ABOUT MIXTAPE, INC.
An in-depth, unprecedented behind-the-scenes look into the gritty world of illegal Hop-Hop Mix tapes. There’s a battle brewing with the Mixtape DJs, Performers, Retailers and Buyers on one side and the multi-billion dollar record labels and copyright infringement authorities (RIAA) on the other. It’s a love/hate relationship and some have paid the price—jail, fines and more. Yet, mixtapes have become an important, even integral, part of the Hip-Hop culture, revolutionized the Hip-Hop music industry and changed the way we hear and buy Hip-Hop music. The financial stakes are extremely high. These entrepreneurial compilations are now the root of a new power struggle between the urban streets and the traditional corporate music industry. This documentary will take you inside the riveting, unflinching dramas of this volcanic battle.
