Who said hip-hop was dead? Jax lives!

" width=

Even in death, Christopher "Jax" Thurston affirms that the spirit of hip-hop lives and breathes.

This week's CL cover story on Atlanta underground hip-hop legend and Binkis Recs founder Jax — who collapsed on stage and died while performing at Lenny's Bar on the morning of Nov. 4 — is expanded online to include excerpts of exclusive interviews with:

Other features include:

  • Exclusive music — Jax Forever King MP3 mix by Binkis Recs' DJ Mafioso
  • YouTube footage — including Jax's video for "Who's Jax"
  • Links to Jax tributes — aired on 89.3's Beatz & Lyrics show and 89.9's (WKCR-FM in New York) Smash Radio

The story also includes quotes from DJ and underground hip-hop tastemaker Bobbito. If you never knew anything about Jax — or Atlanta's other hip-hop scene — get familiar.

R.I.P. Jax Forever King. Hip-hop lives.
