1. how can you not love a magazine blog that posts this picture every time they mention Outkast?
or inexplicably creates collages like this
2. they regularly, rather exclusively, post greatness like this:
The Rub’s History of Hip Hop: The Year 2000
complete with a link for the download
3. they always know bout all that new new, be it style, music, art, events, all that. they’re on it, the best of it, and uasually before it even officially happens.
and 4 (yeah i know i said 3 reasons). in the 4+ years ive been a reader, i’ve learned a lot from the FADER. mucho gusto suckaaaassss.
