I wrote for Vibe Magazine from 2001 to 2008, for editors including Elizabeth Mendez-Berry, Emil Wilbekin, Erik Parker, Jon Caramanica, and Danyel Smith. My first article was on Usher, the last one was on Chris Brown. I guess there's progress in there.

Some of those articles are now archived by Google Books:
