A$AP Rocky, French Montana Rep New York on XXL Magazine Cover
Two of New York’s hottest emcees — A$AP Rocky and French Montana — will both get cover shine on XXL magazine’s March/April Issue. Rocky and Frenchy hail from Harlem and the Bronx, respectively, and will share a joint cover, as well.
A$AP, the self-proclaimed “dat pretty motherf—er” shows off his gold fronts for his solo cover with the tagline “Young, Fly & Flashy.” On the other cover, Montana clasps his hands in prayer around three cuban-linked gold chains with the tagline, “Au Revoir to the Haters.” This also marks Montana’s second time on the publication’s front, after appearing last year as part of the XXL Freshman 2012 class.
The two are certainly Big Apple’s premiere rappers. Last month, A$AP Rocky’s first album, ‘Long.Live.A$AP,’ debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. In his interview with XXL, Rocky speaks candidly with Editor-In-Chief Vanessa Satten about the death of his father, who died on Christmas Eve 2012, and his parents’ love for hip-hop, which inspired him to become a rapper.
Meanwhile, the ‘Pop That’ rhyme-spitter talks to XXL about his new album, ‘Excuse My French,’ which, unfortunately, has been pushed back from its original April 16 release date to May 21. He also goes into details about being shot in the head and surviving that traumatic experience.
The March/April issue of XXL magazine, featuring Dat PMF and Coke Boy, will hit newsstands on Feb. 19.
