A few weeks ago, we heard that David Mays and Benzino–the two weasels who nearly ran The Source magazine into the ground–were launching a new magazine called Hip-Hop Weekly. “Wouldn’t it be kinda chuckle-inducing,” we thought, “to make our own fake Hip-Hop Weekly cover? A cover so cynical and moronic and debasing that it couldn’t possibly be real?” And so we did. Kinda funny, right? Nobody would ever believe in something so stupid, right?
A short while ago, we received an email purporting to contain the cover of the real Hip-Hop Weekly debut issue, which you’ll find after the click-through. Take a look, and see if you react the same way we do, which was with a slowly mouthed utterance of Hol. Lee. Shit. Either someone’s ripping us off, or we’re psychic.
