In a behind-the-scenes video of the photo-shoot posted by the publication, he also talks previous headline-making covers, like the “hoodies up!” tribute with Boris Kodjoe, Spike Lee, Dwyane Wade and the family of Trayvon Martin; NeNe Leakes; and Kimora Lee Simmons with Djimon Hounsou. “They’ve done a whole spectrum of controversial covers,” he said. “It’s a culture and identifyng with ourselves, and not only that, [but] the world, in general. So, to be a part of it is definitely an honor.”
