For me The Source is the #1 hip hop magazine. They employ a better class of writer and do full research on their topics, before they put pen to paper. XXL goes overboard in trying to be too ghetto, and Eliott Wilson's editorials at the opening of the magazine have me bowing my head with embarrassment each month.

1) TheFader- whenever they have a blown out hiphop section, its on point.
2) Scratch- true to the music without all the hype and bling bullshit.
3) Elemental- one of the few magazines that recognizes indie hiphop and puts upcoming artists in the spotlight.
4) Vibe, XXL- for whenever i need to catch up on mainstream tip.

yo i like how you put "auto" in quotes like that-50 is a sucka. but anyway Hashim i want yto holla @you about something-and i couldnt figure out ya email-get back at me at mine


WHA!...you saying "XXL" is the #1 HIP-HOP MAGAZINE???
Is that a JOKE???

XXL is not even Hip-Hop!
IT'Z motha-fuckin' RAP sheit!

1) All they cover in there is BLACK artists I've noticed.
I'm not a racist but it's just another one of those A-A outlets

2) What about GRAFFITTI?? DJING? EMCEEING (REAL emceeing, not rap)???

3) There is a difference between RAP and HIP-HOP, and that ain't no HIP-HOP!

THIS SHIT IS FUNNY!!!!: (read this -->);
Why is it that everytime I flip through an "XXL", I never see nobody smiling!!! Everyone has that pose where they look up and not smile! LOL!! (just thought that was funny!!!!)
***I actually looked through 4-5 other XXL mag issues just to see if I can fnd ANYONE smiling,......NOPE!!!
(great message your sending out guyz, lol!)

Look!; I've been in-tuned into this culture way too long to be fooled by "XXL". I'm a educated mixed-raced HIP-HOP enthusiast and I've GRAFF'ed for 6+ years, BBOY'ed for 5+ years, DJing 7+ years and still going on strong.

All I can say is,....XXL can't fool me!
If I really want to be in-tuned with what'z with hip-hop, honestly I'll buy like "FADER", "ELEMENTAL', or "URB" is pretty nice too.

I'd buy "XXL" if I was wanting to know what brain-washng scheme the media would like for people to like.
...hip-hop is an underground culture. If you are part of the masses, how can call yourself hip-hop?
