50 Cent Gets FIVE XXL Covers!
There is a such thing as OVERKILL [Just ask the N.Y.P.D.]. XXL went above and beyond the call of duty by granting 50 Cent not 1, not 2, not 3 or even 4, but FIVE different covers for their new edition. Sheesh. What matches, or even surpasses, that absurdity are the actual pictures themselves. #Comedy This is how you do?
This shit is cray... But, the reasoning behind giving 50 five covers is to celebrate his 5th album [that's funny because we only remember Get Rich Or Die Trying]. The issues drop December 6th and if you cop all 5 as collector's items, 50 WILL not feed a kid in Africa.Not wanting to spend too much time on this, we'll let XXL take it away with what you can expect in the December/january issue:
"In the cover story, 50 analyzes the current music climate: “I don’t see what I fell in love with,” he says. “So now I gotta make music that reflects what N.W.A made. I have to make music that has the moments that Nas had. I have to make music that has what Biggie offered.” He also discusses his currently untitled fifth solo album: “For me, I’m still up against what I’ve done,” he says. “So in order to top it, I know it’s a difficult task. You know, I see the bloggers. My audience hasn’t grown with me. They keep saying, “Aw, man, I want the old 50!” ’Cause those people, it would take them on a safari. I was bringing them close enough to the animals, without being able to get hurt. I was taking them into my neighborhood, where you can very well get your ass killed.”
In addition Fif talks Hollywood, feeding kids in Africa through Street King and much more. And 50 and Floyd break down their crew: The Money Team. “The Money Team is money, is power and is respect,” Floyd says. “It’s a lot of us. The team is, The Money Team is worldwide, and it’s growing. It’s growing each day.”
