• My masthead uses the conventions of another rap magazine. The masthead I have used is very bold
and it is black. I have used black because the genre portrays the colour because black is a strong
and violent colour as the genre ‘rap’ portrays violence and it is a very strong genre. My front cover
picture I used was a copy as it is Eminem but I wanted Tobi to portray Eminem’s pose as his pose
links to genre as his face is blank with no emotion. The colours I have created to my own knowledge
as I have wrote everything in black but, when I write a name I have put the name in red to show the
importance of the names and the red shows aggression and violence links with the artists as their
songs are rap which is aggressive and violent.
• On my contents page, my subtitles use the conventions of another rap magazine as I have used a
decorative font to show the topics of what are going to be in my magazine and the writing is to
make it eye-catching. The names I have wrote are bold and colourful as they’re noticeable and
show the important part of the article and the conventions are shown in another rap magazine. I
used the conventions of Vibe magazine but, added more pictures and text as I think it makes the
contents page more informative.
• My double page spread conventions which are used from another rap magazine is the layout where
I have layered a picture on one of the pages and the other page I have got the writing as it takes up
the first page on one page and has an equal share of writing and a picture. The pull quote I have
created without any conventions from another magazine and I have created the first line in a
smaller font as it is not as important as they second line because double page spread is about
Eminem and the second line includes Eminem.
