After 16 years of serving the hip-hop community, Vibe magazine is folding. I may be one of the few people hurting from this but oh well, for me this is my future. I want to be a journalist for a magazine but I don’t know how I can be if by the time I am out of college all these magazines will be over with. The editor in cheif, Danyel Smith, is someone I look up to a lot. According to the article, Vibe has gone down ever since it was bought by a company by the name of the Wicks Group. Vibe used to be hot in the 90’s and if you were influential in the hip-hop community then you were on the cover. They had the infamous death row cover with Suge Knight, Tupac, and Snoop Dogg I believe. They had the other infamous East Coast vs. West Coast cover with Biggie and Diddy and the cover shown above with Tupac. I didn’t think this day would come, hopefully they will be like Honey Magazine and continue online. Oh this is bad.
