This Neo2 167 issue is full of surprises. Because we continue with our 25th anniversary and, because in Neo2 we always like to surprise everyone. We have two super women on the cover this time. In the first place Mala Rodriguez, who established herself as one of the rappers with the most sales in Spain that never ceases to surprise us hit after hit. Then there is Natalia Lacunza, a young woman from Pamplona who began her career to fame in Operation Triunfo show and who already has an album that is causing rage in every corner of the world. Apart from the fashion editorials with these two artists, as in all issues of Neo2 you will find interviews, fashion, art, gastronomy, culture and music of all the most avant-garde and transgressive of today's urban culture.
The Desperados and Shoop thing was a magical encounter that now materializes in the Desperados x Shoop capsule collection.
