The Find Magazine is a global collective of music lovers dedicated to promoting the diffusion of hip hop with jazz, funk, soul, and related genres. We are inspired by the culture of ‘crate digging’ and thus constantly scour the dusty corners of record shops and outskirts of the internet to find the best music and artistry for you. We hold the aesthetics of hip hop culture in high regard.
