Hood Grown magazine
Hood Grown's management emailed in to thank everyone who made the first issue of Hood Grown Magazine a success. Everyone from the labels to the public generally agrees that they've rarely seen such a well designed hip hop magazine. But that's what Hood Grown do. Hood Grown has just landed major distribution for the magazine with this new issue which will place it in over 300 stores throughout the USA. Below is included a few of the pages of the next issue (due in Feb.), so that you can see what to expect.

Hood Grown's purpose is to cover urban music in a street oriented, yet intelligent manner with content driven by artist, music, and African American culture as it pertains to the art form. The magazine is 36 pages, features full colours covers on 80lb glossy paper, with black & white insides on 70lb glossy paper, and is published bi-monthly.

One of the unique aspects of Hood Grown magazine is that it fosters the discovery of new music and artists whether they're on a major or independent music label. Hood Grown is one of the few magazines where you'll see major artists featured along side independent artists with no separation based on the celebratory status of their record label. The magazine's specialty is featuring unknown upcoming labels, artists, & producers exposing them to an audience that might have little knowledge of them.

To this end the company have decided to provide Hood Grown magazine at a minimal cost to the consumer in order to gain readership for those with limited budgets who would be more likely to pick up XXL or the Source magazines. Hood Grown magazine's cover price is 50 Cents and in some stores it is even given away for free! In order to do this, Hood Grown is totally advertiser supported. They understand the limited budgets of most independent labels and have priced their advertising rates so that even the most cash strapped label can afford to advertise their product.
