Vibe is going the way of many mags today – its shutting its doors. Looks like the bad economy has nixed yet another publication. Pop the lid for more
it wasnt black owned anyway. who cares, nobody reading magazines anymore , when we can be bloggin bs
technology baby..the idea of paper itself is about to be obsolete
Does this mean I have to pay my billed subscription? I still owe $11.95 for 12 more issues?!!!!!
I Am really saddened by this one though, VIBE Magazine has been around for YEARS! I have ALWAYS, always subscribed to VIBE.😦 “Gone Too Soon..”
WHAT? I heard the rumor that it might shut down, I can’t believe it. SMH.
Vibe was more advertising than substance…..BYE!
This is really sad news. I think that blogs are taking over where the hip hop mags leave off though. In this economy, folks can’t afford to keep buying mags.

I used to collect Vibe I still have all the issues from the mid-90’s, to early 2000’s. I stopped collecting them around ’02 that’s when the music industry changed or my taste in music changed, one or the other.
From reading the comments from this (and other posts), I can tell you hate N*gg*s. Well, there are many of us “Southerners” (smile), who hate them too. Let’s channel this anger towards the record companies, media (print and radio), etc. who really attribute to this negativity. I no longer live in SC, but when I moved to the DMV and throughout my travels (up the east coast and to the west), the “Down South” music is all I heard and continue to hear. (I can’t wait to hear Maxwell’s CD and I heard Sade was working on hers!)I certainly accept you for who you are, and in part, I agree with many of your posts. It is however, disheartening to be classified and stereotyped in a this manner. So can you work on that? For me?
