The hip-hop nation demands respect. Launching in November 2009, rap aficionados worldwide will finally get it— a magazine that doesn’t care about the latest beef or how much cash your favorite rapper has in the bank. With the print game changing and the ever-growing amount of free urban content on the Web, there is a need for a publication that raises the quality standard, delivering world-class editorial and images by some of the most celebrated photographers in pop culture. RESPECT magazine targets a sophisticated and intelligent reader, who desires a publication that speaks to them with class and visually has soul. The premiere is certain to be a hip-hop classic. Welcome to the new old school.
