On some level, it's a credibility issue.

If an unknown artist gets a well known dj to host their mixtape then it gives the unknown rapper some level of credibility because the dj is messing with their music.

There's less of a benefit for well known artists to have a dj host their tape. In this scenario it only makes sense from a branding perspective so that means the dj must be well known. For example, 50 is doing a gangster grillz tape with dj drama.
ya but why would 50 even do that.. 50 doesn't need his a.ssistance one bit.. I swear, Dj Drama would need him more LOL

Ya, you don't lie about DJ smallz.. dude went all the way to Toronto to work in the studio w/ this rapper who is wack-mediocre in my opinion lmao.. I wonder how much DJ smallz charged him for the host - not including getting him up north of the border

and isn't ill will the creator/ ( or some a.ssociation) of one of the more up and coming popular mixtape/single websites now. I think livemixtapes.com or hotnewhiphop.com .. i might be wrong though

He also A&R'ed/put together B.o.b's first major tape that got em noticed, and Drakes as well. Will owns hotnewhiphop.com
