Industry insiders were shocked to see a Marshall's notice on the offices of The Source Magazine. Initially MediaTakeOut.com thought that the notice could mean trouble, but we were assured by a rep for the magazine that everything is going according to plans.
Here's the official word:
The new Source is relocating its offices. The prior office was the premises leased by former owners of The Source with its former staff who are all no longer with the Source. And that property relates to a prior lease.
We wanted an entirely new and fresh start!! The Source with new ownership is relocating to a brand new and modern state of the art facility in the very same building with the same landlord. We entered into a new long-term lease and we have a good relationship with the landlord.
The old Source is no more. We are not a part of prior ownership whatsoever. There is a new era at The Source. We have a new office, new staff, new design and a new flow.
And it looks like new state-of-the-art facilities are going around. MediaTakeOut.com just learned that former Source owners Dave Mays and Ray Benzino are announcing the opening of a brand new state of the art facility for the Miami based magazine - Hip Hop Weekly.
And they say there's trouble in the magazine industry...
EDITOR'S NOTE - The story was changed from an earlier version.
Sounds like they just moved on. The SOURCE is so 90s anyway.
That's crazy. I pretty much stopped reading them anyway. Sup Lisa?
Wow, I haven't picked up a SOURCE since 2000. Apparently not too many others are reading the mag anymore.
U KNW RENT IN NYC IS EXPENSIVE....CUT THEM SOME SLACK.....*** IS TOUGH
Sad to see the source go out like that.......
Unlike the idiots above me, I respect what the source was for my generation. It was the bible to real hiphop.
Thats what happens when you f@uck with someone like Benzino... That magazine was one sided anyway! NEXT!
most magazines are failing because of the internet.

Miami is cool. But Hip Hop is true Hip Hop when its based in New York.
