Mixtapes

have become an integral part of the music recording industry as we know it today. It may seem odd to refer to compact disc media or digital media as a tape, but this is how they first started back in the 1980's and 1990's. They first began on cassette tapes, which is where the term came from. People would take their favorite songs and record each song individually on a cassette tape. Many DJs during this time period hand their hand in the music recording business, so they would many put together unheard or unreleased tracks on these cassettes and then drop on them on them streets. One of the more prominent products you would find during the early 1990's were DJ Clue mixtapes. His products were hard to find outside of New York City because the internet was not as popular as it today. It was not until later in the 90's that you would come across one of his projects on the internet, most of the time they could be found on the underground channels of the web. One of the most popular hip hop recording emcees, Fabolous, began his start on DJ Clue's projects by releasing freestyles over some of the most popular beats at that time. Another well known lyricist in the early 2000's was 50 Cent. His retail album "Power Of The Dollar" was eventually shelved, so he took his talents to the streets by releasing mixtapes. He claims to have started the movement, but he was only the first artist to drop a whole entire release featuring him and his G-Unit crew. DJ Whoo Kid was the host of this projects and eventually 50 Cent even started touring of these drops. The internet also helped with his world wide fame. Today, many up and coming music artists that are not even signed to any major record labeles use these products as a way to get their musical efforts heard and on the streets.
     The file format mp3 is what helped to make music what it is today. The original wav file was very large, over 100 megabytes per song on mixtapes. The new compression format mp3 came along and reduced the file size down to around 4 megabytes per song without any noticeable loss in sound quality. This began a new era in the music industry. Music piracy was a big deal because of free mp3 downloads and still somewhat is today. To help combat this issue, there are many different online music services that allow you to purchase a legitimate copy of an artist's album. Some of the major companies are iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon. There are other services that allow users to stream music for a monthly fee, but does not allow you to download a copy to keep for yourself unless you continue to pay that monthly fee.
     This site was the first of it's kind to allow users to stream and download mixtapes. There are many other site out there that copied off this site, but many of them have horrible layouts or are not around anymore. As the saying goes, you can never copy or be as good as the original. It has been 15 years since this site first started in 2002 and it plans to be around for much longer than that. You will find only the best music compilations on this web site and best of all there are no annoying advertisements to ruin your listening experience.
