Barbie and Ken Of Rap...

Young Money’s Nicki Minaj and Drake (Hip Hop’s Barbie & Ken :-p :-p :-p) grace the cover of the May 2010 Issue of XXL Magazine. A few outlets thought they were disrespecting the magazine when they turned down the Freshman 2010 cover (showcasing new up and comers) but according to Nicki, they’ve graduated from being Freshman.

"With all due respect, we felt like we kinda had graduated from the freshman class. We felt that XXL missed the mark when they didn’t put us on the cover prior to that. They have to pay for that. They can’t say, ‘Hey, get on the next one.’ But we love XXL. That’s like a hip-hop classic. So we said, ‘Can we have something just a little bit more catered to us, so that we feel like we have still grown as artists, so we’re not at all disrespecting the magazine?’ They were cool with that." -MTV
This issue of the magazine also includes investigative pieces on the struggles of female emcees and the death of the New York rap star. The issue hits stands on April 20th. In the meantime, here’s a few flicks from Nicki Minaj’s appearance on 106 and Park last night…
