#47. Roc-A-Fella Crew (The Source, 2002)


Issue: September 2002
Art Direction: Paul Scirecalabrisotto
Photography: Jonathon Mannion

In its prime the Roc-A-Fella roster was a rap juggernaut and The Source highlighted that era by splitting Jay, Dame, Freeway, Beans, Cam, and Bleek across two covers. But like so many rap dynasties that came before it, the downfall was inevitable. (Noticeably absent is The Roc's most famous alumnus, as Mr. West was then still a little known producer.)
