    You shouldn't have a release date until you are mostly finished...I would say just fill it up with as much hot shit as you can

    there is no standard number of songs for a mixtape ppl sometimes just put all the heat they have in the line up on the mixtape and re-do songs for the album....i would say do your mixtape using your hottest verses and hooks and make an album out of it.....

    my rule of thumb is that u wanna record at least DOUBLE the tracks that u want on ur mixtape then start cuttin out the weaker ones
    say u wanna end up w/ 16 tracks on the mixtape.. u record 32 tracks n once u finish start eliminating the weak ones til u end up w/ 16 hot tracks.. that way u can use the ones that didnt make the cut as teasers online
    then again recording 32 tracks requires time.. if u only got a month n u got other projects goin on i would just record beyond the # of tracks u wanna end up w/ so that u can eliminate those weaker ones

    I say 12-15 if you are not well known, if you have a big fab base go for 15-17, but truthfully most mixtapes these days are to long. I say go with a lower amount, choose your hits and release them only, cut out the filler/mediocre tracks. You should have at least 30 tracks stacked then start your process of elimination. That's what I would do.
