Since this year's Summer Music Issue had four covers instead of the usual two, we knew we needed a blockbuster release party to go along with it. So, we headed to North Williamsburg and got cozy inside Kinfolk's new geodesic dome-inspired party space, which was also a featured environment in the new issue. Budweiser, as always, stocked the bar; we sipped on cold ones during an expectedly great DJ set from Popcaan collaborator Dubbel Dutch (that Taylor Swift cover he dropped, daaaamn). Later on, F92 cover star Ty Dolla $ign rolled through to serenade us while wearing an unzipped black hoodie with no T-shirt underneath. Behind him, photographs from the issue—of Ty, of Lana Del Rey, of Sam Smith, of Popcaan—were projected onto a white wall, an appropriately big surface for four larger-than-life stories.
