    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.

    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.

    Dearest 6AM,

    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? :)

    Lovingly Submitted,

    A Strong, Educated, Beautiful, and “Southern” Woman
