At the end of every year, The FADER's annual Now Issue looks forward. This year, cover star Zayn Malik gave his first interview since quitting One Direction, explaining why he left and who he is now. In Los Angeles, YG opened up about the evolving sound of California rap, and a recent attempt made on his life. Other stories introduce 10 creatives who'll define 2016, uncover how corporations benefit from black teens' viral content, and follow the journeys of refugees.
