On Saturday August 15, 2009 we spent the day in the Bronx asking those who would know about mixtapes.  As part of a larger and on-going study of the history, impact on hip-hop and continued use and function of mixtapes we share this mini-documix on the subject.  Those featured include DJ Dust and North Star from Division X, Divine and Dedan Kasimu.  Special thanks to our comrade Rosa Clemente for helping to arrange these interviews and to Rebel Diaz for their work and provision of space for hip-hop and thought to exist.  And see our FreeMix Radio archives for more on how this mix relates to that mixtape radio project.
