*Exclusive* Pissed-Off Blogger Started Vibe Bankruptcy Rumor?

- By Bossip Staff

BOSSIP.com has learned exclusively from a VIBE Magazine insider that some disgruntled basement blogger sparked a rumor about VIBE Mag going out of business. This is NOT true. The mag is doing just fine. The REAL Rap issue featuring Eminem on the cover features an inside feature about the 50 Best RAP blogs. Reportedly, VIBE is going strong and is not going bankrupt.

The initial blog started on Thisis50 (guess they didn’t make the best blog list):

According to inside sources, Vibe Magazine is almost on the way out. Vibe’s long-run in the game looks to be coming to an end. Sales and subscriptions have been at an all-time low for the past couple of months.

Vibe Magazine used to be a staple in the hip hop community, but ever since Editor-in-Chief Danyel Smith took over, the ship has been slowly sinking. I think we could say that she is single handedly responsible for Vibe Magazine falling apart.

Recently, a story was published in Vibe which listed the Top 50 Hip Hop Blogs out today. If you look at their list, it’s clear to see that Vibe has NO CLUE what the kids are looking at. Ever since Danyel took over it seems like Vibe is detached with what’s going on in the entertainment world. A magazine that started out as something that hip-hop fans could be proud of has quickly turned into a magazine hip hop fans are ashamed of.

It’s a sad day when Vibe Magazine has approximately 130 pages and 70 of those pages are advertisements. As a loyal reader of Vibe magazine, who has followed it and watched the magazine grow for the past couple of years, I hate to say it, but Vibe is on the way out.

On the bright side, hopefully when Danyel Smith is out of a job, she can work with her husband over at Wak Radar. Good luck Elliot!

Welp, being the connoisseurs of hate that we are, we can confirm that there are indeed traces of hateius maximus in that post.

  • The Real Deal

    Actually, Vibe is very low on money and all of the real “insiders” know this as truth. Have you seen their skeletal masthead? OF COURSE the magazine insider who “exclusively” spoke to you is going to be biased and do a PR spin and say that his/her publication, Vibe, is fine.

    To me Vibe lost the swaga few years ago they put just about anyone on the cover now. i remember those day when it was privilege to an artist to grace the cover of Vibe.The magazine needs to go back to basic.

  • mark ginnis

    Why ?If Fif is on the cover, would a Fifty Cent -associated blog lash out? makes no cents(sic)

  • copelli21

    Eew….50 looks like a straight-up ape.

    Nothing can pretty that up.

  • Laralei

    Thats a phony VIBE cover. 50 is not on it. Why would anyone take what a random member on thisis50 posted as truth?? Thats pathetic
