The October 2001 issue of relax magazine features a clean BAPE x PEPSI aka BAPEPSI cover and backcover, the can on the latter even sporting BAPE camo in multiple different colors. It thoroughly investigates the cultural impact of PEPSI and reports about NIGO and his collaboration with the soda company at length. Next to more interviews and stories on lifestyle and fashion (i.e. Kate Spade as the cover indicates), the magazine is again graced by a special artwork by Mark "Gonz" Gonzales as readers were already accustomed to.
The appendix for this issue was a 3" CD of NIGO's BAPEMAN THEME performed by YOU THE ROCK★. The legendary Kan Takagi and Ape Sounds very own K.U.D.O. were also involved among others. For full credits swipe the image gallery.
Condition: Magazine and CD are used but both in excellent condition. The CD was removed from the magazine by the previous owner, however all inserts and accessories are still present. We have tested the CD and confirm that it is playable without problems.
Please note: The cover image for this listing is a collage of two individual photos we took. The size of the CD next to the magazine may not be 100% accurate, but comes very close.
