Blaze Magazine Closes Shop


Magazine was shut down by Vibe/Spin

Ventures for consistently falling short in meeting advertising

and circulation requirements. The June/July issue will be the

last issue, with Mannie Fresh on one cover, the other with Swizz

Beats. In October, Larry Flynt Publications also gave the ax to

Rappages, but the magazine is scheduled to relaunch next month

under a different publishing company. Many people questioned why

Vibe Magazine launched a sister Magazine that was so similiar

to Vibe. No word yet if the magazine will continue to operate

their website,
