Rappers never used to put out so many free mixtapes, because it wasn’t necessary, now it is the norm.

Meaning

For example, Lil B’s mixtapes: No rapper has put out more free mixtapes than him, nor have they ever put a download link to an album so his poorer fans could have it. A rapper would NEVER do this, until these days. Curren$y has also put out numerous free mixtapes.
