Mannion worked with fellow Ohio native STALLEY to create a cover image for Stalley’s debut album, “Ohio,” due out October 27th on Atlantic Records.

Check out Jonathan speak on Revolt TV Live at 5PM EST today. Mannion will be discussing hip-hop in 1994 and the individuals who helped define it.

Still so engrained in my memory are the horrific moments that the world witnessed 13 years ago today. Tower 1 at 8:46 and Tower 2 at 9:03. I woke up early as I was going to photograph @lennykravitz for @thefader. Checking the weather for the day & planning out what I wanted to achieve drastically changed due to the attack as you can imagine. As a tribute to all those lost and a show of strength today, I humbly request that Lenny, The Fader and I realign forces to create an image for an important 9-11 charity as a show of unity. Details of how to contribute to this cause will be made available as the project locks in. I will clear my schedule to accommodate this necessary session. @iamrobstone @andycohn @faderfam. Shown are 3 views from the South Tower looking uptown (North Tower pictured), looking towards Brooklyn and Looking towards Staten Island. I feel blessed to have had this experience and to be able to share these photos with you today. Remember the courage of the incredible people who gave so selflessly to try to save others, apply this to your life and help those around you. Keep the memory of those lost in your heart. And remember that nothing is promised… Live and love like today is your last day. Blessings!

Issue #59 of Wax Poetics magazine features a collection of never-before-seen images of Aaliyah taken during a 2001 session with Mannion. In this issue, writer Michael A. Gonzales review’s Aaliyah’s debut album, Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number, which turns twenty this year. The album,a mélange of RnB, hip-hop, and pop, helped to define both Aaliyah and mentor R. Kelly as heroes of 90’s RnB.

Mannion Studio is pleased to present the official visuals for KES The Band’s single, “Endless Summer.” Shot over the course of two days in NYC and featuring memorable locales such as Miss Lily’s and Milk Studios, Mannion effortlessly blends Trini culture with the aesthetic of summer in New York.

The first single from Big K.R.I.T.’s upcoming album Cadillactica was released late last week. The cover for “Pay Attention” features a shot from Mannion’s shoot with K.R.I.T. earlier this year in Atlanta, GA. Stream the new single at the link provided below:

Jonathan had the distinct pleasure of interviewing SZA last month at the Apple Store in Soho. SZA, born Solana Rowe, signed to TDE in August of last year after releasing the the well-received “S” and “See.SZA.Run” EPs in 2013.

In this interview, Jonathan forgoes asking “statistical” questions in favor of getting to the heart of what drives, inspires, and underlies SZA’s creative process.

Jonathan will be speaking at the Apple Store in Soho this coming Thursday (June 19) at 7pm. This event is free and open to the public, but requires an RSVP for admission. To RSVP, navigate to apple.com/retail/blackmusicmonthlive and scroll down to Jonathan’s event.

Jonathan had the pleasure of speaking at the Ted-Ed conference in New Orleans earlier this year.
