The features section takes inspiration from Nas’ epic discography with every story named after a seminal song. Beyond the high-gloss cover lies an illustrated spread featuring ‘Songs To Read By’, a customised mixtape of Nas tunes that readers can access via Spotify and listen to as they flick through the mag. The cassette-tape trail then weaves on throughout the issue, with spools of glossy black tape spilling over from page to page.
Elsewhere this issue: we question the potent power wielded by the ‘N’ word and explore the history of the world’s greatest taboo; three-times World Champion surfer Stephanie Gilmore lets us hang out in her world for a full week; and the back section gets an editorial takeover courtesy of Take The Stage, a digi-zine founded by Ed Andrews that celebrates the everyday folk who inhabit the world of beats and rhymes.
Huck is now available digitally on Zinio.
