Video: Noah Callahan-Bever Interview w/ Al Lindstrom

Monday, December 6th, 2010

Complex Editor-In-Chief and big homie Noah Callahan-Bever sat down with for their interview series on the print world:

In part 1 of our 3 part interview, we discuss his past. He first talks about what got him into the print game. Then he talks about his time at Ego Trip. He says that being in a place where the focus was more on putting out a great product, and less on making a huge profit, was a great moment in his life. Finally, we talk about Blaze magazine. He explains that at Blaze, the philosophy was to cover the new artists, instead of competing for the bigger named artists that the other mags would go for. He said that this taught him to create his own lane with Complex, instead of trying to do what the other mags were doing.

He got more into detail about this, and the great Complex cover piece on Kanye which he wrote, last Thursday on Combat Jack‘s radio show with Dallas Penn on PNCRadio – which you can stream below.

Make sure to tune into this week’s show for a very special episode.
