If you're a rapper, what's better than being on the cover of XXL? Um, yeah, not much, actually. Well, maybe being the centerpiece of a mural and still being around to appreciate it -- that has to come pretty close, right? Ask Mane Rok and Es-Nine, whose mugs were recently immortalized on the side of this rail car by a pair of industrious local graffiti artists (Duble and Kovet). Though we haven't gotten our hands on a copy yet, in the case of life imitating art or whatever, the rapper and producer have evidently included a shot of the mural in the foldout of the physical version of their album.
