Kanye West has made the cover for the August edition of GQ Magazine. This is the second time he has been featured on the Magazine.
It’s The Roc! Kevin Powell is in the drivers seat for EBONY Magazine’s June issue celebrating Black Music Month with today’s legends, JAY Z, Beyonce, Rihanna and Kanye West. Powell said of penning the heavy feature, “It was an honor to write the four cover stories for EBONY magazine’s Black Music Month special collector’s edition, and to also pen the additional four mini-features inside. Rarely do you see today’s unstoppable stars like Beyoncé, Rihanna, Kanye West and Jay Z packaged with legends like Tina Turner, Donna Summer or Tupac Shakur, but we did it because when it comes to Black music, it is important to note the deep connection between the musicians of yesterday and today.”
Additional artists highlighted include Usher, Prince, Lauryn Hill and Mary J. Blige. The tribute continues as EBONY reveals the 10 music artists to watch – with Judith Hill, Childish Gambino and Lecrae on the list to name a few, the seven most epic battles in Black music and a guide to the best festivals, concerts and new music releases for the summer.
