A Letter from Our Editor Dear Readers, Welcome to another issue of Urban Image Magazine. It is always a pleasure for us to deliver fresh content to your fingertips. I am so proud what our writers and our layout designer have put together for your reading enjoyment. As I watched the 4 part VH1 special, Hip-Hop: The Tanning of America, it hit me that the majority of our readership can't get over the music produced by the 90's. This month Larrod Evans honors the legacy of Biggie Smalls. And as I read his article, he took me back to a time when music was music. Rappers were rappers and R&B artist made music you could make love to. Of course, rappers like Biggie Smalls helped make the ongoing collaboration between R&B acts and Hip-Hop artist popular, but nowadays when I hear alot of R&B music I'm confused. I don't know whether to reach for my girl or reach for my gun. But he made me reminisce, I enjoyed the article so much that i asked him to do a story on an artist or group from the nineties every month. So, everybody get ready for him to cover Jodeci in April. I hope ya'll are enjoying our new look and new site. Leave some comments, let Jeff know what you think. He put alot of hours into it to enhance your experience with Urban Image.
