For its January “Music Issue,” V Magazine grabbed two turntables and a microphone for a hip-hop-inspired editorial featuring Anais Mali, Chrishell Stubbs, Cora Emmanuel, Rob Evans and Travone Hill. Fashion editor Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele outfits Sebastian Faena‘s raptacular story with  80s hip-hop staples like shell-top Adidas, gold chains, tracksuits and medallions, as well as a fair share of lamé from the post-Biggie Puff Daddy and Ma$e era.  Nicki Minaj could do well by herself by staying away from the Muppet-on-acid look and outfitting herself in some of these blingtastic numbers.
