What Kendrick Lamar Did: Appeared alongside TDE rappers Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock, and Ab-Soul on the cover of XXL with the cover line, "WITH KENDRICK LAMAR & BLACK HIPPY"
When He Did It: November 2013
Why It Was So Controversial: The GQ cover isn't the first magazine cover that Kendrick has appeared on this year and unwittingly caused some controversy. He also appeared alongside his fellow TDE rappers on an XXL cover recently. And his labelmates weren't too pleased with the fact that Kendrick got top billing on the cover while they were identified as "& BLACK HIPPY." Maybe Kendrick should just stay off magazine covers for awhile.
