I ALWAYS HAD A PASSION FOR URBAN MAGAZINE’S. I ALWAYS WANTED TO HAVE MY OWN MAGAZINE. EVERYTHING IS DONE ON LINE NOW, SO THE COOL PART,  IS THIS LEGENDARY COVERS, AND ART WONT DIE.

MY INTEREST, AND PASSION RELATED TO THESE ARCHIVED PIECES IS THE PEOPLE THAT’S ON THEM, AND WHAT THEY REPRESENT. WHICH IS ” HIP HOP” ! I AM HIP HOP. SOMETHING THAT I DID NOT KNOW WAS  HOW POPULAR THESE COVERS WOULD BE. VIBE MAGAZINE WAS SO CREATIVE AND A HEAD OF THEIR TIME WITH THE ART OF THE PUBLICATION. LOOKING THROUGH THESE VIBE MAGAZINE COVERS, I BEGAN TO GET EMOTIONAL…..THE IMPACT OF COVER ART, OR A PHOTO IN GENERAL LAST FOREVER. THESE IMAGES
