    Action Figure!

    Presenting our third annual Pretty Young Things issue. You’ll want to play with these dolls.

    Hitting newsstands on September 2nd, it’s KING’S Pretty Young Things Issue, Vol. 3

    The KING Gentleman’s Guide
    “50 RULES TO BEING A GENTLEMAN ACCORDING TO SOME CLASSY DUDES”

    In the game of life, fellas with undeveloped refinement will ultimately get benched. For chaps who split bills on fast-food dates, KING offers a template for improved sophistication. Relax and take notes.

    KING Legacy Q&A
    “SPIKE LEE”

    Twenty years in, Spike Lee is still black Hollywood’s most controversial and celebrated filmmaker. Continuing KING’s Legacy series, Mr. Do the Right Thing discusses his new racially motivated war epic, Alicia Keys, Wesley Snipes and Tinseltown’s broken promises.

    Nikki “Hoopz” Alexander
    “NICE BALLOONS!”

    Dumping her Cupid quest for the paper chase, I Love Money’s Nikki “Hoopz” Alexander mashes out on the press, addresses rumors and talks real love.

    Teairra Marí
    “ROC & ROLL”

    Reborn with an ink-still-wet label deal, amplified sexiness and candidness about Jay-Z and Rihanna, Teairra Marí is once again ready to show you what she’s got. Can she get an encore?

    Kat DeLuna
    “DELICIOUS VINYL”

    With J.Lo and Shakira on leaves of absence, Kat DeLuna has taken pop’s Latina, hip-shaking reins. Now all she needs is an equally limber dance enthusiast open to private lessons. Step up!

    NFL Roundtable
    “BIG LEAGUE PROBLEMS”

    Watching from the stands, the NFL is as exciting as ever. But behind the face mask, issues such as shaky contract policies and skewed salaries weigh heavily. Digging in like cleats, KING assembled a panel of pigskin professionals to tackle the league’s most pressing matters.

    Charles Cosby
    “THE SEDUCTION OF A COCAINE COWGIRL”

    Cult-favorite drug documentary Cocaine Cowboys II examines how nickel-and-dime dope dealer Charles Cosby advanced to snow-business heavyweight. In this first-person account, Cosby describes his courtship of a killer coke queen.

    TAG
    “SWEAT SHOP”

    Set for an upcoming spot on Entourage, the Hollywood-minded Bow Wow gets knitted and fitted in lightweight sweaters.

    MUCH MUCH MUCH better then last months dreadful covergirl King. You guys have redeemed yourself Hoopz is a sexy ass thing minus the tomboyish/dykish behavior she portrays on occasion. Other than that I’d bang her.

    LoL King Mag you Put Nikki “Hoopz” on tha cover what tha hell is going on here, she doing y’all like flava flav too, the only thing above average on this girl is her skin complexion and i’m saying like now adays even white girls can get that tone. This girl is busted!!! her tits aint even that big her face looks retarded on that cover also where’s the bitches neck at!!!, Tyra Banks said women gotta show they neck dis bitch aint got no neck she’s borderline HANDICAP, not saying there’s anything wrong with being handicap but this is King-Mag I mean I love what you guys do but, dis bitch slept with someone to grace this cover and I know whoever it was is regreting It now. Like for real King Mag I got love for y’all but i’m hurting right now, i’m emotional. I feel like y’all trying to take advantage of me please please don’t publish this ugly bitch and if you have too like give the bitch like 3 pictures max, I understand at times magazines have to publish ugly girls to stop the “ugly girl rebellion” against your magazine but this is your cover, this is the first thing buyers see… Ok Ok i’m done i’m hurt really I am!!!

    [...] King magazine has released the image that’ll don its October issue (on newsstands September 2) and it features none other than I Love Money’s Hoopz. That article has yet to surface (the teaser on the King site promises that in it Hoopz “mashes out on the press, addresses rumors and talks real love”). Likewise, there are no additional shots available as yet. Still, this image most likely hints at the things to come. She looks so good, she could break Flav’s heart all over again.

    Hoopz is pretty decent. She is a lil too tomboyish for my type but she is sexy in her own way. I’m really liking the design of that cover though mad creative. Good Job! But hopefully you guys do a double Keri Hilson/Esther Baxter upcoming cover. Now that would be HOT!

    I don’t hate or like Hoopz, she just whatever to me but I hate the cover. They really made her look manish. She is prettier than that. Whoever picked that photo to be cover should get fired. It doesn’t make me want to buy the issue.

    Nikki Noel says:
    Just to Address some of the issues above…lol.. Hoopz is a pretty girl and she no way looks like a drag queen. With that said I dont think that black people should just support any and evrything a black person does..just because there black. Hoops has done nothing positive for people to support what she does. She was in one of the most embarrasing tv shows ever for women, slept with one of the ugliest men ever!!! I mean come on not every hustle is a good hustle.. U dont see every white person supporting Paris Hilton!

    [...] A co-worker just called my attention to the latest cover of King magazine (”The Illest Men’s Magazine Ever” is what the kids are calling it). That’s I Love Money contestant Hoopz, nee Nikki Alexander, ripping through Saran wrap and showing off her boobies. Nice body, scary eyebrows. In the issue, Hoopz talks about love and rumors. Scintillating, but enough to make me go out and buy it so I can quote it here. Sorry! [...]
