It's always a thrilling for artists to see themselves written up in the pages of a magazine, even more so if that publication happens to be national. Needless to say, DJ Cavem is totally hyped right now. The MC and Westword MasterMind recipient is featured prominently in the October issue of O, Oprah Winfrey's magazine, which is on stands now.
While admittedly a nod in XXL is probably the most desirable placement on any rapper's bucket list, the exposure here is certainly enviable, as it introduces the innovative Denver-based rapper to an entirely new audience. And the props are well deserved: Cavem's been grinding tirelessly for years, and his efforts are inspiring.
