Watch hip-hop veteran Elliott Wilson discuss his new book project HRDCVR with HOT97’s Morning show in this brand new interview. Previously, Hip-Hop Wired caught up with Wilson to get more details on HRDCVR, and to find out what readers can expect from the veteran journalists.
“We want HRDCVR to have an impact. When someone picks up the book, and sees that some issues will have an actual hardcover, we want them to walk away impressed with that,” said Wilson. Wilson added, “Picking up a magazine, it’s mostly ads and little content. We want HRDCVR to be something you want to collect, put on your coffee table, you want to get on Instagram and social media to show the world you have a copy of this great and fresh product.
“We’re trying to create a moment. Along with Danyel, we’ve created magazines and movements in the past that thankfully gave people that moment. That’s what we’re aiming for with HRDCVR.” Wilson and Smith hope to raise $150,000 to fund the HRDCVR project. Smith, currently a John S. Knight Journalism Fellow at Stanford University, has enlisted the assistance of her academic colleagues on the project as well.
