We’re got confirmation from several GIANT staffers and industry folks that GIANT magazine officially closed up shop today.  After rumors for the past couple months that the mag would be folding, it looks like it’s officially come true.

Alicia Keys is on the December cover and we hear that issue will still be released December 15th.  However, the fate of the next issue with Ms. Janet Jackson is yet to be determined.  The GIANT ONE, Inc. brand will reportedly still continue to operate under Radio One/Interactive One.  And it may re-launch in a strictly web form on GiantLife.com.  Damn homie.  Another one bites the dust….

On a side note, I honestly hope JET can pull it together.  Because the current church pamphlet sized magazine of there’s just isn’t going to cut it for much longer….-TheyBF
