Slang Rap Democracy

Bringing you all the freshness fit to link.

Vibe Magazine RIP


I was blessed to write for Vibe starting in ’04 (phat thanks to Rondell Conway for giving me a shot) and met and got to work with some great editors (Cell Block, what up!). Coming up it was automatic; cop The Source for my Hip-Hop fix, grab Vibe too for all the other freshness I shouldn’t be missing.

Sad day in the print business, period. Now back to writing…

  1. Damn, sad day… Vibe was a much needed alternative to the other Hip-Hop mags, even though it sometimes seemed to not be able to find it’s true place and flipped from thing to thing occasionally
