RHYME AND REASON: BUSTA RHYMES AND SPIKE LEE FEATURED IN THE AVE MAGAZINE'S SPRING 06 ISSUE

New York, NY (February, 2006) The spring 06 edition of THE AVE drops this March with two in-depth cover stories: one of hip-hops biggest icons reinvents himself and Hollywoods most outspoken filmmaker comments on the film and music industries.

Often referred to as hip-hops Energizer Bunny, Busta Rhymes slows down to discuss his new label, new direction and new album, The Big Bang. Despite 15 years in the limelight and a long list of platinum plaques, the rap vet still has the hunger for more as he teams up with super producer Swizz Beatz on his latest hit single, Touch It.

Spike Lee, the outspoken and often criticized Tinseltown veteran, sits down for a hearty discussion about his 20-year career. In addition, the celebrated director continues his recent critique on the problems with hip-hop, and talks about reuniting with Denzel Washington in his latest film Inside Man.

Continuing to address critical social topics, this edition of THE AVE examines eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia, which have become increasingly common in the African-American community; questions Americas claims of being a civilized society when men like Stanley Tookie Williams are executed; and explores the problems within the child welfare system as numerous battered children continue to die at the hands of their abusive caretakers.

Also in this issue, Paul Wall speaks about his recent wedding; BETs 106 & Park host Julissa tests out a batch of consumer products in a new section called Style & Profile; and THE AVE puts a spotlight on Ne-Yo and R&Bs other rising stars.

From the biggest names to relevant community issues, THE AVE is truly a street movement in print. To read exclusive stories and subscribe, log on to www.theavemagazine.com.
