Ladies and gentleman… “The O-bama Mixtape” is here!
Yes, after being asked over and over again, “Hey, are you going to release a mixtape??” for the past couple of weeks, the mixtape songs have been completed!
Putting together a mixtape was HARD. Not because I didn’t have enough songs, but for the opposite reason: I had so many songs, and wanted to put all of them on this mixtape! I was going to put dang near close to 20 songs on there, but then I remembered that mixtapes are really meant to be teasers, an appetizer, if you will, for the actual album. Plus, I figured it would be nice to have more material to put out another mixtape should I decide to do so!
With that said, the mixtape will probably be 12 to 13 songs, most of which are songs I made using beats from popular songs. Most of these are NOT parodies – they are real songs I just happen to make off other people’s beats using my own flow (i.e. not purposefully copying anyone). With that said, there are 3 songs on there that are parodies: “Erectile Dysfunction” (a parody of Snoop Dogg’s “Sexual Seduction”); “I Get Honeys” (a parody of 50 Cent’s “I Get Honeys”), and – of course – “Obama, Obama” (a parody of Lil’ Wayne’s “A Milli,” just in case you haven’t heard it by now!).
I also have a couple of songs on there that were produced by me that I was going to save for the album, but they use vocal samples from other recorded songs. Since I don’t own the copyrights to those songs I can’t legally sell them – but I CAN release those songs for FREE and still get people rockin’ to them! I will also probably record a few other songs this week – they may not make this mixtape, but they could always be used at a later date…
I still have some small parts to record, like the intro, the small interludes between songs, and the parts near the beginning and end of songs where I mention my upcoming album. If you think the mixtape is hot, just wait until you hear the album! (Coming out in late August – to find out the name of the album and its release date, DOWNLOAD THE MIXTAPE!! HA! Now you HAVE to get the mixtape!! But it’s free, so you might as well get it anyway!)
So, mark the date people: Sunday, July 27, 2008 – “The O-Bama Mixtape,” the hottest mixtape to be released this year!!!
