ESPN Music Issue Photos

Yesterday, ESPN Magazine revealed its annual Music Issue cover stars and this year, there are three covers and 6 huge stars to grace it: Kobe & Nicki Minaj, Calvin Johnson & Eminem, and CP3 & Kendrick Lamar.

Today, ESPN releases all-new behind the scenes photos of all of the above, plus Skylar Grey & Hope Solo (who actually look like they can be sisters). Scroll through the gallery of 20 photos (all via ESPN with backstory captions) to view some real nice candids, with a couple of notable favorites: Kobe playing ping pong and the Calvin Johnson & Eminem overhead photo at the famous Shelter in Detroit.
