The Source Magazine #128 : Big Pun Cover

R.I.P. to Big Pun, includes an article on his death along with pictures including when he wasn’t so big. 256 pgs in this issue but not much substance.

Hip Hop Quotable: Common – The 6th Sense

Unsigned Hype: Navada

Rating: 7.0/10


The Source Magazine #60 : 2Pac Cover

Very hard not to like a cover that has either Biggie or Pac on the cover. The article is a must read and very telling of what was to come. Organized Konfusion gets a well deserved 4 mics for Stress: The Extinction Agenda. Good to see Jeru The Damaja get an article.

Hip Hop Quotable : Jeru The Damaja – Mental Stamina

Unsigned Hype: None present (or mine is missing)

Rating: 8.5/10

The Source Magazine #177 : Kurupt Cover 1 of 2

Good cover with Kurupt, Ghostface is on the alternative cover. Love the Makaveli Branded Clothing ad with Scarface. I still see Benzino ads in the magazine, is this still during that time? Dead Prez article inside.

Hip Hop Quotable: Saigon – Shok TV

Unsigned Hype: Jay Electronica

The Source Magazine #227 : Barack Obama Cover

Respect for Obama, but with every magazine and their momma’s putting him on covers, it would have been nice to see someone like Andre 3000, Immortal Technique, or Nipsey Hussle grace the cover this month. The political heavy issue was like reading a Newsweek Hip-Hop 101 issue.

Hip Hop Quotable : Murs – The Science

Unsigned Hype: LMFAO (?)

Rating: 4.0/10

The Source Magazine #174 : Hip-Hop Behind Bars Cover

Bullshit cover with a hypocritical editorial about the cover. Kanye West – College Dropout gets 4 1/2 mics.

Unsigned Hype: Joell Ortiz

Hip Hop Quotable: Kanye West – All Falls Down

Rating: 4.0/10
