Cover Battle: Rolling Stone or XXL

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This week we have two music-centric magazines — Rolling Stone and XXL — duking it out. Rolling Stone went with a photo of Jon Hamm as his Mad Men character Don Draper, who is actually Dick Whitman. If that’s a spoiler you need to watch more TV.

XXL’s cover features its annual “freshman class,” which is supposed to be a group of unknown, up-and-coming rappers, but always ends up being a collection of rappers everyone has known about for about three to five years.

So readers, which cover is better? You can vote, comment, or do both.
