Hello all. Those of you who’ve been around this site for a while may have noticed that I haven’t post in months (well maybe you haven’t noticed.. I’m exaggerating my own importance.. lol) and that’s because I’ve been working my butt off to bring the first hip hop magazine to the iPad platform. Below is my official press release:
What started as a print magazine that ceased publication due to increasing print cost and decreasing advertising revenue has returned as the first hip hop magazine app to hit the Apple store. Spearheaded by Chris “Cartel” English and Lord Jamar (of Brand Nubian fame), the Hoodgrown Magazine app is now available for download in the Apple App store.
“Though the website has been gaining in popularity I always knew that one day we would return to our print roots.” says Hoodgrown’s CEO, Chris English. “This app allows us to combine the best of the print and web experience in a whole new package. I’ll admit it took a little longer to bring to fruition than I would have liked, but already we’re improving on design and interactive elements.”
The app ia available as a free download in the app store as will each issue due to it’s advertiser supported model.
