Man, the recession is a mfka! I hate seeing my beloved magazines struggle like this. Vibe represented my youth (remember the issue right after Biggie died in 1997?) and it also represented my professional career (I was mad ecstatic when my piece on Nicki Minaj made the August 2008 issue). The editor-in-chief, Danyel Smith, is also one of my favorite writers. (I peeped her piece on Keyshia Cole in the Best Music Writing on 2009). I wish I had crazy cash because I would have mos def adopted it. It's a shame. Hopefully this is temporary. If not, we will always remember you, Vibe.
