No Doubt Magazine March 1996 Smif-N-Wessun

No Doubt NewspaperCheck out this classic with Smif N Wessun on the cover. Jobim Rose starts out the mag with a rant about everything that’s wrong in hip-hop right now… The Glitter, Mainstream, Gossip, Other Mags, Wendy Williams and such. Don’t see much room for complaining, 1996 was a great year in hip-hop. This is surely a East Coast magazine, counted the word “son” 46 times. There is a great section where they pit two mc’s against each other, throw some lyrics down and have fans send letters in to the editor for voting of who won the imaginary battle. Wow, the days before the internet. This battle displayed GZA vs Nas pitting GZA rhymes from Livin’ in the World Today against Nas’ Eye for an Eye.
