Quincy Jones to save Vibe magazine?

Legendary producer is upset that the publication he created is to close

Quincy Jones has vowed to buy back Vibe magazine, after its closure was announced yesterday (June 30).

The legendary producer originally set up the US hip-hop and R&B title in 1993.

Though ownership rights were purchased by Wicks Media Group in 2006, the producer say he won’t let the magazine cease.


“I’m trying to buy my magazine back now,” he told Ebonyjet. “They just messed my magazine all up, but I’m gonna get it back. You better believe it, I’m’a take it online because print and all that stuff is over.”

The man behind Michael Jackson‘s ‘Thriller’ album added that he plans to take the publication online, because it is more profitable than print.

“We gotta get into the 21st century you know,” Jones said. “Print and all that stuff is over, we gotta remember that. They’re over the same way as the record business. We have got to get into this century.”
