THE DEATH OF PRINT JOURNALISM, PART 3,941

The cover of our most recent print edition spotlights TDE/Interscope's Kendrick Lamar. His To Pimp a Butterfly is among the most acclaimed hip-hop releases in years and leads the pack in Grammy noms, including Album of the Year. He looks very likely to go home with an armload of trophies, which should help offset the mortification of appearing on the cover of our rag.

Our Contents Page VIPs, meanwhile, are Grammy men Ken Ehrlich, Jack Sussman and Neil Portnow. As they prep for Music's Biggest Night, to be broadcast live coast-to-coast for the first time, Ken, Jack and Neil once again face the task of turning a big year of music into big ratings. The deaths of some icons in recent weeks will also, regrettably, affect the agenda. Still, it's a cakewalk compared to enduring this HITS Contents shout-out.
