Project notice was issued in December 2008 to the entire Columbia Basin, directed at contemporaries apparently active in their chosen arts. Intended to spring-board participants based on their level of involvement and contribution, turnout reflected more fresh faces than the well established hip-hop artists of Eastern Washington.

Limited and numbered editions of the physical Mighty Mixtapes were distributed to those deemed necessary to receive them by the participating artists and producers. A second run was ordered to accommodate the anticipated release of Mighty Mixtape 2, in which a copy of Mighty Mixtape 1 would be included.

Diversity of Tri-Cities area rap is difficult to compare to. While it was often denigrated in the past for imitation of nostolgic west-coast sounds, the active artists of this decade are well versed and experiment across a variety of region-based sounds. Though current pop radio is filled with mindless rap dribble, Tri-Cities Hip-Hop is home to stalwart lyricists and word smiths accompanied by worthy soundtrack providing producers.

Innovate and experiment with your chosen art; if you are hearing it on the radio, it has already been done.
