NEW YORK, March 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sneaker News, the world's number one brand for the creators, curators, athletes and consumers driving global sneaker culture, unveils the highly touted Sneaker News Volume Three magazine, featuring a cover story with an elevated take on Snapchat mastermind, hip hop music mogul and inspiring entrepreneur, DJ Khaled.
"When we thought about who we wanted to grace the next volume of Sneaker News, we all unanimously said DJ Khaled," says Sneaker News Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Yu-Ming Wu. "No one is impacting culture with the unique social style and clever approach to art and business that Khaled is today."
"DJ Khaled discovered his keys to success with no one's permission but his own," says Sneaker News Executive Editor Steve Caputo. "He sets the tone for what we want this magazine to be—the industry standard for elevated design and storytelling—athletes, artists, writers and designers who disrupt the norm and change the rules."
In a rare and candid interview by Minya Oh, aka hip-hop's very own Miss Info, DJ Khaled reveals how he rose to success, his favorite sneaker obsessions and why he's laser focused on an Air Jordan collaboration.
"Every day, I work hard, and definitely one of my dreams is, and my goal is, to have a Khaled Jordan one day," says Khaled. "I already got the design in my head."
Interviewed and shot in Los Angeles, DJ Khaled also shines a light on how his social media skills have landed him everything from an Apple Music / Beats 1 radio show to a call from the White House to do a PSA for Barack Obama.
According to Khaled, "Imagine if Biggie Smalls had Snapchat or Instagram. Imagine if Tupac had Instagram or Twitter—you know how he was talking when he was alive. He was saying some revolutionary stuff."
Sneaker News Volume 3 features powerful subjects and contributors from every field, including reigning NBA MVP and champ Stephen Curry, interior designer Jim "The Furniture Pimp" Walrod (contributing editor of Apartamento Magazine), producer and sneaker designer DJ Clark Kent, legendary music photographer Janette Beckman (recently featured by the BBC), original Def Jam creative director turned fine artist Cey Adams, author and media maven Karen Civil, rapper/producer Chase N. Cashe, ItsTheReal's Eric and Jeff Rosenthal and a higher standard of design and storytelling than anyone covering culture today.
