Issue: December 2001

From Flavor Flav's clock to Rick Ross' face, outrageous jewelry has long been a staple on the rap mag cover.

Hopefully his vaccines were in order. In case you're wondering why Team Canada never wore this colorway in a game, it's because when Nike proposed it, Wayne Gretzky said, "Canada doesn't wear black." If you're wondering why Ghost is rocking a Team Canada jersey, he reportedly only agreed to wear it if no copies of the magazine were shipped to the U.S.
