In hip hop now the rappers's mixtape can make or break him/she. Most rappers like releasing mixtapes cause they have more creative freedom to express themselves. The record label helps the artist put together a solid project most times. But sometimes the artist can have a hot mixtape, and that mixtape outshines the album in which will hurt the sales. I remember back in the 90's when the Djs ruled the mixtape game not the rapper. Back then I could not wait until I heard the next Dj Clue mixtape or Tony Touch. The mixtapes made in the 90's were classics. After '00 I fell back from mixtapes until late last year, I'm downloading mixtapes all the time now. My present mixtape rotation is Meek Mill's "Dream Chasers", Wale's "Eleven One Eleven", Fabolous's "Soul Tape". Sad to say these mixtapes are better than albums I have brought.
