Just finished a new rap mix that is getting some good reviews. Now when I say mix I mean a blended mix like you would hear in a club, not a compilation of songs put together by your average ipod user. Any true DJ will tell you a "mixtape" is a labor of love and showcase of your talents as a DJ so don't take it wrong if you catch ugly looks when you refer to your "compilation" of songs you put together last Friday night to listen to while you jog or vacuum your livingroom as a "mixtape" but it happens too often. People try to categorize and box in things and often mis-label things based on popular terms they have heard. If you think I'm not being fair to the masses, ask a DJ what a mix is and then come back later and we will discuss it.
