Back in high school, I can remember falling in love with music and burning mixtapes. I would spend hours listening to music and scrolling through Kazaa and LimeWire searching for the latest singles to add to an upcoming mixtape. Unlike today, it would take literally hours to download music due to the speed of dial-up internet.
As the world is transferring into using streaming services for music, mixtapes are harder to find. This is due to the copyright laws which keeps them from streaming platforms. This is a big deal because of one of the most exciting part of music in the 2000s will be left in that era. Even though some labels are trying to bring some of their key artists earlier works to streaming, what will the fate of them be in the end?
