Hip hop turned 40 this year! In honor of this, XXL decided to pay tribute with five collector's edition covers. The covers feature hip hop's elite artist Jay Z, Snoop Dogg, LL Cool J, Outkast, and Lil Wayne. This is a pretty cool way to give back to hip hop, and who know's these covers might be worth something one day! XXL also pulled a list of 10 of the most important albums and songs dating all the way back to 1973.
Did they miss anyone?
