Vibe stealing ideas from an underground magazine?
Media Chin-Check

RWD, the UK's underground hip-hop magazine is wondering if Vibe stole their cover photo idea. Judge for yourself:



RWD stops short of accusing Vibe, but asks the question:

"Did they like our January cover so much, that the ideas team at Vibe decided to steal it? Or was it just a coincidence that they shot 50 Cent as Tony Montana on the cover of their April issue, only a few weeks after RWD’s editor Matt Mason went to meet them and showed them what we did with Kano, in a bid to try and (unsuccessfully) convince them they needed to come to the UK and write about grime?"

I hope Vibe responds, though I doubt they care what any small mag thinks about them.


Just a few pics that I'm passing on...
