As an obvious fit, XXL granted Gucci Mane and Young Thug the latest cover of their magazine. Both Wop and Thugger sat down with the squad for video interviews that are set to hit the ‘Net next week. For now, let your eyes gaze on a few flicks of the mentor and protege team after the jump.
For the new issue, the two artists both sat with XXL to talk about their journeys to stardom—including some of the bumps they have hit along the way—their history with each other, thoughts on the current hip-hop landscape and personal focuses for the future. Gucci, who has been somewhat absent from hip-hop for the past three-plus years, due to a federal prison bid, also discusses his life before the jail sentence and what he had to do to change himself and succeed when he got out. Thug, who has found comfort in the world of fashion, also talks about how that fits in his budding career and what it means for himself and hip-hop.
Also in the issue are special stories on Lil’ Kim’s 20th anniversary of her debut album, Hard Core, and a look back at the first days of Kim and Foxy Brown. Plus, XXL catches up with hit maker Rich Homie Quan, new jocks Young M.A, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and Cousin Stizz and much more.
