FADER #73 features personal accounts from the intern present during Big's first meeting with Tupac. Diddy talks about life after Big and there's a photo essay surveying how the most important landscapes in Biggie's life—his childhood home, the house he used to hustle from in North Carolina and the basement where he made his first demos—look like today. All that's in print, but if you grab the issue digitally from Zinio, you'll have access to lots of other exclusive treats. The digital version, formatted for sweet iPad/handheld/desktop viewing, features an exclusive video interview with legendary illustrator Seymour Chwast, who created the woodblock print back-cover portrait. There's behind the scenes videos from photographer Ian Baguskas' trip around the country to shoot the spots Big blew up, too. There's Zinio-only goodies from the rest of the mag, too— an interview with rabble-rouser Genesis P-Orridge, featured in the style section, and stream-able audio from the artists featured in this cycle of Gen F: Katy B, Planningtorock, About Group, Liturgy, Hauschka and Tity Boi. Even better: a yearlong digital subscription costs only $11.99! That's 60% off the newsstand price and good for trees.
