COMPLEX Pays Homage To Dead Rap Magazines

As a journalist who covers hip-hop, this article really touched my heart. COMPLEX, the best web site from a print magazine out there (yeah I said it), put together an ode to hip-hop magazines that couldn’t stand the test of time. I wrote for several of the magazines covered here – ELEMENTAL was the home of my first cover story, I made connects with SCRATCH that are still helpful to me, and I’m immensely proud to say that I had an article grace the pages of The Ave, which I consider the best concept ever for a hip-hop publication. Others, I didn’t even get to absorb – whether it was because I wasn’t involved in the game at that point, or because they just weren’t available in my area.
