Chuck Chill had his own regular feature in the short lived 'Street Scene' magazine, the feature was called 'Chuck Chill's Hip Hop Report'. In a similar style to his Juice Report Chuck would write about the Hip Hop goings on in New York City, with interviews and record reviews.

This magazine was backed by the Street Sounds record label and had a regular Hip Hop section, the first of it's kind in the UK, this was way before Hip Hop Connection. The first issue of the magazine came out in November 1985, it ran for 20 issues with the last printed on 5th April 1986. 

The Street Scene was blamed for the downfall of the Street Sounds record label as the majority of the money in the label was put into the magazine which proved to be a failure.
