XXL's December '98 issue, "The Greatest Day in Hip-Hop History"

The unforgettable cover to XXL magazine's December 1998 issue was a hip hop recreation of "A Great Day in Harlem," the classic Art Kane 1958 photograph of jazz greats assembled in front of a Harlem brownstone. XXL's take featured dozens of rap luminaries old school and new, from Q-Tip to Luke to Kool Herc.
