KING’s 50 Greatest Hits
Weâ€™ve photographed many women over the last seven years. Weâ€™re taking a stand, proclaiming these 50 pics the best of the bunch. Disagree? Let us hear it.
Datwon Thomas, KING editorial director, says: â€œBehold the cover shot that started it all. KINGâ€™s then senior editor Ben Osborne (now SLAM magazineâ€™s E.I.C.) pretty much made this cover happen. I was debating between Leila Arcieri and another cutie with a bootylicious frame, and Ben chimed in, â€˜You know sheâ€™s the one.â€™ A few days later I was in L.A. watching Leila crawl on the floor, then handcuffed to a pole, then blowing kisses to the cameraâ€”making me a believer in the future of KING magazine.â€
What were your thoughts when you saw Gabrielle Union on the cover of KING?
Busta Rhymes: â€œShe looked banginâ€™ than a motherfucker.â€ My second response: â€œLet me look inside to see how many more of those beautiful images I can see.â€
Can we get a â€œWoo-hahâ€?
Iâ€™m a big fan. Iâ€™m not even gonna front.
Is that why you picked her to co-star in your video â€œI Love My Chickâ€?
I picked Gabrielle because every time I look at her I appreciate her beauty in different ways. I always wanted to get close enough to vibe with her.
