Mixtapes, commonly defined as non-commercial albums, are popular marketing tools for upcoming rappers who are classified as independent artists and unsigned hype. Many rappers use mixtapes as a means of connecting with the rap audience to build a concrete fan base. The most popular method of mixtape marketing is online uploading to sites such as LiveMixtapes and DatPiff. Online uploading gives rappers the ability to showcase their lyrical skills free of charge. But unlike most mixtape uploading sites, the LiveMixtapes uploading process is a bit different. The LiveMixtapes online application must be completed and submitted for mixtape consideration.
