The New York urban clothing mogul, who turned a company that began in his parents’ garage into a global success with twelve clothing lines, announced on June 2 an interest in taking over the financially and morally bankrupted magazine, The Source.  Ecko currently runs the widely-circulated magazine, Complex, as well a graffiti-inspired video game, Getting Up.  The clothing, magazine and video game combined reportedly brought in over $1 billion over the past year.  You may ask, why take on another project? "The Source was once an icon and a tremendous magazine,” says Clint Caldwell, Director of Corporate Communications for Marc Ecko Enterprises.  “With the proper leadership and an infusion of cash, Complex Media would bring The Source back to prominence.”
