There is a petition surfacing that is asking that the Grammys begin to consider non retail albums as they would a studio album. The Change.org item is calling for policy changes that would allow artist to receive greater recognition for their free albums or mixtapes. We often see in Hip Hop that the mix-tape is better than the retail album so maybe is time for a change.
