Staff Writer, News

Marc Griffin is a Louisiana-born, Buffalo, New York-raised Staff Writer for THEE VIBE Magazine. Before joining the squad, Marc graduated from Niagara University with a degree in English Literature Studies and Journalism. Sometime after college, he took up freelancing to chase his dream of one day writing for the music publications that he so obsessively read as a child and managed to acquire bylines in Recording Academy, HotNewHipHop, Consequence of Sound, The Face, among others. During the days that he isn’t writing about music and Black culture, Marc can be found reading Spider-Man comic books, playing his PS5, collecting vinyl records with his fiancé, MJ, or updating his sneaker collection.
