Since the publication of my mixtape manifesto there have been a few editorial mistakes that have plagued me. Well, a few months ago word came from the publisher of a small reprint (thanks again everyone for your support!) and a chance for me to make some corrections. For those interested they are below. I do think that despite its flaws the book remains ultimately correct and relevant in its analyses especially given, among other examples, the recent court ruling regarding the future of the Internet. I also remain proud of the initial mixtape radio project the book recounts. And for what its worth, I’ve still not seen much focus on the mixtape or this particular approach to hip-hop, media and African America.
*To the following edits submitted to the publisher let me also add mention of another great critique I received when visiting a class at Howard University (thanks again Dr. Greg Carr). One sister questioned the fact that i did not include WHUR in my analysis of DC’s media environment. She is right on there and that is an inexcusable oversight on my part.
5. On page 121, the Cut Chemist pull quote should be amended to read, “We’re takin’ over radio and wack media… turn off the radio and stick a fuckin’ tape in it!”
