According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary the word mixtape came out in 1991. It's definied as; a compilation of songs recorded (as onto a cassette tape or a CD) from various sources.
Say what??? First known use of the word “mixtape” is 1991?? Far be it from me to quibble with the esteemed Miriam Webster folks, but seriously?? When did you first hear or use the word MIXTAPE?
