Peep Part I of the “The Untold Story of The Dungeon Family” which is featured in Vibe’s final issue. Will there be a Part II? Who knows… since Vibe Magazine folded and abruptly closed it’s doors a few weeks ago, it all falls on the shoulders of it’s founding father, Quincy Jones, who’s making an effort to save it:
“I’m trying to buy my magazine back now,” Jones told EbonyJet.com on Tuesday, according to an article posted on the Web site.
Vibe, one of the best-selling hip-hop magazines in the country, shut down on Tuesday. Its chief executive officer, Steve Aaron, said the magazine has a debt of “several millions of dollars” and also faced a declining market and decreased advertising revenue.
Jones, a music producer, said he envisioned an online-only future for Vibe. “They just messed my magazine all up, but I’m gonna get it back,” he said.
Jones established the magazine in 1993. It had a circulation of about 600,000, according to Aaron.
The closure eliminates jobs for all 48 staff members, Aaron said. The issue currently on newsstands, featuring Eminem on the cover, is Vibe’s last. (Source)
I’d do Part II my dayum self if I thought I could get all those knee-grows in one place again. Hmmm…. that’s a project I may have to work on.
