With the Ali Vs. Frazier-esque Rolling Stone cover, the big hip hop showdown has come to its apex: Kanye and Curtis have, officially, milked this thing for all the publicity it’s worth. But fear not, there’s still some content to be drawn from this thing — like this behind-the-scenes vid from the RS shoot. They’re both pros about it, Curtis joking that ‘Ye’s just a prop in his photo shoot, that he’s prettier (how Ali), etc. But still, you know Kanyego was burning up just a little the entire time those cams were running. And Joe Levy’s like West’s personal Mickey Goldmill! Why doesn’t Mr. Cent get a corner guy? Probably ’cause Levy listened to Curtis.
