The Source, XXL, VIBE, Rap Pages, Ozone – there are countless “urban” magazines on shelves today.

The question is, do you still buy hip-hop magazines? And if you do, which ones?

  • Christina says:

    i love hip hop magazines…they can be pricey for some information that is online and will be old in a week…but i enjoy them and if someone i really like is on the cover….for example…that Jay-Z mag pictured above, i certainly have…i will buy it….

  • Jay-C says:

    Yea I read um when the King (Jay-Z) is on the cover. Its the ROC 4 LIFE.
    P.S. Jay-Z #9 on Forbes 100 richest people.

    all the time..there is an essence to a hardcopy of the latest industry news..Im an avid VIBE and now VIBE Vixen and also The Source, collector so I truly believe that magazines can be kept alive if there is a loyal fan base..Too many people want the instant gratification but often that ends up in misleading info because nothing has been verified

  • shasha says:

    y buy it wen u gonna hear about these stuff anyway

  • Tyranny says:

    I used to be an avid reader of XXL, but nowadays I might get one depending on who’s on the cover. I also used to read The Source, but I lost interest once Benzino started using it as a tool for his beef with Eminem. I still read King, but I don’t know if that counts as a “hip-hop” mag…

  • Jaycee says:

    It really depends on the artist mentioned in the magazine.

  • jay says:

    i used to buy rap mags long time ago but i rather not waste my money when i can go to hip hop game. com or allhiphop.com

  • shaw says:

    yeah with out a doubt i still buy these magazines, NOTE:if you are still a true hip hop cultured individual you would keep your ears and eyes to the streets, and mags like XXL still keep things gully, their is non of that cut up flava mixed in with ass and that pimp ode, on the train of thought section you could also find the essence of REAL hiphop there. is time we bring it back to NewYork for real,it shifted the moment it went down south and everybody knows that …..

    hip hop is Not Dead its playing the wall right now….
