May is Black Music Month! To celebrate some of our favorite icons, Beyonce, Jay Z, Kanye West and Rihanna are each gracing their own cover of Ebony magazine’s May 2014 issue.   Well-known music writer Kevin Powell wrote each of the four cover stories with themes of “Diva,” “Mogul,” “Rebel,” and “Poet.”  It was an honor to write the four cover stories for EBONY magazine’s Black Music Month special collector’s edition, and to also pen the additional four mini-features inside,” said Powell. “Rarely do you see today’s unstoppable stars like Beyoncé, Rihanna, Kanye West and Jay Z packaged with legends like Tina Turner, Donna Summer or Tupac Shakur, but we did it because when it comes to Black music, it is important to note the deep connection between the musicians of yesterday and today.
