I don't have anything personal against Rime Magazine, but I feel comfortable putting them on blast, because they don't pay my bills. Y'see, according to a few of their hip-hop writers, Rime doesn't pay anyone's bills.
Read the thread on MySpace where they reveal which magazines have yet to pay them. Rime gets name checked about 4 times as a perpetual no-pay line stepper.
I understand that they're going through money issues, but they need to be upfront with their writers while asking for a story to be written. I hope the mag stays in business, and all the contributors get their fair share.
