Even in a year of significant upheaval and chaos, there’s a lot to appreciate. This Thanksgiving, we continued our annual tradition of asking members of the FADER family what they appreciated most this year. A$AP Ferg gave love to one of his biggest idols, Alessia Cara took time to evaluate her recent success, and Kranium kept it simple and sweet. Here’s to more success. *clinks glasses*

A$AP Ferg
I’m thankful for Jay Z, because he showed us we could be entrepreneurs—more than just young artists. He told us to own our artistry and push the culture forward.

by @Djordje

The slowed samples and house party vibes of Bompton rapper Jay Worthy and Vancouver producer Sean House might conjure G-Funk classics of old, but this ain’t a DeLorean on Daytons. Mentored by the late A$AP Yams, LNDN DRGS have pulled from generations of game to make modern day slaps all their own. Roller rink basslines, low riding flows, crucial, um, “dating advice”… this is LNDN DRGS raw and uncut, welcoming everyone to the function.

A$AP Rocky Covers Johnson Magazine: Issue 001

by @Djordje

johnson-magazine-00

Rob Meyers, editor-in-chief of Johnson, voices an understanding of today’s culture that no one else is really talking about. On how today’s modern man can be described, Meyers says, ““Everyday it feels like our lives are a constant mixture of high brow and low brow culture. No guy wears head to toe designer clothing, he mixes high fashion with street wear and a bit of vintage…This publication stands to represent both ends of the cultural thread that makes the modern man.”

Inspired by a progressive and pragmatic view of a contemporary fashion environment, Johnson caters to what is historically known as a very broad category: the men’s magazine. On the inspiration behind the new project, Meyers adds, “Johnson is not engineered for any particular social background, cultural association or sexual orientation. It’s inspired by every minute channel of modern life in its truest form: from the city-skipping fashion editor to the working class guy.” For its inaugural issue, the publication features a wide range of topics that include style, music, cars, food and interiors, tapping the likes of Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky and gender-defying designer J.W. Anderson. Issue 001 will be released internationally this week. You can check out a preview of the A$AP Rocky feature above, and don’t forget to follow Johnson on Instagram to stay updated.
