Yeah I’ve killed a mag or two in my day, but contrary to popular belief, YN does get sad sometimes when a publication bites the dust. It was announced today that Jane magazine is no more. The young ladies publication had quite a run but now Conde Nast is shuttin’ ‘em down like Chuck D on a Pete Rock remix.
What does any of this have to do with hip-hop? Nothing really but I’m gonna pay rap music homage anyhow. Peace to Jane Pratt. They never filled your shoes, boo.
