CASSIUS Releases June Digital Cover ‘The First Supper’ featuring “30 Unapologetics”

On the heels of its inaugural “Culture Vultures” digital cover, CASSIUS — the latest brand from iONE Digital (formerly Interactive One) and the definitive digital destination for urban millennials – has announced its June 2017 cover: The First Supper.

‘The First Supper,’ a graphic illustration featuring 30 of the most talked-about, controversial figures in pop culture and American history, is divided into four covers featuring distinct groups of ‘Unapologetics’-cultural disruptors as they are known in the CASSIUS world. The series features critical essays penned by CASSIUS top editors and on video, extended conversation about the covers’ ultimate message and the sheer power of its many subjects.

The June cover is in keeping with CASSIUS’ mission to cut through today’s headlines with stories and critical commentary that are relevant to millennials and directly address the global impact of Black culture. Each month, CASSIUS will create original covers underscoring their unique point of view on themes such as power, identity, and race. Video content will accompany each cover.

“This month, we wanted to nod to ‘The Unapologetics’ of then and now,” says CASSIUS creator Kierna Mayo, SVP, Content and Brands at iONE Digital. “We determined that people throughout time who change the world and never apologize for it, fall into fascinating sub-categories worthy of exploration. Deciding which ‘disciples’ should have a seat at the ‘First Supper’ table was hotly debated in our office. The truth is, the world is filled with ‘Unapologetics’ -fearless individuals who push us to think differently and for everyone depicted, there was also the case for someone else. We hope our audience has the same endless discussion we did. Who really moves culture forward?”

The June cover art was illustrated by Mark Hammermeister.

At a time when mainstream media is dominated by political theater and extreme narratives, CASSIUS provides readers with a rare lens that positions Black culture as central to the world’s key issues.

Cadillac and The Coca-Cola Company are the proud launch partners of CASSIUS.

Fly News: Tyler, the Creator Lands TV Show On Viceland

Tyler, the Creator is making his return to the silver screen.

The Odd Future MC has joined forces with VICELAND for a late-night program that draws inspiration from his Golf Media app.

This will be Tyler’s second foray in television. His bizarre sketch comedy show Loiter Squad debuted on Adult Swim in 2012 and lasted for three seasons. At the moment details regarding the new series are scarce, but we do know it is set to air during Viceland’s next programming block.

Tyler will be joining emcee Action Bronson on the 24-hour cable channel. Bronson currently stars in two shows: Fuck That’s Delicious and Action Bronson & Friends Watch Ancient Aliens, which recently featured the Goblin rapper as a guest. Tyler also recently sat down with Afropunk to discuss the demise of his brash Twitter handle @f*cktyler.

Check out his appearance on Action Bronson & Friends Watch Ancient Aliens and his chat with AP below.
