CrayonBeats Magazine Issue 5!

Hey everyone! We have made it into our second year with our magazine, and today we have released our fifth issue! To celebrate another year, we have returned with another double-cover special (different colors, same exact content in both). On cover choice features hip hop duo The Cloaks (Awol One and Gel Roc), where I have an exclusive interview with them about music, their forthcoming album, and what’s next. The other cover choice features R&B/Pop singer Emi Maria, where Tiffny has an exclusive interview with her about family life, her return to the music scene, and her new album.

MUSIC: This issue is loaded with music interviews, reviews, and spotlights. You’ll find spotlights and album reviews with various artists (including our Did You Hear This/That album suggestions); an in-depth interview with international artist Sonny_B; soundcheck articles with Hanzo Reiza, Us Natives, and Kuroioto; an article where Uncommon Nasa talks about two songs from his album Land of the Way It Is; and more.

FASHION: As far as fashion goes, there is a beautiful spread and interview with rapper Hopie (previously known as Hopie Spitshard). There is also an interview with Nima Fadavi, regarding the Fadavi and Co. Holiday 2013 collection.

ART / ETC: You’ll find interviews with shoe painter/artist Elom Bowman of Ecentrik Artistry, illustrator Alfonso Elola, and of course our standing 4 Questions article featuring mini Q&A’s with artists Ashley Allen and Yoko d’Holbachie. There is also a home improvement section where you’ll find some dope pieces that you might want to own.

Now that I’ve said all of that, go ahead and read/download either issue for free! Remember, although they have different covers, the content in each magazine is exactly the same. We hope you enjoy! Don’t hesitate to give us your feedback in the comment section of this post or through Facebook or Twitter. Share with your friends!

I hate writing bios about myself, so see ya.
