    down here, what lots of dudes do is go to the local moms and pops gas stations and pay them to sell it on the counter

    and others go to locally owned record stores and put the mixtapes there.

    as far as hosting goes the bigger the person is the more popular it will make your mixtape. Some Djs host mixtapes for unsigned artist for a fee. If you want one of your friends or yourself to host the mixtape aint no point in a host for it because its your shit anywayz but a host is normally tha narrator of the mixtape kind of like when Dave Chapell hosted that G-unit mixtape

    As for the promotional part of it its a million ways to promote a mixtape...you can put it on datpiff.com

    you can upload it just about anyware online and spread out the links you can burn a bunch of them and hand them out around ya hood u can get flyers made and make em rain in tha club lol you can go to a club and put one in tha hands of everyone that leaves and comes in that got me a lot of sucess with my last tape....your options are limitless it depends on the effort you want to give it

    You need to have somebody thats name carries weight. In todays game, realistically you aren't going to get much gwop. You also need to make sure you link up with the distro peoples in the market your pushing. If you are an artist, invest in yourself and get a big dj to host the tape. Then I would pay a producer that either has allot of buzz in the mixtape game or a bigger producer to push the track to bring buzz and promo around your project.

    Check and goto their forums. There are allot of big dj's that are on that board daily but make sure you take time to get to know people before you start trying to get people to host.

    That was good info! coming from some one who didnt have a host i got 2000 listens in one month internet wide but a host could turn 2000 into 10000. i did put alot of effort into advertising also. Networking with the right people one level up is always great. We all know trying to reach the top dj is hard. So try to move up slower, it does work and is more efficient. check out the mixtape bellow

    This probably isn't a new one, but its not mentioned. Get a good dj even if hes not really known make sure he doesn't talk to the point where he drowns out the artist and has experience.

    I also would say don't let the dj be the last one to touch your mixtape. Its way to often the dj will record on a shitty mic and smear your tracks with over compressed vocals or the whole track just sounds squashed. Sometimes they even turn all the tracks up to high and then most of the tracks end up sounding distorted. Mix the dj in just like you would the artist. The mixtapes dipset puts out are good examples if you have the ear for it. Not saying all djs can't do this, but listen to the other mixtapes the dj has been on first. Theres people who look for quality out there, some can hear it and some cant.
