Jamrock Magazine

Remember the time when Vibe magazine was the epi-centre of urban popular culture? When hip hop artists such as Wu Tang Clan, KRS One and Jay Z who got no love from other publications but were greeted with open arms by Vibe? This was back in the mid 90s before urban culture became mainstream. Sadly Vibe is no longer the magazine that it was which was edgy, forward thinking and exciting to read. It is now just another magazine. However there is a new publication on the scene that might be able to take up where Vibe left off. Jamrock is a glossy lifestyle magazine that comes with a Caribbean and American edge. Based in New York, it takes a global perspective on all things good such as music, film, style, travel and beauty. The lovely Keysha from The Cocoa Diaries featured Jamrock on her fantastic blog - check it out here.

This looks like a mag that's worth reading, but it probably won't be available in Germany. I've got to keep it in mind when I visit NYC next time...
