Boss Status Magazine #1 : Malika Cover

As described by the Editor of the magazine, it was very groundbreaking to put a girl rapper on our debut issue. Malika was featured on P.Diddy’s making the band. Since it is a Network Guide to the bay, it is light on the articles but heavy on advertisements and contacts.

Independent magazine in full color with West Coast Mixtape Kings on the cover. A lot of Bay area flavor in this issue with The Federation, Deebo, and a full two pages of all of Mac Dre’s albums. Last, there is a hot rapper named Crystal in lingerie on train tracks??
