    In terms of your rap career:

    Spending the money on rights to dope production and putting out an LP?

    or

    Paying a well-known DJ to host your mixtape?

    thats common practice now a days, well actually it would depend......if you already have an established buzz then yea go with the beats, but if you dont i can promise you that you wont sell enough to cover expenses.....but if you dont have a buzz and tying to get one go the dj route, cats will buy the mixtape just off the strength of the dj's name

    i say save your money, hook up with a dope producer and form an alliance....so yall can make music together, customized to suit your preferences.

    spend your money on pro cd packaging.., mastering etc...and promotional things such as reviews and advertising

    tuff one..


    As an MC you want to have a a nice album, fully mastered and everything, so you have a product to stand by... However, Not to many people are checking for independednt artist, so to attract a buzz and to get some people to hear you and start checking for you, you gotta buy some credibility..

    I dunno..

    but before you go overboard on overpriced producers, holla at ya boy...

    lol

    mixtapes are the best way of promo.


    nobody gives a fuck if you drops lp's.. bet


    nobody wants to hear a cd from you that one time a year you finally finished your lp from spending over a YR just to make it.

    people wanna hear you drop a new cd atleast once a month.. or your buzz is gone



    ya'll can keep living in the rm world.. lol but i'm tellin you

    mixtapes are the future.

    mixtapes mixtapes mixtapes


    its whats hot and basically the only way for promotion at this point and time


    and besides if u hook up with the right mixtape dj and show him love .. he will do the same


    for example, j armz is a cool motherfucka .. he has already hooked me up with some BIG name southern artist .. he basically hooked me up with the hottest mothafucka in the south for the last 3 years .. and im doin a song with him


    and on top of that, he gettin me on more mixtapes

    your post just made me think...think it'd be cool to drop a mixtape every couple of months and at the same time work on the official LP?
