I grew up reading the The Source magazine, and still have lots of old issues stashed away in my crib and my parents’ attic. So it’s only right that I post the first ever issue of The Source (August 1988), which I saw over at my White Plains homeboy Dan’s site Sour Powered. Click it twice to enlarge and read about what was hot 22 summers ago in rap music. And if you want to see some of the old hip hop mags I have in my personal stash, click HERE. And for all your other throwback hip hop needs, sift through the Up North Trips archive (it’s so deep it’s not even funny). Holler scholar.
