Viper is a magazine born out of frustration. We’ve entered an era in which Hip Hop press is at its least intelligent. Major titles have begun to resemble pamphlets, in which the main features are irrelevant.
Boasting rap dinosaurs on a conveyor belt of magazine covers, their significance is dwindling. Noticing that indie music and fashion magazines have begun to cover Hip Hop in a more thoughtful and interesting way, Viper seeks to boost underground Hip Hop and the culture surrounding it. Named after a slang term once used by William Burroughs, Viper is dedicated to rap fans and supporters of cult scenes worldwide. Source
