Import magazine, Blaze, had a fairly short lifespan - only in circulation from 1998 to 2000.
It was set up by Vibe magazine in the USA to cover the hip hop scene, so music content included artist profiles, record reviews and gig news, with the lifestyle side of hip hop cropping up in things like graffiti articles, fashion pages and lots of adverts.
As an example of how their album review pages looked, I have chosen the above item on the excellent Peanut Butter Wolf release "My Vinyl Weighs A Ton" that came out in 1999 on Stones Throw/Copasetik.
I have included my CD version of the album to go with the review.
