Wax Poetics Issue 31 (Shuggie Otis b/w MF DOOM)


Purchase Issue 31.

For Issue 31, we talk to some of music’s most mysterious figures. Cover artist Shuggie Otis tells the engaging tale of his rise to stardom and descent from the spotlight. We also look behind the mask at rapper-in-disguise MF DOOM, and we catch up with funky-disco icon Patrick Adams, the man behind many underground hits.
