Suge Knight’s favorite rapper, YG, appears on our second cover. In a chat with Christina Lee, YG talked about his upcoming album, the importance of karma, and the Ferrari he plans to buy as a reward for completing “Pray For Me.”

“You know the saying, ‘What happens comes back,’ like karma?” said YG. “I think it’s a sign from God. Because every human knows that if you put in bad shit, you get bad shit back. You do good shit, good will come back.”

After more than two decades as a band, Mastodon continues to innovate with each subsequent album. Brann Dailor and Bill Kelliher spoke to us about the band’s eighth studio album, “Hushed and Grim,” and how it all came together during an emotionally intense time.

“It’s a record about grief,” Kelliher explains. “That was the mindset we were in after our manager [passed]. I don’t write the lyrics but I write most of the music, and it was the mood I was in that put those riffs in my fingertips.”

Jenna Romaine spoke to rapper Vic Mensa about how he is a man of two very different worlds – Ghana and Chicago – and how that made him the person he is today.

“I’m obviously a hip-hop artist but I’m very inspired by rock n’ roll music, I’m inspired by punk music, I’m inspired by African music, afrobeat music and highlife music (which started in Ghana in the late 19th century),” Mensa says. “I like the alternative, I’m inspired by soul. I listen to everything. I’m a music student and I’m an art student.”

Salice Rose was in a dark place when she first took to social media. She was looking for an escape and she ended up finding a whole new purpose. Rose is one of the funniest women on TikTok and she kept us laughing throughout our interview.

“It all started as pure fun,” she says. “And then I blinked and ended up building an empire. Now I’m just doing what I can and taking care of a lot of people in my family. I never thought I could do this, so I’m super blessed and grateful that the universe and God gave me this experience.”

In our interview with Inuk throat singer and TikTok sensation, Shina Novalinga talks to us about her entry into the mainstream art form, its virality, and the honor of having her tunniit (traditional facial tattoos).

“There are a lot of people who have tunniit and I wanted to encourage young Inuit who want to get their marks because there are so many deep meanings behind them,” she explains. “Before getting tattooed, I drew the marks on my face to see how I liked them and if I would be comfortable going out in public with them. I noticed that it made a lot of people uncomfortable. comfortable and that’s when I knew I was really I wanted to do them. It’s breaking down barriers and it’s so powerful to live that way.

Inside the issue you’ll also find a roundup of Natalie Cuomo’s motorcycle gear, a one-on-one on sneaker culture and tattoos with BJ Betts and Frank Cooke, profiles of some of the coolest tattoo artists working today and many, many Suite.
