With cover star Kanye West

The latest issue of Clash hits the shelves today with cover star Kanye West.

With the confidence of a superstar and the music to match, while his country is exploding in optimism, America’s most out-spoken superstar is ushering in a new era for hip-hop. Clash speaks exclusively to Kanye West.

We also present our End of Year Special with our Best Newcomers, Top Underground Electric, our Champs and Chumps of the year and our Top 40 albums of 2008.

There is also a great free cd with some of our favourite tracks of the year with White Denim, James Yuill, Laura Marling, Late Of The Pier, Crystal Castles, Hot Chip, British Sea Power and more.
