Vibe Magazine Folds

The demise of the magazine industry continues. VIBE magazine has folded. This comes just after fellow music magazine Blender went the way of the gun, so this loss was not entirely unexpected with the drop in music buys coupled with a crash in ad sales. VIBE was started by music producer (who worked on Michael Jackson‘s Thriller to name just one) Quincy Jones and catered to specifically to urban music like hip-hop and R&B. The folding of VIBE leaves Teh Source as the only magazine to target hip hop and R&B music. Bummer. As we always like to find the silver lining in things, we’ll take this as an opportunity to post super sexy T.I.’s VIBE cover from last year. [Gawker]
