Outasight: Major Labels Have Learned To Accept Free Mixtapes

Rap artist Outasight (Richard Andrew)

(Richard Andrew) spoke with The NJ Underground in a Q&A about his ‘Figure 8’ EP, how labels feel about free mixtapes, the ‘Figure 8’ music video, ‘Tonight Is The Night’ being featured on Pepsi’s “Who’s Next” advertisement, touring with Gym Class Heroes and The Dirty Heads, and plans after the tour.

“I don’t think they had a choice,” Outasight said about major labels’ acceptance of mixtapes. “Artists have become commercial stars from mixtapes and the mixtape circuit, so I think the industry had to adapt to the artists’ work ethic. My label personally is completely aware of what’s necessary to help an artist gain more exposure and has been nothing but supportive.”
