Buy Viper here: http://viperpublishing.bigcartel.com/ Viper is a magazine born out of frustration. We've entered an era in which Hip Hop press is at its least intelligent. Major titles have begun to resemble pamphlets in which the major features are irrelevant. Boasting rap dinosaurs on a conveyor belt of magazine covers, their significance is dwindling. Noticing that indie music and fashion magazines have begun to cover Hip Hop in a more thoughtful and interesting way, Viper was formed to curate for intelligent rap fans. Based in London with one foot in New York, Viper seeks to boost underground Hip Hop and the culture surrounding it. Named after a slang term once used by William Burroughs, this zine is dedicated to rap fans and members of cult scenes worldwide. Combining her love of Hip Hop with her love of fashion and street culture, the magazine is the brainchild of Lily Mercer and an extension of her journalism and weekly Rinse FM show.
