I just read the December 2007 issue of your magazine and the article on Lil Wayne was amazing. It couldn’t have been any better. I think Lil Wayne is arguably the best rapper in the game right now and I’m a huge fan of his. - Pat Durnigan, firstname.lastname@example.org I love OZONE. Y’all’s 2007 Year End Awards were mad funny and on point. The only problem I have with your magazine is that it’s so damn hard to find in the Midwest. I’ve gotta run around on a scavenger hunt to find it, but it’s worth it. OZONE and XXL are the two magazines I go out of my way to find. Keep up the good work! – Young Deuces, myspace.com/StreetznYoungDeuces (Milwaukee, WI) JB, I just read the 2 Cents that you did on Pimp C and you almost got me teary eyed. Shit, I’m lying, you did get me teary eyed! I’m too hard for that shit! But I was very touched about what you said in your column, because when Slim & I heard the news, I couldn’t help but cry. I guess it kinda hit me a little hard because I was a UGK fan for so many years and then to hear that one of your favorite rappers isn’t going to continue to make anymore new music that I grew up listening to was almost like it wasn’t real. Even though I only met him once, his music made me feel like I’ve known him forever. He will truly be missed in this household! Keep up the great work with OZONE! – Candy Girl, email@example.com (Atlanta, GA) I just caught the December 2007 annual Sex Issue, and yes, I’m late! First of all, great job of showcasing so many different perspectives from rappers, strippers, pimps, prostitutes, and groupies on sex and sexuality. It was definitely an interesting read. But there did seem to be one arena that was left totally untouched, and that was the BDSM arena! I know most folks view this type of action as “creepy white people stuff” but there is a scene here, and from my perspective it’s up and coming. I work off and on as a dominatrix, and there’s so much that this scene has to offer. There are a respectable number of attractive, sexy women of color who are getting into this, and it’s honestly something that empowers us. We’re kicking scrawny white ass and getting paid for it! We’re not necessarily getting naked, and not necessarily fucking. We’re using our brains to conduct serious mind-fuck sessions, and our bodies are to be worshipped and adored. We are drawing on our inherent female superiority to make these men grovel and beg. And yes, I realize that these kinds of clients are more often than not white businessmen, but as women of color we can rule these men without a second thought. I would love to see this topic touched on in OZONE - in the Sex Issue ’08 or sooner! – Mistress Agave, firstname.lastname@example.org I loved the December issue. I’ve been a fan of Lil Wayne since Tha Block Is Hot. I knew he was deep then, but I didn’t know he was that deep. He is really intelligent and I enjoyed reading the whole interview. I also liked the piece on Lloyd, he’s so sexy and seems real down to earth. He’s one of my favorite R&B artists in the game right now. Keep up the good work, OZONE! – myspace.com/ptdabaddest (California) 12 // OZONE MAG
I hardly ever get to read an OZONE Magazine but today I read your 2 Cents and I was so impressed that I had to start typing before I lose the inspiration and passion of my comment. Your 2 Cents in the January issue was very well said; the words fell right into place and it became easier to read. It seems that once you put the pen on the paper your heart took over. I can appreciate an editorial that comes from the heart. Like many of his true fans I miss Pimp C too and I still can’t believe it myself. Your 2 Cents are worth a million and you said it best: We will miss his charisma. I hope in some way he was able to hear your spirit as you were writing. – Rory, email@example.com (Dallas, TX) OH MY GOD! This fuckin’ magazine is amazing. The Sex Issue is off the fuckin’ planet. JB, you are my favorite person in Hip Hop, period. I’ve read damn near everything you’ve ever printed. – Quake, firstname.lastname@example.org (Atlanta, GA) This is my first time ever being introduced to an OZONE Magazine. My homegirl showed it to me and the first thing I saw was Lil Wayne, so I knew I had to really get into it. When I ran through the pages, every one of ‘em caught my eye and it was a great feeling. I’ve never been so interested in a magazine before. They’ve never ever been that serious to me, but now I’m going to read every one that comes out. – Diamond Robinson, email@example.com Thanks for those words on the Grit Boys in the Year End Awards. It shows that people still appreciate good lyrics. – Scooby, myspace.com/gritboys (Houston, TX) You’re killing the magazine game right now! I tell anybody who will listen that OZONE is the best magazine out. The latest issue with the dedication to Pimp C is awesome. I’m going to miss The Chronicles of Pimp C. That was the first thing I turned to in the magazine to read. I knew he was going to “tell the truth and shame the devil.” To your credit, you saw the specialty in Pimp C and hundreds of Southern artists to whom you’ve given a stellar platform. – Beno, eadymusicgroup.com (Albuquerque, NM) Thanks for having Lil Wayne in the December issue. Please keep having him on the cover. Next time you have him in OZONE, can you ask him: 1) How many women have you had sex with? 2) How many virgins have you had sex with? 3) Have any women asked if they can measure your dick, and if they did ask, would you let them? 4) Where are the places you’ve already had sex? 5) How long can you last in bed? 6) Do you like to cuddle after sex? I can’t think of any more questions right now, but I’ll send the rest later. – Yanira Ramirez, firstname.lastname@example.org
Editor Responds: Damn, you didn’t think the questions we asked him were intrusive enough?
