With YMCMB’s artist Drake recently gracing the cover of GQ’s April issue, the Passport Paper team decided to do a little research. GQ has been the premier men’s magazine for over 50 years and has featured plenty of top athletes, models, actors, and entertainers. With the genre of hip hop only being born in the late 70′s and early 80′s it’s no surprise that a rapper wasn’t seen on a cover til many years down the line. By now we know that rap music is more than a fad and even “gentlemen” like to listen to Rick Ross every once in a while. If you don’t see a rapper on the cover then I can guarantee you there’s an article inside that’s involving one. So it seems rap has become more than music and evolved into an undeniable lifestyle. Check out the brief history of “GQ” Rappers after the jump.
