Coming straight from the Scratch Magazine website… Issue #20 featuring 50 Cent & Timbaland will be the last ever published!
Announcing the news In a post today, Eskay over at Nah Right says “I hope all you purist snobs are happy. You didn’t buy it when it targeted you, then you screamed bloody murder when Wayne and Jeezy ended up on the cover. You didn’t know what you wanted, and now you have nothing.”
I don’t know exactly what happened, but it’s still a shame. Regardless of the questionable figures that graced covers or the unavoidable filler that’s inherent in all magazines, the staff did a great job keeping producers and DJ’s in the forefront. I’m especially going to miss the bi-monthly equipment pinups and record collection flics.
Selfish thought of the moment: I wonder how long it’ll take for the price of back issues to rise on Ebay.

Remember when James died on Good Times thats all I can say. I was waiting to get my interview. I loved this magazine I was a subscriber.
I know this is an old post, but I just wanted to say, I was just flipping through the very first issue of Scratch Magazine with Dre on the cover. It’s such a GOOOOOD magazine. I’ve read it several times in the past years front to back and never really saw other issues of the mag as years went by.
RIP Scratch Mag. Who knows maybe it’ll be worth a little bit on ebay as time goes by… until then I’m keeping this shit. So much fun to read!
I too know this is an old post……..But i loved its orig form, i can see why they changed their format($). I too was one of the people that talked s*it whn i saw rappers on the covers and not producers, well in all reality they were artists/producers, but i know i would never see another producer not producer/artist but producer, grace the cover again. It wasn’t the “purist’s” fault that it fell through. They just didn’t have enough fans. What fans they did have were die hard fans i will say.
i still hav my last copy damn shame damn shame i guess i got to hold it down
