The Autumn/Winter issue is here!

Nicki Minaj and Adwoa Aboah front Dazed’s new issue, which celebrates the pop icons making art for the brave

I knew my worth from very early on. Some may call it attitude, some might call it genius” - Nicki Minaj.

For autumn/winter, Nicki Minaj returns to the cover of Dazed to discuss her feverishly anticipated return, her ten-year reign as rap royalty, and how her outspokenness has forged a better future for female emcees. For artists like Minaj, confronting past selves is a brave thing to do – but she has always challenged herself in her quest to break new ground. One of pop’s most consistently polarizing figures, Minaj fronts an issue of agenda-setters who refuse to apologise for their art.

Our limited edition cover star, the Burberry-repping Adwoa Aboah, is a similar kind of star, whose unmistakable presence stands to inspire. Then there’s Wolfgang Tillmans, whose decades-long sabbatical from music-making was interrupted when techno troublemaker Powell entered the fray. Shooting the London-based musician in the city, the legendary photographer discusses invading the senses with his new audio-visual project.

Elsewhere, Charlotte Gainsbourg looks back on four decades of fearlessness across music and film while previewing Rest, her rawest album to date; hip-hop wunderkind Noname ponders her newfound optimism; image-making icon Torbjørn Rødland offers a rare glimpse of his earliest work and notorious director siblings Josh and Bennie Safdie share behind the lens insight into their claustrophobic new crime thriller, Good Time
