  • RIAA Cracking Down on Selling Mixtapes

    Mixtapes are flooding the industry. Since 50 Cent emerged on the scene, everyone are using mixtapes to spread the word and get their music out to the masses. Everyone from 50 Cent, Diplomats to Snoop Dogg and underground artists put out mixtapes.

    Well, it seems that the RIAA is confiscating some inventory from mom and pops shops. Yesterday, Alan Berry, store owner of Berry's Music in Indianapolis, Indiana, was a victim of this. Berry's Music stores and wharehouse were raided by RIAA agents and local police authorities. They confiscated $10,000 worth of inventory, most of that were DJs mixtapes.

    When asked about the raid, Berry told BallerStatus.net, "There were no counterfeits, just DJ mixes. Like DJ Green Lantern's latest. Not a booted copy, but the real mix cd."

    Berry's Music is a local mom and pops music shop. The store has been open for 13 years and Berry boasts that, "When other retailers were hiding their copies of NWA's Straight Outta of Compton, we had it proudly displayed and playing in the store non-stop".

    DJs around the nation are getting into the mixtape circuit. Mixtapes are everywhere, but if stores sell it they can be arrested and have product confiscated. Berry wanted to send out a plea to mixtape DJs & artists, "You will see a lot of urban music stores closing without mixes. Street mixes are an integral part of raps continuing dominance on the charts. Please Eminem, Jay-Z, 50 Cent, let your voice be heard to the RIAA to back off busting stores selling mixes you endorse or make."

    If these mixtapes are out there, how are people supposed to hear them if stores can't sell them? This is want Alan Berry asks. If any DJs or artists would like to contact Alan Berry to help him fight against the RIAA, feel free to email him at [email protected].

          This article was posted months ago (in 2003)... I haven't heard any similar stories since then and mixtapes haven't got any less popular so I don't think it's anyting to worry about.
