Resolution #8: Avoid putting out mixtapes on major holidays
Why It Needs To Be Made: We understand that releasing mixtapes on holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas can be beneficial. After all, just about everyone is off from school and work on those days, so in theory, all eyes will be on you. But, what if people are—and we know this is crazy—hanging out with their families and (gasp!) not glued to the Internet all day? Well, then you miss the mark and your mixtape slips under the radar despite the fact that it's a solid effort. Word to Fabolous' Soul Tape 2, which we're still trying to digest fully more than a month after it was released on Thanksgiving.
