If that isn’t a hot cover, I don’t know what is!

For its 10th anniversary “Music & Style” issue, rapper Common and sexy model Selita Ebanks are heating things up on the September 2014 cover.

Common , who just released his 10th album talks to Uptown’s Ericka Blount Danois about his album, his sex-symbol status, his love for Serena Williams, how “not awkward” it was posing with Selita who is Serena’s bestie, and how he still feels like a new artist.

Speaking on his sex-symbol status, Common said – “It’s not what I reach for, but I like women, so I’m not running away from it.” “But I’m not running out saying, ‘Hey let me get my eyebrows arched’ or whatever sex symbols do.

    And as usual the man is fully clothed whilst the woman isn’t. Typical magazine cover.

    I don’t appreciate why she would be barely clothed in the shoot. Highly unnecessary and sends the wrong message. Women need to hold themselves up to higher standards…..
