New DVD Exposes Illegal Mixtape Scene
Walter Bell of Cando Entertainment is directing and releasing a new DVD, Mixtape Inc., which is an in-depth look at the world of illegal mixtapes. The documentary provides behind the scene footage and interviews that exposes the volatile mixtape industry. “We’re doing a documentary about the entire mixtape universe,” Bell says. “We’re trying to lock down something that’s historically significant. Something like Wild Style that kids can look back at 10, 20 years from now.” The documentary reveals the conflict between mixtape DJs and the multi-billion dollar record labels and the RIAA. It also chronicles the rise of mixtapes and their current status as major marketing and financial endeavors. Mixtape Inc. will also feature interviews with Kanye West, G-Unit, Chuck D, DJ Clue, DJ Kay Slay, Lil Jon, Fabolous, RIAA President Carey Sherman and others.
