Every year ESPN Magazine releases its hot Music Issue. The cover always features one of the hottest athletes partnered with some of the day’s hottest music stars around. This year, the Barbie covers the mag with the Black Mamaba. Urban pop singer Nicki Minaj can be seen on the cover of ESPN Magazine’s music issue with Los Angeles Laker Kobe Bryant.
The magazine also split the covers so there are three different covers to choose from. You can scoop up the Nicki Minaj and Kobe Bryant cover or you can grab the cover featuring Eminem and NFL star Calvin Johnson. If the Eminem cover doesn’t suit your fancy, Kendrick Lamar graces another cover with Chris Paul.
Inside the mag, 14 athletes dress as their favorite musicians and give playlists of their favorite songs to work out to and the songs that amp them up before they step onto their respective fields.
Check out the covers below.
