You probably didn’t expect it, but some of the most authentic hip hop culture reporting is being done out of Toronto, Canada. The publication, Pound, is said to adapt Nylon’s sense of style, New Republic’s mission statement, all mixed into Source’s subject matter. What’s awesome is you can freely download the latest issue directly from the site, ads, content, all laid out as you would – none of that single page-by-page nonsense.
Take a look at the recent issue. It attempts to not only cover the state of rap and hip hop, but also the culture in between – b-boys, graffiti, MCs, and DJs alike.
