      • maxamill

        t pain is not from miami he is from talahasse fl thats why

    • Devron Figgures

      A yo Rick Ross is one of the most verbal rappers coming out the south,but that nigga need to keep his damn shirt on don’t nobody want to see all that shit that nigga got titties. Another thing why the fuck is DJ Khali and Trina on the cover both them niggas are wack as fuck and if you think they are one of the best coming out he south you aren’t a rap listener. What the fuck is FloRida doing on the cover to he hasn’t put in enough work on the mainstream scene in order to get a cover. I mean real rap is dying hard with bitch ass shit like this and Ace hood is ass chicks

    Where in the hell is Trick Daddy and Plies!! You can’t do a Cover about the sunshine state without the Mayor of the 315 Trick DD, and the new goon Plies! I aint really feeling a lot of the music from down there but I respect it. With that said it seems like some hatin going on! Ross want to be considered the king of MIA but that’s Trick title, and the rest don’t want plies to get all the SHINE! Just my take on it!!!

    • LEGGZ617

      EXACTLY!!!

    • WANG

      co sign….where trick n plies?

      • Slick

        That cover should be trick by himself and fuck plies. That nigga is not a goon. He took that word from us ChiTown niggaz. He ain’t nothing but a punk ass caking ass whipped of the pussy fumes ass nigga. Plies is garbage. Word up I’m waiting for the middle coover

    • zoe up

      that would be the 305 not the 315 homie. t double d runs that this cover is a joke.

  • JP

    xxl…i really aint feeling that haha
    if you ask me T.I.P, young buck(even though he was on the g-unit cover), Jeezy, crooked I, Lupe, Luda(has he eva gotten a cover?) or even D-Block had more potential on making the cover

  • baldini

    khaled is trash and last time i checked hes from nawlins, what is he doin on this cover? oh yea….WE GLOBAL!!

  • Big T

    XXL was stupid to get rid of elliot wilson anyways,
    dj khaled is trash
    trina is trash
    flo rida is trash
    rick ross is the only real mutha fuka on the cover.

    Is it me or does Ric Ross looks like the old wrestler KAMALA!!!!!!!

  • Jamon

    How come no on says anything about the fat dude, judging by this cover I should probably clarify (Rick Ross), has a chain with his own face on it, let me say it again just in case, he has A CHAIN WITH HIS OWN FACE ON IT, I understand your label or even your name but he has his own face, have I gone crazy or does that ish seem a little bonkers?

  • A GENIUS

    I Just want to SAY the best thing about the cover is I wanna FUCK TRINA… Other than that, I’m good and WHY IS KHALED on this anyway aint he a DJ… HE DOESNT RAP… AND IF HE DID HE’D BE WHACK WORST THAN HE IS DJ… FLO-RIDA AINT SHIT, next year we’ll say WHO???… RICKY ROSS… AIIGHT I LIKE ROSS BUT PUT A SHIRT MAN ON FOR SOME REASON HE LOOKS LIKE A FAT SLOW KID, OFF THE SHORT BUS… BUT I WOULD FUCK TRINA EVEN THO HER RAPS AINT GREAT I’m SURE THE HEAD IS TIGHT.

  • King B

    Damn another bullshit ass cover

  • Shawty J

    Dear XXL, when doing a cover for your magazine, try using a cover that won’t make people throw up after seeing fat boy Rick “The Boss” Ross’ man boobs on the front. I mean sure Trina’s on the cover too, but her boot’s off to the side and Rick Ross’ keg of a gut is up front. What were you niggas thinking? This might be the first XXL I pass on in two years.

  • Dubb Montana

    This cover only needs Rick Ross, Trina & Plies…. hell u can even throw Fat Joe on the cover b4 Flo-Rida & DJ Khaled

    To DJ Khaled defense, he is like the one that is bridging the Gap between all Miami rappers. He is Miami’s own. Eventhoug he doesn’t f***ing play young buck (Bull shit)

    (does not intend for reader to actually kill themselves)

    although i doubt xxl magazine people read these comments especially the 59th i gotta say this cover is no good at all its got khaled who has no talent is famous for no reason and isn’t from florida Rick Ross who needs to put a shirt on or start doing sit ups and raps about the same 2 topics drugs and cars every-time and they all sound the same trina who sells her self on every record and is more famous for playing lil wayne and young buck and flo-rida who has a creative name but not creative music and is a nelly wanna be all these people on the cover suck and its florida t-pain should be on there he does his thing he started a movement by accident with that vocoder and trick daddy should also be on there since he is mia but i think since there going hood to hood it would have been more affective for them to get someone from each section that woulda been sick just the concept even if they picked the wrong artists.
