Versus Magazine was my introduction to music journalism. Founded by my good friends Jonathon JB Bartlett and Konrad Ziemlewski, Versus was an independent publication with a unique vision to find common ground between cutting-edge design, and new music: Innovation being the underlying theme behind everything we looked for.
In the final issue of Versus, I was fortunate enough to be invited to contribute 3 articles. An opinion piece on white kids at rap shows (me included), an interview with Australian future-RnB trio Movement, and a rare piece of rap-fiction, as a look at Action Bronson’s humble beginnings as a shopping mall Santa Clause.
