Mixtapes and Their Recent Popularity

When these compilations became very popular in the late 1990’s and 2000’s there were not as many DJs as there are today.  A few of the top DJs were DJ Clue, DJ Kay Slay, DJ Envy, and DJ Whoo Kid. Nowadays it is hard to find a release from these DJs.  Although out of all of them, you are still likely to find a DJ Whoo Kid mixtape release.  DJ Envy now hosts a morning radio show with Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God.  DJ Kay Slay releases maybe 2-3 mixtapes a year at most.  The last release by DJ Clue was in 2009 and for a short time he was a VJ host on MTV.  In today’s world of music, the market is heavily saturated with compilations containing much of the same music being released at the time.  Back in the DJ Clue and DJ Kay Slay days, many did not contain the same music at all.  The DJs would also have problems with each other if one of them released a track that the other had already released.  Today, it is very commonplace to find many of the products with the same tracks.  Back when DJ Clue and DJ Envy were releasing projects, they only released about 1 every 1-2 months.  People could not wait for these DJs to release a mixtape and when they did, people did whatever they could to get the exclusive release.  Today, DJs release drops every 1-2 weeks and most of these are overlooked because there are just so many products being released that it’s not such a hot product anymore.  With today’s technology it is very easy to find music on the internet and put together a mixtape.  Back in the day, the popular DJs that were releasing exclusive music had an inside connection with record labels.

When DJ Clue was releasing drops, most of the tracks had well-known established artists with maybe 1 or 2 unsigned artists.  Today is the opposite, these compilations are filled with unsigned artists and have only a few tracks by popular music artists.  In the past, DJs would frequently give shout outs over the most popular or unheard tracks.  This kept other DJs from stealing their music and claiming to have it first.  Shout outs are still common today, but not nearly as frequent as they once were.  They used to hold an event in New York City every year similar to the Grammies, but for mixtapes.  This event was called ‘Justo’s Mixtape Awards’, but that event no longer takes place.  One reason the event may not take place anymore is because the awards show would end very early with mixtape DJs backstage fighting with each other.  It may have become too dangerous to hold the award show and was ended before someone was fatally hurt.  Another awards show is the SEA which stands for ‘Southern Entertainment Awards’.  Information about this awards show can be found online by searching Google.
