Over the years, the differences between a mixtape and an album have been smoothed out by various factors. A mixtape is typically used to build up buzz for an upcoming album or in general to create awareness for an artist. A mixtape may have whole songs contributed by a number of artists. Artist features on mixtapes, many times, tend to be based on favors, relationships and friendships as opposed to full blown contracts. Note: The explosion of the number of DIY musicians and the increasing efficacy of the internet in distributing and promoting music has created a huge blurring of these fine lines. The best example of this would be Drake's Mixtape: "So Far Gone"
Not so much a standalone compilation as it is the doppelgänger of Shabaam Sahdeeq's 2006 album Strategize, this 16-track mixtape is kind of like the hip-hop equivalent of a dub album. Unlike many mixtapes, which use flagrantly lifted samples of current pop hits refashioned into the basis of new songs that could never otherwise be legally released, or which feature tracks by new young MCs in the producer's crew who are looking for some street buzz, Strategize: The Mixtape Album is basically a straight remix of the original record, expanded with . .
Acid Rap is a mixtape, not an album. The exact definition of a mixtape has grown and shifted over hip-hop’s several-decade history. They've come a long way from DJ-mixed compilations of hot tracks that complement radio and club play, over the years mutating into all-star line-ups of emcees spitting hot bars over familiar beats, then to a single crew spitting bars over familiar beats, then eventually to a single crew (or artist) spitting bars over unfamiliar beats. At this point, the aesthetic difference between a mixtape and an album is slight; in the last few years-ever since it became free and easy to distribute them online-mixtapes have grown into hour-long, fully original, single-artist projects often featuring A-list guest verses and expensive beats. But despite nearly identical levels of polish, what distinguishes a modern rap mixtape from a rap album is its goals.
