In our second issue, we explore the next generation, selecting a handful of artists on the cusp of greatness. at theme will continue through Viper’s future issues as we showcase the game-changers of tomorrow. Our top musicians for Spring 2014 include Viper’s gorgeous cover star Kali Uchis, who has captivated every single person I’ve put onto her and is only just starting her career. She’s captured by Jabari MXXM Jacobs in a shoot organised and styled by Kali. Denzel Curry is another featured artist gathering momentum. He lets us into his nostalgic world, complete with a ll-the-blanks questionnaire. It-Boy of the moment Ian Connor broke down the ridiculousness of fame to us at the Little Lord Connor photo shoot, inspired by the book/ lm, Little Lord Fauntleroy. Skepta was a surprise guest on the day.
My favourite artist right now, SLVSTR, also appears, interviewed by Ashley Outrageous, who herself is pro led in the issue. SLVSTR also contributed our cover, his interpretation of the Kali Uchis photo by Jabari MXXM Jacobs. e Rap Pets feature is one of the highlights of the issue, as Pi Gang’s Milkavelli appears alongside his luxurious cat, Gadget. e rapper, also known as Don Silk, appears later in the Cash 4 Gold photo shoot alongside Jack Cannon.
Enjoy the Spring issue, we’ll be back in May with the Summer issue, exploring themes around sex. For more information on Viper, check the website, www.vipermag.com and twitter/instagram: @vipermagazine.
