For some time now hip-hop artists have embraced the mixtape as the easy and quick answer to releasing new music. Since sampling has become such a lawsuit magnet, full-length albums have taken a backseat to the mixtape, which allows far more artistic freedom on account of the artist releasing it free of charge.
On this week’s RapCity, we’ll talk about some of the recent mixtapes that have caught our attention. To give you a little heads up, below we’ve even got the links for you to download them so you can get a sense of what we’re on about.
Check ‘em out.
