Issue 54 split covers celebrate two scenes— blue-eyed soul and Brooklyn MCs—brought together as only Wax Poetics can.
Cover one features the poster boy for the blue-eyed-soul movement, Daryl Hall. Wax Poetics digs deep into the scene with features on Bobby Caldwell, Donald Fagen of Steely Dan, Laura Nyro, and Ned Doheny.
Cover two sports legendary Brooklyn MC and Juice Crew alum Big Daddy Kane, backed with new Brooklyn mic killer Joey Badass. And we venture farther back in time to speak with the elusive old school BK rapper Jimmy Spicer.
Also featuring crooner José James, Keyboard Kid, Nosaj Thing, Clams Casino, and the Ghetto Brothers.
