As the year winds down, Hip-Hop Wired will be here to catch you up on every damn thing you missed just in case you lived under a rock.
One of the things we will be looking back on is some of the best music magazine covers of the year. Although we are a digital publication, we've got mad love for print.
Between the pages of Complex, XXL, The Source, Vibe, FADER, RESPECT and more, we count down the twenty best paperbacks to drop in 2012.
After the links, check out the 20 best magazine covers of 2012 according to Hip-Hop Wired. Remember, don't just look at the pretty pictures. Reading is fundamental.
