When Candace Parker showed up for her first (very much overdue, we know and acknowledge that) SLAM cover shoot in June of 2021, we had a four-hour HOV playlist blasting out the speakers. She knew every single song.

SLAM 233 is also available now in these exclusive gold and black metal editions. Only 60 copies are available in black, and 94 are available in gold.
