Large Professor feature – XXL (March 2002)

Noah Callahan-Bever, who use to write/edit most notably for Ego Trip and later for Complex, put a website of his own as a showcase/archive of his work.  Some really great articles are feature there. One in particular is about LP.  It starts from his origins in the game to why he left the  public life towards the end of the 90’s.  Ever wonder about that Jay-Z line from the Takeover where Jay-Z mentions “on tour with Large Professor…with the tech on the dresser”? Well, its explained here.  Look for the feature after the jump:

Duqie aka Charles Hamilton has managed to mess up his career way better than someone could’ve planned.  Complex has done us the favor of compiling, formating, and listing all of Charles Hamilton’s fails over the last 12 months.  Its too good for me to copy and paste.  Just go there to see for yourself.  I’m still laughing…

Olivia Munn – Halloween Complex Photos

My favorite G4 host, Olivia Munn, has blessed us this year with a dress-up/role-play photo session with Complex for Halloween.  Please take the time to appreciate her hard work.  Not many girls can chnage from an In-N-Out Burger girl, Librarian, a Bunny, and Chun-Li.  All the photos can be seen here.  After the jump is a behind the scenes video of the photo shot.  Thanks to the homies at WMF for the heads-up.

No such thing as Hip-Hop Journalism

Rafi Kim of Oh Word fame puts Complex, the LA Times, and a slew of others on blast for their lack of skill, integrity, and fearlessness.

I will put his whole piece here for you to read b/c we are lazy but please take a moment and visit Oh Word to co-sign with a comment.
