No-Ice-Cream-Sound-Issue-4

As you may already know, our friends over at clothing brand/music blog Shimmy Shimmy have a smartly-designed periodical called No Ice Cream Sound extending their brand into print. For the fourth and latest edition of the zine, they decided to focus on New York City, with features on local reggae/dancehall notables Shaggy, Clive Chin, Rayvon and Dre Skull as well as clothing brand Rockers NYC, Deadly Dragon and filmmaker Stephanie Black. They also tapped yours truly for a guide to the Top 10 Caribbean eateries in NYC.
