Stress Magazine #3 Jay-Z Cover

Stress Magazine JayZ CoverI haven’t fully looked into it, but this issue is significant because it is one of his first magazine covers if not THE first with Jay-Z on the cover. This issue came out before he dropped Reasonable Doubt. There is a nice article and photo of the Duck Down family with Buckshot, Heltah Skeltah, Smif N Wessun, OGC, and of course Buckshot.

I love reading what people say about the future and sometimes they are spot on. Props to Graff Legend Mare 139 who spoke on technology and the internet saying” An emerging technology like the internet blasts open the doors of the informationally privileged. Information that was once inaccessible can now in minutes be grabbed by anyone from anywhere in the world. All this will open minds and bring worlds closer than ever before.” Yes youngsters, the internet hasn’t always been around.

Here is a first for me to see in a magazine, some mean mugging looking brotha’s  with dogs in the ad and reads “Stronghold, Always on point Security, Armed and unarmed guards, body guards, escorts, K-9 Crowd Control, Affordable Excellence”

Beat Down Magazine #6 : Erick Sermon & Fat Joe Cover

Love Erick Sermon on the cover, don’t really care for Fat Joe. Great advertisement for The Fab 5 Let The Madness Begin, O.G.C. and Heltah Skeltha. Article on the Pharcyde and Def Jam. RBX tells of his “escape” from Death Row.
