The April/May and 10th Anniversary issue of men’s lifestyle, fashion and entertainment guide for young men, Complex Magazine, which hits newsstands April 3, includes a cover story about the new Pepsi spokesperson Nicki Minaj.

The Nicki Minaj cover story, photos and video went online today at: http://www.complex.com/music/2012/03/nicki-minaj-10th-anniversary-covers . Justin Bieber is on the opposite cover.

The Complex Nicki Minaj interview and photo shoot include:

           *Video of Nicki’s interview: Nicki Minaj chats about what’s really important to her, the first time she appeared in Complex Magazine and other fun tidbits!

*A hot fashion spread with Nicki.

            *Nicki is a self-made mogul.  In six months she has performed at the Grammys, the Super Bowl halftime show with Madonna, will be launching her second album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, in early 2012, along with a nail polish collection, a Barbie Doll and a MAC cosmetics campaign.

            *The over-the-top performer is actually quite shy.  “I’m the biggest homebody.  I don’t know where that public craziness came from.”  “I hate cameras.”

*She is the brains behind the Nicki Minaj franchise.  “Your telling me that you don’t want control over a brand your creating.  I can’t rock with that theory.”  “I wanted to do what a label cannot do.”

Launched in 2002, Complex Magazine is a style guide and lifestyle publication for men with a circulation of 345,000; companion web site Complex.com reaches over 4.7 million every month.

In Tradition of that Good Ol’ BOOM BAP that we miss so much, comes the first Banger “Mirage” off the upcoming full length “The Sinister Theory” from the Dynamic Duo DJ Lord Ron & Wildelux. The BX to LA connect has a seamless chemistry that easily comes across to the listener as if they have been working together for years and years. Although this is true in a sense of having done work in the past, this upcoming project is their first full length together.

Murs presents "Gods Gone Crazy", the first exclusive track from Yumiko: Curse Of The Merch Girl, his album and graphic novel collaboration with Josh Blaylock. The album and novel unite to tell the story of Yumi Morales, a girl living the fabled tour life working the merchandise table for her boyfriend Dominick's band Murder Acts. The 124-page graphic novel is illustrated by Jose Garcia, written by Josh Blaylock and the ten-song album - whose lyrics are printed in their entirety throughout the novel - is produced entirely by DJ Foundation.

Yumiko is available only via the project's Kickstarter page, where a range of different pledge options will get you everything from the novel and CD to exclusive apparel, custom download cards illustrated by David Mack and Jim Mahfood, and a personal thank-you note and Twitter follow from Murs. Followed by the release of the album and book, an animated music video will officially be unveiled at Murs' party during the Comic-Con convention in San Diego. "Yumiko is hip hop and comics done correctly," says Murs of the project. "Comics have always been a huge inspiration to me. And having the chance to publish my own comic is truly an honor. Working with my partners to create this book was a lot of fun and we are looking forward to making our dream a reality with the help of the fans."
