News came yesterday from MC Sage Francis, Byron Crawford and (eventually) Gawker that after the near demise of Vibe Magazine, URB Magazine, another, less glossy, more rap-focused “urban” music publication, is going online-only “for now.”

Confirmation came today via the Urb Blog, which explains: “URB Magazine will be taking a few month hiatus from our print publication to focus on our digital adventures and re-group to offer a new print incarnation in 2010.” Right, well, good luck with that whole re-grouping thing (seriously URB is great, I hope it survives).
