DJ Clark Kent Talks How The Streets Helped Create $100 Mixtapes

Produced by DJ Mars and Maurice Garland, The Art Behind The Mixtape attempts to delve into hip-hop’s rich history in selling and releasing tapes. The book, which is available for pre-order now, also has a series of online interviews with key players. In this video, DJ Mars sat down with Clark Kent to speak on Kid Capri, Brucie B and how local buzz helped put a price tag on a hot tape. “They were paying $100 for it so no one else could get it,” Kent explains.
