About Us

Step Off! Magazine is one of the latest online magazines in San Diego! We breathe Hip-Hop music and culture. We aim to share our love of Hip-Hop with the community and gain a few new lovers of the music and the culture. Music, the universal expression brings people together so we hope to unite those of different backgrounds and walks of life together and start a conversation. We also publish in depth and well researched editorials that offer up social commentary on a variety of different social issues in hopes of shedding light on injustices that are perpetuated throughout our society. These goals aside, we also aim to create a platform for new artists, DJs/producers and performers. We believe that now more than ever, we must unite; and one of of those ways is through our shared loved of music, art and culture Step Off! Magazine is all about covering the news that affects us every day while conversely showcasing the best that Hip-Hop has to offer. We love Hip-Hop but above all, we love giving back to the community and through our work here at Step Off! Magazine we want to inspire our readers to make a difference in this world.
