Today I’ma tell y'all about mixtape promotion and how you can use that to benefit your music career and get yourself out there. Basically i had a question asked the other day, “What’s the difference between a mixtape and an album?” When it comes to a mixtape you generally want to give that away for free. Like, you want to put that out there on the internet, you want to give it to DJs, you want to blast it on your email, tell all your friends about it, and just basically give the songs away for free. Whereas, an album is something that you want to have people pay for. You want to put more time into the mix and mastering when it comes to the album. First step, when you do a mixtape, just do a bunch of good songs, get it out there let the public feel it, & let the buzz build up. The public will tell you what song you should do. You want your mixtape to be that medium for it and just give it to people for free. Let the buzz build up then, after awhile, you’ll know when it’s time to release that album. Basically, you’ll want to come with the album right after you build that buzz up with the mixtape. Example of an artist that’s done that recently is “The Weekend,” he’s blowing up now. Solo, he started out on the mixtape scene and also doing features. “Lil Wayne” “Chris Brown,” they all put out songs on mixtape first and they wait till the buzz builds up, whether, that is on youtube or wherever. let the buzz build up and then they drop their album so that’s the whole plan of the whole process. Use your mixtape as your vehicle for promotion. Try not to do to much talking when people don't know you and just let your music speak for itself. Put it out there and if people like it then, it will spread. You won’t have to do much word of mouth. Some good songs spread by themselves, so there you go…
