The cover stories focus on Diddy, Dr. Dre and Eminem. In “Table for One,” Diddy expresses his desire to be respected for changing the game, his beefs with 50 Cent and Martin Bashir and his ongoing legacy. Dr. Dre is profiled in “Andre Young is Still Buzzing,” as he gets ready to drop “Detox,” his first new CD in 10 years. In “Dying to Live,” Eminem talks about savoring success as a sober man and life after prescriptions.
“VIBE’s 15th Annual Juice Issue is a who’s who of all the influencers in today’s culture, from music to sports to fashion and philanthropy,” said VIBE Lifestyle Network Co-CEO and Chief Creative Officer Brett Wright.
“Diddy, Dre and Eminem are all at the top of their musical game and their influence on new artists is tangible,” commented Jermaine Hall, VIBE’s Editor-in-Chief.
The issue also features actor-model Mechad Brooks in a fall fashion spread; Mini’s take the road in Atlanta and a salute to trailblazer Grace Jones.
