Ego Trip Magazine: Issue #1 featuring ‘Nasty’ Nas (1994)

ego-trip-1-nas

I had searched the ends of the internet for the very first issue of Ego Trip magazine and couldn’t find it. But thanks to my European connection (Jo in Germany), he came through for us again. Please send him a shout out in the comment section showing your appreciation. He may even send a few more issues for us. Also, he’s looking for some old Source magazines to purchase (issues 1-19, 33-39, 43, 69, 76, 78-80 and 85). If you have them or know someone else willing to sell them, then please leave a comment with your e-mail address so that he can contact you.

  12. It’s funny how some people will ask for the password and never type a ‘Thank you’ for nary a magazine. Hmmm…

    • THANXS ALOT FOR THE MAGAZINE, AND VINCENT HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE GANGSTRESSES DOCUMENTRY. I FOUND OUT TWO DAYS AGO THEY HAD A MIXTAPES [MORE THAN ONE I GUESS] BUT I REALLY WANTED TO KNOW IF YOU HAD ANYBODY WHO HAS IT, I WAS, BAM-BUE ONE OF THE FEMALE RAPPERS TOLD ME THERE WAS SOUNDTRACKS

      • @TROY – I’ve never heard of that documentary or mixtape. Check with Brandan at Recognize the Real to see if he has the mixtape.

    • OK I’LL CHECK WITH HIM.

    • Thanks love the blog

  13. @vince: word! maybe it’s really time to make the blog private… oh, and sorry for the 76ers man…. better luck next year 😉

  14. Thanks Vince, I have a few issues of Ego Trip, but not this one, mad appreciated b.

  17. Once again Vincent thanx for the mags!!! Keep Up!! Luv dis site!!

  18. thanks again! found 2 boxes of The Source at my parents’ place, perhaps I can help?

  19. God bless you, Jo and Vince. I never thought I’d get a chance to read these magazines without shelling out for ’em on eBay.
    Nas interview is great, too.

  20. Much respect, Vincent and Jo! Appreciate your work! Real hip-hop is real hip-hop, not wack wannabes on the radio this days… Thanks for bringing back those days!

  21. Props i’ve looking for some old ego trip mags for a while now.

  22. word booty! I never read this one. Ego Trip’s were hard to come by for me and it was always a special thing if I got one, but it’s probably my all-time favorite hip hop magazine though

  23. this is why i love your blog! you bring me back!

    thank you!

  24. Looking for that password for the 1st Issue of Ego Trip. I only read one issue back in the day. The blog looks ill

  25. hey nice where’s the link?

  26. Turntable Lab in L.A. has Ego Trip mags. I picked up one from summer ’96 (vol.2, no. 5) that I’d be happy to scan and email for people.

    The issue is great. Warren Coolidge (?) writes an amazing dual album review of It Was Written and Reasonable Doubt in which he basically states that both dudes are really good, but Nas had to be the label’s bitch and Jay-Z didn’t because he had Roc-a-fella. Due to having more creative control and the potential to make more money, Coolidge predicts in 1996 that Jay-Z will have a much better career than Nas. Can you say prescient?

    There’s also good articles on Ghostface and Heather Hunter.

    • @Matthew – I have that Ego Trip issue right here. I’ll be scanning it soon.

  27. Awesome!

  28. Thanks so much for sharing!

  29. Thanks Very Much For Are These Large Covers ..

    But Please Please Can You Remove Those Texts In The Covers , Because I Dont Look Good .
