    In the fall of 1992, newsstands displayed the preview issue of Vibe, a new hip hop magazine produced jointly by Quincy Jones Entertainment and Time Publishing Ventures, Inc. With blue-chip backers like these, hip hop, it seemed, had found its ultimate commercial forum. The articles, features and photo spreads graced a lush, glossy setting that was a clear step up from the more rugged graphics of The Source, rap’s “ghettocentric” house organ which, since its appearance in 1989, had presided over the period of hip hop’s rise to prominence as an international cultural force.
