The magazine’s editor, Vanessa Satten, visited The Breakfast Club to talk about the annual issue.
Satten was asked why Dex was omitted from the 2017 class.“There’s a lot of political issues right there that I’m not really sure how long it’ll take to clear up before you get to the next level,” she stated. “I would say [Dex assaulting a woman] was part of it. There’s a hurdle to get over there, and I don’t know if right now it’s going to happen.”
When the “Feelin Stupid” rapper heard the reasoning for not being selected, he decided to blast Satten in a video.
“That’s why I didn’t make XXL because of that video of my girl?” said Dex. “That f-cking lady right there. Ma’am, you’re too disrespectful.”
He added, “B-tch, she just had my son! F-ck you talking about! You fat b-tch!”
Apparently, Dex is still with the woman he was seen attacking, and the couple now have a child together.“You could’ve at least said congratulations in that interview, b-tch,” Famous Dex directed to Satten. “I don’t give a f-ck about no XXL.”
This year’s cover did feature A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Aminé, Kamaiyah, Kap G, Kyle, Madeintyo, Playboi Carti, PnB Rock, Ugly God, and XXXTentacion.
