Rap-Up Winter 08/09 Issue Uncovered

T.I. Cover Christina Milian Cover

We’re ringing in the New Year with a rapper who had 2008 on lock and a sexy siren poised to stage a musical comeback in 2009. T.I. and Christina Milian grace the double-sided cover of Rap-Up‘s Winter 08/09 issue with all-new photos and exclusive interviews. Inside this issue you’ll find…

T.I. reflects on the biggest year of his career, his impending jail sentence, the effect it will have on his family, and how the King always gets his way.
Christina Milian is back on her first magazine cover since parting ways with Island Def Jam in 2006. The diva breaks her silence on the emotional past two years, which superstar encouraged her comeback, her reaction to ex-boyfriend Nick Cannon’s marriage to Mariah Carey, and her brand new album. You won’t want to miss all the crazy, sexy, cool photos!
• Class is in session. Meet the new kids on the block–Wale, Shontelle, Charles Hamilton, Ryan Leslie, and Kid Sister–and find out why these funky five are too cool for school in our Class of 2009 package.
• Plus we go one-on-one with Brandy, Plies, Jennifer Hudson, Busta Rhymes, John Legend, Robin Thicke, Soulja Boy, Nina Sky, Teairra Marí­, Bobby Valentino, Maino, Jazmine Sullivan, and more!
