Cover Story: Kanye: Cool or fool?


To many, the name Kanye West is synonymous with ego-driven tantrums and outrageous proclamations, so much so that the rapper-singer-producer-director’s legitimate talents are often ignored. In this edition, Clementine Bastow wonders if West’s reputation has overshadowed his achievements.


The star of this edition’s ‘Vendor Profile’ is Ricky from Adelaide. And we have ‘Streetsheet’ contributions from Tau T and Maree in Canberra, Wayne and Michael F in Melbourne, Barry D in Brisbane, and DJ and Andrew W in Sydney. We also have a great photo of our first Top End Big Issue vendor! Dale is now selling The Big Issue in Darwin at the Nightcliff Markets.
