The September-October Music Issue of the always terrific lit-culture broadsheet promotes several essays related to music, including a review of The Anthology of Rap, highlighted by a cover image from Mike Schreiber’s forthcoming photo book True Hip Hop. In this photo, the mighty Biz Markie boldly flaunts the law, letting out a huge puff of marijuana smoke.

Or is the “Just a Friend” crooner in fact a medium, captured in the midst of a trance state, excreting the gauzy physical evidence of his possession by representatives of the spirit world?

You decide.
