Hip Hop Weekly has been making a name for itself ever since its first appearance on the newsstands in 2006. Being touted as the number one celebrity newsweekly covering TV, music, fashion, sports and celebrity news in the hip hop community, Hip Hop Weekly has reached their milestone 100th issue and its in 3D!!!!
Dave Mays and partner Ray Benzino, the duo behind the creation of The Source magazine which is known to be the first urban/hip hop magazine, have used forward thinking and innovation to create the success that is Hip Hop Weekly.
“We realized that there was an opportunity to create that type of [weekly] magazine for the hip hop culture and the hip hop generation and we sort of broadened even more than what US Weekly and those magazines do” said Mays. “Hip Hop Weekly is like the next generation, its breaking the mold. The mold that has worked for most magazine the past 10-20 years is broken and you cant do a successful magazine the same way anymore and that's sort of what we learned when we left The Source.”
