Mix Tapes – America’s New Terrorism

Did you see the story about the law raiding a mix tape office in Georgia? See, mix tapes are the way to get to the streets. The artists release their music to DJ’s and mixmasters first to get street cred and to pump up the promotion on the record (see Nas, Kanye). But the record industry wants it all! All of it! Or nothing! Don’t you imagine the head of the record industry in fluffy medieval dress making decisions like he’s the evil king in Braveheart? I do. If I knew it was against the law, I would have never put Beautiful South and the Pharcyde followed by Lyle Lovett on a tape for Amy Anderson. Anyway, I hope they never catch us. Schadenfreude made a mix tape. We just wanted to get it on the streets before we made some serious money off of it.
