From lauded, chart-climbing albums to plenty of platinum plaques, Juice Wrld and Lil Baby have solidified themselves as success stories in their respective lanes since entering the game within the last two years. They’re both part of hip-hop’s new generation of heroes and celebrate with their own special cover for the Fall 2019 issue of XXL magazine.

Each artist graces the cover with beautiful portraits shot by photographer Ahmed Klink.
