Will the Vibe Awards take place This Year?

1 Dec

One of the top hip hop awards shows is the Vibe Awards. At one time, the ceremony had a deal with BET and UPN. But, the crackdown on BET’s programming and the demise of UPN led to the show not having a viable outlet. A few times, the ceremony has aired on VH1. But, this past year has been shaky for Vibe magazine.

Despite the struggles of Vibe, it has been one of the most-acclaimed hip hop publications in the history of the genre. The name “vibe” just seems to be owned by hip hop, now. The brand of Vibe first expanded to include the Vibe Awards, in 2003, and has also expanded into other sub-magazines.

When Vibe shut down this summer, the other magazine was put on hold. Usually, the Vibe Awards takes place in the fall and the fall is here. Technically, Vibe magazine still exists, also. So, will the Vibe Awards take place this year?
