Truth be told, Vibe magazine pretty much sucked from Issue 0 (yes, they actually put that out). It wasn’t just the numerous pictures of half-naked dudes that made me think that something wasn’t quite right about this Quincy Jones project, most of the reviews and articles were horrible as well. There were some exceptions though, and thanks to regular columns from Bonz Malone, Bobbito and the Rap Bandit (guess The Source didn’t need him anymore once Star and Buck jumped on board), the mag was at least worth a five minute read at the newsagents.
The Blindfold Test was a nice, straight-forward concept: Bob would hang out with a musician he respected and try to stump them with his selection of tunes on his box, which often produced some candid and funny remarks. Here we find him sitting with the artist once known as Paul Juice, and Bobbito slyly drops the new Main Source single, featuring his replacement Mikey D. It’s been so long since I picked up a copy of Vibe that I have no idea if this column still exists….hopefully it does. I’m also unsure of what caused that stain on the paper – chances are it was either a curry or some Guinness stout.
Next up: More original Flavor Unit action….
