they usually dont because their tapes have copyrighted material. its mostly for promotion. if ur sh*t is original then u can sell it in stores.

1. Rappers Dont Get Paid Off Mixtapes, They Are Supposed To Be A Promotional Tool.

2. Some Djs Do Try To Profit Off Mixtapes. Like Drama, But Look What Happened To Him.

3. Mixtapes Cannot Be Sold Unless Its All Cleared Original Material Meaning All The Producers Gave The Ok To Use The Beat And Got Paid For It And The Publisher Got Paid For Using The Sample On The Beat, Etc.

4. People Used To Be Slick And Try To Sell Mixtapes Until Drama Got Locked Up. Notice How Mixtapes Are Now Being Offered For Free.

5. If You Have A Mixtape Site Where You Sell Mixtapes There Are Ways Of Getting Around This.

when rappers and djs get paid off mixtapes they usuallly do a co-signment kinda deal wit different spots that sell mixtapes. They give them say 10-100 copies of the mixtape and then the rapper or DJ gets 2-3 dollars for each mixtape they sell. Once the mixtape spot runs ou they re-up. Then you have bootleggers who get a copy of ya mixtape either by buying it or burning it online (back in the day they would cop a master directly from the DJ for a onetime fee) and then just duplicate it and print up copies of the cover and tracklisting and insert them in to the cases manually. So if u see a mixtape that aint labeled and the cover looks like it came from an inkjet u have bootlegger #2 and the rapper is seeing no doe from them but if u see a mixtape thats official meaning the CD is labeled with contact infromation and the cover is printed proffessionally u have bootlegger #1.

your not paying for the mixtapes, your paying for the art work meaning the cover of the CD and get the mixtape free with the purchase of the art work cover
