Throw on your favorite playlist, crank it as loud as you can, and dive into Inked’s 2022 Music Issue! We’ve got something that will appeal to you no matter your favorite genre, be it hip-hop, pop-punk, country or some cool thing we’ve never even heard of.

Chart-topping rapper Gunna graces one of our three covers. We spoke with him about his latest #1 album, “DS4EVER,” growing up in Atlanta and the way he tries to give back to the community that raised him.

As a whole new generation discovers pop-punk music, it has skyrocketed to a height in popularity never seen before. One of the artists leading the charge is jxdn. After attending a life-altering Juice WRLD concert, jxdn knew he was destined to not only make music of his own, but to use that music to change the world.

Jessica Wilde is so much more than just a pretty face. Wilde is an author, a model, a YouTube personality, the face of our very own cover contest and so much more. We are beyond happy to feature Wilde on our cover for the second time.

When Koe Wetzel named his rebel country group Koe Wetzel and the Konvicts he was simply going for an alliteration, but in our interview he tells us how the name became apt after a drunken boat party. Tom May of indie-punk darlings The Menzingers sat down with us to discuss reworking and re-recording an album in quarantine. Peach PRC explained how her real-life relationships have been changed by calling out an ex directly and by name in a hit song.

Not everything in the issue is music-related, we also have legendary graffiti artist Cope 2 tells us how his career has changed from tagging trains in the ‘70s to having world-renowned galleries host his shows. Scream queen Elvira walks us through her unique career and tells the tale of her one tattoo and how things went wrong. Plus so much more.
