Are Mixtape hurting hip hop?
Member: (tyebanks) | Posted: 11/18/10 20:02:06 | Tag: Mixtapes,B.O.B,T.J'sDjs,coast2coast,DatPiff


Are Mixtapes hurting hip hop?

OK let me put it out there so this is clear: I like mixtapes and I understand their purpose. But there are too many damn artists focusing on making mixtapes (to see what I mean look at DatPiff.com or Coast2Coastmixtapes.com) and not original music. If I hear another rapper talking about “Check out my mixtape” I'm going to scream. I'm not sure why rappers continue to do mixtapes unless they're trying to get a record deal (which is ****-backwards these days) or just trying to give away music that people have already heard. I know some people will argue it's a great promotional tool, but how can it be when everybody is doing it?

I bumped into T.J. (of T.J.'s DJs and B.O.B's manager) in Atlanta a few years ago. He was coming out of a session at the Atlantis Music Conference. In the session, T.J. asked “How can you mess up a mixtape when the beats are already hits?” Good point. So where's the creativity in mixtapes? If you're not adding original music to the mixtapes, I don't see it.
