The Source Magazine Back Issues are Soaring on eBay

The Source Magazine

( The Source Magazine had a profound impact on Hip-Hop, no matter what Benzino does to muck up his legacy.

Back when the news wasn’t at our indented phone-tapping fingers, I would anxiously spend the beginning of the month scouring my local bookstore for Hip-Hop magazines.

In the early 90s, there was a plethora of regional and underground publications that covered the Hip-Hop and Rap scene. Some of you may remember-Murder Dog, Rap Pages, 4080, Rap Sheet, HHC, Vibe, URB, FEDS, Don Diva, Scratch, Ego Trip, Blaze, XXL, and most notably, The Source Magazine.

I have fond memories of the Source, most notably the covers. The photography was high post. The Unsigned Hype column was my personal favorite. This column served as a launching pad for many notable artists such as Eminem, DMX, Common, and Biggie, giving them their initial exposure to a wider audience.

Today, collectors are paying high prices for back issues of The Source Magazine, reflecting its enduring impact and cultural significance.
