Another day, another wonderful blog!
Okay, so prior to me having this whole resurgence in blogging, I was neglecting this site for quite some time. I didn’t have much product coming out, either musically or with videos, so I didn’t do a whole lot of maintenance on this site.
Now that I’ve been at this site more often, I’ve noticed something: all of the links to my FREE mixtapes are no longer working!
I posted the majority of the mixtapes up via zshare.net which, at the time, only stored up mixtapes at their links for as long as people were downloading them. If no one downloads from said link(s) for over 60 days, they take down the link.
Well, the last mixtape I uploaded was in April 2009. The project ended the very next month and, aside from 2 or 3 more videos, I didn’t blog much here or give people a reason to check the site. So, people stopped downloading my mixtapes from the links, and they eventually expired 😦
I didn’t think anyone would be interested in downloading my old mixtapes. Not that they’re really THAT old – only about a year or so – but I just figured the fans would be searching out for newer material. It just dawned on me, though, that if those fans hadn’t heard those mixtapes yet, the music would STILL be new to them.
So, will I be posting the mixtapes back up on the site again?
Eh. I haven’t decided. Truthfully, there is an advantage to not posting them back up – namely, I can re-use some of the lyrics from those songs and post them on “new” songs with beats that I own or can use in a sellable song (as opposed to when the songs were on the mixtapes with beats made famous by someone else, meaning I can’t sell the song unless I get resale rights that I can’t currently afford).
However, there is something to be said about giving people new (old) music to hear to tide them over while waiting for my NEW album, “The Obama Milli Remix Guy Strikes Back” to come out on June 8th. Hmm…
Hypothetically, if I DO decide to put them back up, I’ll have to find a more reliable source to post them where they won’t be taken down so easily. I’ll do some research on it and see what’s what.
In the meantime, I’ve got some EXCITING musical ideas and videos to share with the fans, some of which will be dropping very, VERY soon. But I’ll leave that for tomorrow’s blog – adios!
