This quick mixtape guide will give you more insight into streaming and downloading mixtapes from our website. While streaming audio is pretty straight forward, downloading involves a few extra steps that can help in the long run.
Streaming vs. Downloading
Public vs. Membership
Media Player Requirements
Playing Your Mixtapes
Streaming is good if you don't have a lot of hard drive space but the drawback is that you need to be online. Downloading is the opposite, you can listen to the downloaded files offline but you need a good amount of hard drive space to store the files.

In order to download the digital mixtapes you will need a 3rd party archive (zip file) manager to unzip the files. Most operating systems include one natively, but if your computer has trouble recognizing zip files you will need to download one.
We recommend 7zip - Download Here It's Free!
Pro 7zip Tip
A) Open 7zip and go to the settings.
B) Click on Tools > Options in the top menu.
C) In 7zip tab, uncheck all but "Extract files..." & "Extract Here"
Now right click on a zip file and go to 7zip > Extract Here. If you would like to select where to extract the files use Extract files...
To play the mixtape (Mp3) files on your computer you will need a 3rd party multi-media player. Again, most operating systems include one natively but if your computer has trouble recognizing Mp3 files you will need to download a 3rd party multi-media player that supports Mp3. Get one that allows you too organize and keep a library of your collection.
We recommend MusicBee - Download Here It's Free!
