Thanks to DJ Rhude and VIBE Magazine's Editor-in-Chief Datwon Thomas, affectionately known as Daydog, rap heads can zone out to their latest mixtape NAZ: The Flyest Essence.
"While it probably may never happen, Datwon (Vibe EIC) and I brainstormed about putting together a mixtape as a way of imagining how an album between the two could sound. As a result Naz: The Flyest Essence was born."

Datwon Thomas is editor-in-chief of King, a New York-based men's magazine that profiles video vixens.He notes that Steffans' story is tragic, adding that it portrays an extreme side of an industry that is typically less glamorous, less lucrative, and less dangerous than she describes.
"I think Karrine had a unique experience that not too many women had at that level," he says."[In the book] she's saying step one can lead to step two and that type of thing, but I think she was on step 12."
Thomas describes an industry that is largely underpaid.The average video vixen is not getting flown to Los Angeles and New York; she might even be catching a bus down to the beach for a day of boring, tedious work on a video that never makes it to cable.
