a new one (should had the cover with pimp for UK) Common chi town god… What about OutKast and their solo albums…. get some Wu on the cover Ghost last album great Wu’s album 50/50 New…. my point is that 50 and G unit don’t have to be on every f**ing cover there are a lot more M.C. making news that some of us like…. I buy every issue religiously and would like to see on the cover someone other than a major label you don’t need a cover to sell mags… I think most of you that follow this rap just care about albums and not the message and maybe that is why Hip Hop is dying my opinion….. why haven’t Dilated Peoples been on a cover Evidence is one of the illist on mic and the production.

THEY PUT PEOPLE ON THE COVERS WHO R DOIN SOMETHIN. I MEAN WHAT, U WANT MC HAMMER ON THE COVER? STOP IT. AND STOP HATIN ON THE UNIT.CNT WAIT FOR THE ALBUM…AND THE COVER IS CREATIVE, KINDA.

  • http://www.universalarticle.com/blog UA

    G-Unit! These guys are doing it! Kill All Haters! 50 put everyone on their commercial grind, period! Even the independents are doing like the Unit, mixtapes every month, DVDs every 6 months, Sirus, 12″s every f**kin month, small concentrated tours, etc!
    Yeah, others should get cover love but this is XXL.

  • Snowman

    Okay, i cant say that G-unit is the most relevante group right now. I must say that you could have gotten someone else on there.

    and isnt Hot Rod and Mobb Deep part of G-unit??

  • Marvin

    it would be nice for this mag to step out the box like it did before. please check your history. how many times can 50/g-unit lil wayne be on a cover?
    get somebody else, why didnt common get a cover by himself, get a ghostface or something, just not the same face every other month.

    • Chaka

      Why cant you see the obvious.Common or Pete Rock on the front cover of XXL wont make much sales.My brother we have to be true to ourselves,50 is not only a money making machine he is a genius.He sets the pace and others follow.I admire the intelligence that brother has.Even some of our favorite rappers that have been in the game longer than 50 cant boast of the kind of success and achievments he has made in just a short space of time that he has been in the game.Hate him or love him, 50 is still relevant to hip hop.Peace an hip hop head in Africa wrote this.

  • KILLAZ

    You know, yall niggas is funny as hell.
    Its crazy how haters just stay away from threads that they cant hate on. That mixtape goes hard as hell and hatin ass niggas cant even deny it, so them niggas stay quiet.
    Has anybody noticed how many threads there has been in the last month giving G Unit their props
    Haters cant even download this and hate it.
    every track is fiiiiiiiire.

    fuck this bull shit!,why is these niggaz on the cover when they aint really hot right now they juss average and why you niggas suckin 50′s dick so much, you soon gon catch sumthn.the nigga is a dumb bitch,he claimed he was gon quit after Kanye raped him on the charts, but nay,the nigga is still up in our faces with his talentless over-marketed spice-girls like click.yo! well em niggas make aight mix tapes but who gives a shit, when Game dropped “stop snitchin,stop lyin’, they didn’t have shit to fight back, but now that they out “beefin’ with a wack MC like Fat Hoe, they realease a tape and look all hard,em niggas is gimmicks .5o is slowly falling off,his album sales faltering are a clear indication.Yayo bricked,so did Buck,Banks,Olivia and Mobb Deep. em niggas is mediocre.look at their beefs,.1st, there was Murder,Inc a label with no rapper what so ever, fronted by a midget,they only won that coz Eminem joined in.with Game they got dismantled to the point that even lil’ 5-year-olds knew that em niggas couldn’t rap. and now we wonder why the fuck they are on the cover? is Jimmy Iovine paying you niggas rent or what? did they promise you some o that “50 cent’ money? or a round with Olivia? damn I don’t get it,or is it all because Hip-hop is so fucked up now that ,there aint shit to put up.Niggas should stop with this pussy-faggot name-calling and slug it out like the gangstaz they claim they are,holla

    • Coka

      I think your the one suckin it homie! I hate to tell it like it is, but since G-Unit put New York Hip Hop in the graveyard back in late 04 early 05, what has 50 and g-unit done since. Think about it! Tony Yayo-Flop…50′s second album, wack! Lloyd Banks Rotten apple-Flop! 50′s curtis-Same shit as his previous two albums! (Someone correct me if I’m wrong!) Face it son Fat joe’s been a lot more relevent in these last few years then 50 and Gay-Unit…Fat Joe’s albums have been straight Fire these last few years, and his two latest singles with (one with weezy, and the other with legendary Krs-One) are scorchers! Later!

  • Nephew

  • wtf is wrong with you people?

    Why do people think sales or popularity means something is good. You dickriding fags are full of shit. Just cause 50 sold a bunch of albums first week don’t mean the album was good. MC Hammer sold a shit load of albums but that don’t mean it was quality music. This is why the game is fucked up. You attach yourself to an artist like they can do no wrong. 50 been wack since GRODT Banks first album was aight both of Bucks albums are tight Yayo is wack. Mobb Deep although I’ve allways been a fan Blood Money was 50\50 which is acctually pretty good nowadays. Hop off of G Units dick people and praise them when they make some quality music (excluding Buck). You sound like some assholes who are getting paid by them to dickride on the internet. I don’t care how rich 50 is that don’t make him a good MC. And the beef thing is played out I bet half the people talking shit about Fat Joe probably got at least one of his albums but cause 50 said you hate on him now you fucking followers. Grow up and think for yourselves. Now I see why they named that mixtape invasion of the bodie snatchers cause they stole your mind.

  • another thing

    Why does this magazine according to some need a certain person on the cover to sell copies? Are you saying that it can’t stand on its own as a respected publication? Do you need pictures of 50 for you gay fantasies? Shit I buy this mag dispite its cover most of the time.

    • Chaka

      My brother let us be true to ourselves,a magazine is what it is becos of the kind of news it reports.If a magazine is not puting out the kind of news that trills us we will not bother buying such magazine.Now a report on certain characters create more buzz than others.If you are such a character that create more buzz,then you have an 80% chance of making it to the front cover of magazines or newspapers whenever there is a gist about you.This not only helps the magazine to sell more copies but keeps it from going into extinction.Some of our beloved rappers are not that kind of characters that create enough buzz so we should not be mad that they are not making it to the front covers of magazines.Peace
