One of my favorite magazines, The Fader is doing a special tribute to singer Aaliyah who unfortunately passed away in 2001. The issue features interview with Missy Elliot, Timbaland, Mark Ronson, DJ Blaqstarr, Damon Dash, Andrew WK, Beth Ditto of the Gossip, Method Man, Kid Sister, and more. She left the world before her prime and who knows what she could of have accomplish. You can grab The Fader at your favorite local bookstore or you can download it now. The Fader even put out a special mix compiled by DJ the Honorable Caps. You can grab the mixes here.
Trivia: Trent Reznor of NIN was supposed to work with Aaliyah, but had a schedule conflict. Aaliyah was a big fan of Trent.
