(Newser) – Don’t count out Vibe, Quincy Jones tells Ebony. Despite this week's announced end to its print edition, Jones says the hip-hop publication he founded 16 years ago will continue online. “I’m trying to buy my magazine back now,” Jones said. “They just messed my magazine all up, but I’m gonna get it back. You better believe it, I’ma take it online because print and all that stuff is over.”

“We gotta get into the 21st century,” the legendary producer continued. “They’re over the same way as the record business. We have got to get into this century.” Vibe will also apparently print its forthcoming—and final—issue, contrary to previous reports.
