Free hip hop publication Mugshot Magazine is shutting down due to lack of funding.
If you knew about Mugshot, then you were underground. The magazine was, as Rocka says, “the total opposite of the Source.” But honestly, it was almost like Mugshot was the total opposite of Vibe.
In short time that I read Mugshot, I was exposed to new music from Eternia and Jochris. Issue no 11. had an in depth profile on Jamel Shabazz, while I doubt it got a mention in Vibe.
In fact, this free magazine was better than Fader, Complex, OR Vibe. Sad day, indeed.
