Not Feeling the Vibe: Is Hip Hop Dying?

Quincy Jones' hip hop and lifestyle magazine "Vibe" shuts it doors, effective immediately.

Wednesday, July 01, 2009

After 16 years, Vibe magazine made a big announcement: it's closing. The magazine founded by Quincy Jones covered the world of hip hop. But as the economy slumped, so did ad sales. Essence Magazine Senior Editor Patrik Henry Bass sees the closing of Vibe as another sign of the death of hip hop. Patrik is author of Like A Mighty Stream: The March on Washington, August 28, 1963

Quincy Jones did not discover Miles Davis. Miles was a super star in the '50s and '60s.
