The "Beats Revolution" takes top billing on the April/May issue of XXL magazine.

Dr. Dre, Jimmy Iovine and Eminem cover the magazine's latest edition in honor of the newly launched Beats Music streaming platform. The issue, which is out next month, is the first time that all three music giants have appeared on the magazine together. 

Inside, Dre, Em and Iovine discuss ushering in one of music's most popular audio empires and the "impact they have on music of all genres though the Beats brand." The cover story also points out how Beats Music could potentially "change the way fans consume their music."  

Dre and Iovine founded Beats Electronics in 2008 with their first product, the Beats by Dr. Dre Studio headphones. Six years after audio accessory shook up the consumer listening experience, the line has expanded to feature various headphones, earbuds and speakers, including the Beats Pill, a wireless mini-speaker. Today, Beats Electronics is valued at more than $1 billion

Aside from all things Beats, XXL's spring edition features stories on rapper ScHoolBoy Q's highly anticipated Oxymoron LP and super producer Hit-Boy discussing his HS87 imprint. 

The issue hits stands March 11.
