Extended Play
An EXTENDED PLAY record, often referred to as an EP, is a musical recording that contains more tracks than a single , but is usually unqualified as an album or LP . EPs generally do not contain as many tracks as albums, and are considered "less expensive and time-consuming" for an artist to produce than an album. An EP originally referred to specific types of vinyl records other than 78 rpm standard play (SP) and LP, but it is now applied to mid-length CDs and downloads as well. Ricardo Baca of The Denver Post
The Denver Post
said, "EPs—originally extended-play 'single' releases that are shorter than traditional albums—have long been popular with punk and indie bands." In the United Kingdom
United Kingdom
, the Official Chart Company defines a boundary between EP and album classification at 25 minutes of maximum length or four tracks (not counting alternative versions of featured songs, if present)

Mixtapes
A MIXTAPE (also MIX-TAPE or MIX TAPE) is a home-made compilation of music (typically copyrighted songs taken from other sources) recorded in a specific order, traditionally onto a cassette tape , though later replaced by CD or digital playlist formats. The songs can be sequential, or made into a continuous program by beatmatching the songs and creating seamless transitions at their beginnings and endings by use of fades or abrupt edits. Compilations may include a selection of favorite songs, or music linked by theme or mood, perhaps tailored to the tape's intended recipient. Writing in 2004, essayist Geoffrey O\'Brien called the personal mix tape "perhaps the most widely practiced American art form". "Mixtape" is also used in hip hop to describe certain types of recordings, typically self-produced and independently released albums that are issued free of charge to gain publicity and/or circumvent possible copyright infringement

Financial Crisis Of 2007–2010
The FINANCIAL CRISIS OF 2007–2008, also known as the GLOBAL FINANCIAL CRISIS and the 2008 FINANCIAL CRISIS, is considered by many economists to have been the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s. It began in 2007 with a crisis in the subprime mortgage market in the US, and developed into a full-blown international banking crisis with the collapse of the investment bank Lehman Brothers on September 15, 2008. Excessive risk-taking by banks such as Lehman Brothers helped to magnify the financial impact globally. Massive bail-outs of financial institutions and other palliative monetary and fiscal policies were employed to prevent a possible collapse of the world financial system . The crisis was nonetheless followed by a global economic downturn , the Great Recession . The European debt crisis , a crisis in the banking system of the European countries using the euro , followed later

Slim Thug Discography
DISCOGRAPHY is the study and cataloging of published sound recordings , often by specified artists or within identified musical genres. The exact information included varies depending on the type and scope of the discography, but a discography entry for a specific recording will often list such details as the names of the artists involved, the time and place of the recording, the title of the piece performed, release dates, chart positions, and sales figures. A discography can also refer to the recordings catalogue of an individual artist, group, or orchestra. This is distinct from a sessionography, which is a catalogue of recording sessions , rather than a catalogue of the records, in whatever medium, that are made from those recordings. The two are sometimes confused, especially in jazz , as specific release dates for jazz records are often difficult to ascertain, and session dates are substituted as a means of organizing an artist's catalogue
