Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock cover XXL magazine

With Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock and Ab-Soul plus newest additions Isaiah Rashad and SZA, Top Dawg Entertainment has proven already that it’s the illest crew in hip-hop right now, and it’s all just begun.

TDE’s Black Hippy group appears on the cover of the October/November issue of XXL with a special photo shoot by Jonathan Mannion and story by kris ex, which explores the fast-growing success of TDE as a label and the careers of the individual artists.

Inside the issue, XXL celebrates the 10th anniversary of hip-hop’s biggest-selling album, OutKast’s Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, by discussing the impact and influence of the critically acclaimed project with both Andre 3000 and Big Boi. The famed Atlanta MCs also weigh in on their LP Aquemini, which celebrated its 15th anniversary September 29.

Also in the mag, Big Sean reflects on his most recent project, Hall Of Fame, and what he’s got up next, Chance The Rapper dissects his guest verse on “You Song” from Lil Wayne’s Dedication 5 mixtape, Yo Gotti gets his first big XXL story, and Jeff Weiss takes a provocative look at the media’s continued obsession with labeling current hip-hop as violent.
