(BPRW) Vibe Magazine April/May 2010 Issue Hits Newsstands April 13th

Split Covers Feature Young Jeezy & Trey Songz

(BLACK PR WIRE) NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The April/May 2010 issue of VIBE (on newsstands April 13th) features split covers of Young Jeezy and Trey Songz. This issue, the second under VIBE’s new ownership, continues VIBE’s mission to expand the parameters of hip-hop culture to a larger audience.

"VIBE continues to recreate and redefine hip-hop culture and take it to the next level,” said VIBE Lifestyle Network Co-CEO and Chief Creative Officer Brett Wright. "Young Jeezy and Trey Songz have been burning up the charts and touring and really connect with the new, multicultural VIBE reader,” commented Jermaine Hall, Vibe’s Editor-in-Chief.

"The Joy of Sex" follows sexy R&B superstar-on-the-cusp Trey Songz hot off The BP3 Tour with Jay-Z and Young Jeezy. The “I Invented Sex” creator talks about his R. Kelly obsession, meeting Stevie Wonder and why considers himself the driving force in today’s R&B.

"Last Man Standing" takes a look at Atlanta’s Young Jeezy and his living embodiment of Gangsta Rap. In a world where keeping it real can land you in jail or in box, Jeezy talks about rising above rapper beef and staying sane enough to release his fourth solo CD, Thug Motivation 103.

The issue offers Erik Parker’s eyewitness account of Haiti’s tragic earthquake in “All Falls Down,” a heartbreaking tale of how Carnival turned into a matter of life, death, fear and redemption.
