Petition Aims To Make Mixtapes Considerable Material For Grammy Nominations, Sign Up Here!


Great tapez II

Normally when you think of mixtapes you think about the guy at the gas station badgering you to buy his latest basement project. However,  those of us who’ve kept up with  the market have seen some master pieces worthy of major praise. Drake’s “So Far Gone”, Big K.R.I.T’s “King Remembered In Time”, and Chance The Rapper’s “Acid Rap” are among some of the greats. It seems we’re not the only ones that feel this way. Max Krasowitz has created a recent petition with the goal having mixtapes recognized by the Grammy association for nominations. The petition states:

“Ridiculously talented artists who are releasing free mixtapes and projects are not getting the recognition they truly deserve because the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences insists that to be eligible for a prestigious Grammy Award that the music must be “commercially released in general distribution in the United States, i.e. sales by label to a branch or recognized independent distributor, via the Internet, or mail order/retail sales for a nationally marketed product.”

We completely agree with Max and we would like to assist him with his vision. The number of signatures has surpassed 20,000 and is still rising. Please click the link to offer a wider range of versatility at Grammy’s, and also give new opportunity to deserving artist. SIGN PETITION HERE!
