Top 5 Places to Upload your Mixtape

If you're going to get serious about your music, you'll need to start promoting yourself. One of the best and easiest ways for rappers to promote themselves is through mixtape distribution. There are plenty of websites out there that will let you upload your mixtape for free. I've compliled a list of some of those websites that have a large audience and will get your mixtape the highest exposure.


Datpiff - This is one of the most popular, most visited mixtape sites, so you can be sure you'll have your mixtape in front of many. You can upload your mixtape for free, and there are also some affordable advertising and sponsorship options to boost your exposure even more.


SoundCloud - This is a high-quality, popular site among artists for posting their work. With a free account, you're limited to 2 total hours' worth of music to upload, however, that's still a lot of songs' worth of time. SoundCloud has a huge userbase, and you'll most likely get some likes and shares on your song very quickly. Just make sure you tag your songs appropriately in order to optimize your mixtape's search results. You can also sync RapPad with SoundCloud to expand your reach even further.


YouTube - YouTube has a vast audience because it's not just used by music artists. However, this is still a great site to get your name and work some exposure. Because YouTube is owned by Google, you can be sure your mixtape will be optimized in the Google searches.


NoiseTrade - If you're looking to build a fanbase and connect with them, this is the site for you. A cool feature with this site is that fans can leave you a tip. You can see a detailed breakdown of NoiseTrade's demographics and audience here.

Coast2Coast Mixtapes

Coast2Coast Mixtapes - This site is really indie-friendly. There are tons of opportunities to get your music exposed. Most are in the form of contest-like submissions where the top-voted songs will get chosen for inclusion of a larger themed mixtape. You'll need to do a lot of vote-soliciting, because the competiton can be pretty tough at times. But the rewards are definitely worth it, if you're willing to put in the work.
