Last week, hip-hop fans we’re shocked to learn the fate of hip-hop’s most prestigious publication XXL Magazine. After 17 years of countless classic cover stories, XXL will be shutting down its print edition of the magazine due to the publication being bought out by Townsquare Media. Instead XXL will be going strictly digital.
But prior to this major move, XXL will release its final print issue for October/November featuring 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, Young Buck & Kidd Kidd as the newly reunited G-Unit gracing its last cover in fitting fashion. The final issue will also profile Raury, Bobby Shmurda & more & will be released in newsstands October 17. Check out the cover below #LongLiveXXL
