blame it on Meka December 16, 2014

Their first issue since nearly getting 86’d, the House of Harris Townsquare Media-owned XXL will debut its latest issue starring Kendrick Lamar.

Still in writer mode, Kendrick crafted his own story for XXL titled Writer At War, where he explores his experience with his extraordinary fame, the impact he has had on his fans (and vice versa), the process in which he records, his overall mind state after two years on the road and so much more.

In addition to Kendrick’s story, this issue of XXL features articles on several artists who did it big in 2014, including YG, French Montana, Big Sean and E-40. There’s also a last minute holiday gift guide for struggling shoppers.


The issue is available on newsstands now. Peep a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the cover below.
