It’s L.I.T: Photos From the New Places + Faces Zine


Today, Imran Ciesay and Solomon Boyede, the founders of hip hop’s favorite Tumblr, “Places + Faces,” are releasing “L.I.T,” their latest zine featuring candid, behind-the-scenes portraits of artists like A$AP Rocky and Wiz Khalifa. The young duo left the acronym up for interpretation on their Twitter, prompting guesses like “Life Is Turnt” and “Lost In Translation.” Ciesay might prefer the latter—Bill Murray is his “favorite actor of all time”—but the actual inspiration was Kanye West‘s “T.L.O.P.” Peep these exclusive images of wild nights out in London, Tokyo, and New York.
