I know hip-hop/rap mixtapes have been discussed here several times, and we have been given reasons as to why they cannot be added to spotify, but why couldn't spotify add mixtapes and not pay the label/artist per stream?
Like I know for every stream of a traditional song or album the label/artist make a certain amount of money, why couldn't spotify add mixtapes from artists (like Ace Hood, J. Cole, Lil Wayne, Future, etc.) and not pay anything to the label/artist. Wouldn't that eliminate any probems?
This music is already available online for free legally, and if mixtapes were on spotify it would easily become the #1 way to listen to music for me.
