DatPiff Clarifies That It Isn't Shutting Down


DatPiff has confirmed that it is still up and running but dealing with technical issues on its website and app. In the meantime, the company will continue to update its YouTube page. The clarification came on Twitter after a number of users began reporting that the platform was closing down. The rumor is believed to have started with the circulation of a popular post on the subreddit r/hiphop101. In response to the story, tons of fans came forward to reflect on the impact of DatPiff as well as some of their favorite projects released through the site.

"Despite the rumors, we are happy to report that we will still be supplying you with all the mixtapes you love," the statement from DatPiff reads. "We're working through technical issues on our site and app, but still actively update our youtube! Thanks for all the love and concerns but we promise, we are still here."

DatPiff Current Situation

"I haven't used DatPiff in years but if the site is really gone then RIP, a lot of history was made there and changed a lotta artist's lives," one user wrote in response to the rumors. Another added: "RIP Datpiff - who probably has the most important archive of music from the past 10-15 years anywhere on the internet. It was a bridge between the blog era and the streaming era - and a hub for projects that will never see the light of day on DSPs. Thank you for your service." "Pioneers of the mixtape era," another Twitter user said of the platform. "Thank you for shaping the culture in the 2000s and changing the music industry forever. Long live Biggy Jiggy Mixtapes. So many classic tapes from Weezy and Gucci Mane. A launching pad for Drake, Wiz, and so many more."

DatPiff launched in 2005 and quickly became a staple in the hip-hop community. It hosted a number of classic mixtapes from countless iconic artists including A$AP Rocky, Big Sean, Drake, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, and many more. Check out the responses to its previously rumored shutdown below.
