Hip-Hop is officially over the hill. It’s been 40 years since DJ Kool Herc borrowed his dad’s turntables and birthed the sound of a generation at a block party in the South Bronx, and to commemorate the big 4-0, in what has been a banner year for the culture, XXL Magazine will be releasing their year end issue with 5 special commemorative covers featuring classic images of Jay Z, Outkast, Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, and LL Cool J.

The issue will also feature the 10 most important songs and albums from each year as well as stories on Nipsey Hussle, Bun B, and Karen Civil. Check out each cover below and grab all 5 when the issue hits newsstands later this month.
