FRANK151 Releases The FRANK Book Chapter 55: Chicago
FRANK151, the cult quarterly publication launches The FRANK Book Chapter 55: Chicago Through Chapter 55, FRANK will provide history and context to reveal a city that’s much more than just its widely publicized bad rap of high crime and murder rates, with guidance from Chicago natives including Virgil Abloh (Been Trill/ Kayne West’s Creative Director) and the GBE collective fronted by Chief Keef.
“I wanted to depict the underground Chi-town that is not publicized emphasizing the rich culture and culinary scene”, states publisher Stephen Malbon.
FRANK explores the juxtaposition of illegal allure and honest blue-collar standards of the Windy City through music, architecture, fashion, major sport legacies, a completely unique culinary scene, and the assortment of creative influx continuously pouring out of Chi-Town. Topics in Chapter 55 range from the history of juking and footwork, the golden days of the Jordan era, and where to get the most official deep-dish pizza, to depicting how Chicago rivals New York and Los Angeles for one of the States’ greatest cities.
Contributors of Chapter 55 include Chicago natives Chief Keef, Christian Alexander, Don C., GBE, George Daniels (Owner of George’s Music Room), Hebru Brantley, IBN Jasper, John Hughes, John Monopoly, Kanye West, Mano, Michael Jordan, Peeda Pan, Playboy, POSE MSK, R.
