My good friend & road dawg, Cindy Chu also known as Cindy Slick, had some of her original photo work featured in a literary publication aptly named, “Coon Bidness Magazine.” The mag is Harlem-based & covers writings, art, & politics, interestingly enough. Founder Greg Tate describes it as,
“Highbrow but raunchy. Classy but nasty. Charming but racy. Vulgar but impeccable. Tart but smart. Radical but tactical. Militant but pretty like a mutha.” source
Slick’s shot was taken place at Detroit’s own 5eGallery some time last winter for – I want to say – a J Dilla album release party. You see me applauding at the front of the row alongside my homegirls, Piper Carter, LaLa Trips, & Robyn Maria. Shortly after this shot, a Soul Train line took place.
Check Coon Bidness’ debut issue, “The Critical Ass Issue” at MagCloud. The cover image is indeed intriguing, so foul, yet amazing at the same time. I’m with it. To see more about it, visit the Coon Bidness Facebook page HERE.
