ESPN Magazine’s music issue is right around the corner and there will be three featured covers. All three feature rappers, two NBA players and one NFL player.
One is an all Detroit mash-up with Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson. The other is a Los Angeles themed one with Los Angeles Clippers guard Chris Paul and Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar. The third one has a less obvious theme and features Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant and Queens rapper Nicki Minaj.
Don’t see the connection there.
Still, it looks like an exciting issue. The magazines will hit newsstands on Friday for those looking to grab a copy. The headline on the cover also teases an article about Janet Jackson’s famous Super Bowl wardrobe malfunction.
