These 20 covers highlight rap's young bloods and seasoned vets. Famed photographer Travis Shinn—you may know his work from XXL's past two Freshmen covers—shot the 20th anniversary covers over the course of four months in four different cities and aimed to capture what makes each artist special within the history of hip-hop.
Celebrating 20 years wouldn’t be complete without these artists: 50 Cent, the cover king with 15 total XXL covers and a career we’ve been documenting from the start; Nicki Minaj, a queen in hip-hop building her own pinkprint in the game; Diddy, the man who not only reinvented the remix but paved the way for rap moguls; Wiz Khalifa, the cool, calm and collected superstar; Cam'ron, Harlem's swag connoisseur; Lil Uzi Vert; the face of hip-hop’s new generation; Migos, three rappers who helped redefine the culture; Snoop Dogg, the Doggfather of the game; Pusha T, a success story as a group member, solo artist and record executive; Future, a trendsetting trap god; T.I., rap’s gangsta and gentleman; Fabolous, a highly respected New York MC; Rae Sremmurd, the real crowd-pleasers; Birdman, a No. 1 stunna with a revered empire; Run The Jewels, partners in rhyme and reason; Yo Gotti, a testament to tenacity; Gucci Mane, the true comeback kid; Tech N9ne; an independent icon; E-40; hip-hop’s in-the-know uncle; and The Lox, a trinity representing for the streets.
Like the 20th anniversary cover stars, XXL as a brand and outlet has done its best to rep the culture and put hip-hop on a higher level since day one. Whether it was scoring the first interview with Shyne once he got out of jail, speaking with Tupac Shakur's mother on the legacy of her son, documenting G-Unit's demise and reunion or predicting rap's next super stars with the XXL Freshman franchise, XXL has held rap fans down since 1997 and will continue to do so as long as we can. But for right now, it's time to celebrate.
Enter for your chance at winning a piece of hip-hop history today and celebrate XXL’s double decades of dominance when the 20 covers hit newsstands everywhere on Oct. 17 and before at XXLMag.com here.
