And Now...

Never thought it would be like this..

After surviving companies and corporations' legal threats throughout the years, death threats from rappers (lol), and other fuckery... it was the filehosts that bitched up?

Yes. All of our filehosts accounts were deleted along with every single file in the accounts (Filesonic,Filejungle,Fileserve,Megaupload, etc). We took what we thought was appropriate precaution at the time by keeping backups of every file on at least 3-4 filehosts, now literally every filehost that we used is jumping ship from what happen to megaupload.

That means theres over 16,500 dead links/posts that need to be reupped and edited.

I don't have time for that tainters. I got my own business to run that I've been so damn busy with lately that I barely had time to do the administrative shit that needed to be done with MT as of recent. Even if I did have time/energy...what filehost would we use? What if that said filehost does the same thing as all the others and folds? There is no trust left with any of these hosts from me, they've taken my trust along with my money, files, accounts and ran for the hills. Fool me once....

I'd say we had a damn good run. Being the first Hip Hop related download blog/blogger blog starting in 2006 and made it till now while watching everyone else disappear along the way. We posted unique shit that was unlikely to find anywhere else at times, granted requests, gave back to artists on Promo Sunday , even dropping some jewels and computer knowledge time to time.

I've met some of my favorite rappers/entertainers during its run. From the rappers showing love and asking that I "just keep it low don't tell anyone but I've been going to your site for a while" and others that will say "love the site, just don't post my album!" All was a surprise and never thought that my site would reach those people/artists.

So shoutout to everyone who ever reached out to show love, all the loyal tainters.

Last but definitely not least the posters who kept grinding and bringing downloads, time, energy, and personality on a daily basis.

What now? The virtual landscape of filehost filesharing looks grim at best now that governments are getting involved. Not sure what's going to happen with that... only time will tell. As for mexican-taint.com the domain will be going up for sale. Anyone who is interested click the link at the end of the post for the info. Serious inquiries only.

If you'd like to help immortalize the site how about some user definitions/input to Urban Dictionary (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=mexican+taint) and sites like it? Or you can always leave comments/whatever on the Facebook Page  and Twitter Page.

Feel free to leave your comments/goodbyes below.

Damn taint I never thought shit would come to this either I just thought shit just evolves into something better but shit has literally hit the fan. Its been a good run man. I remember stumbling upon ur site back in 06 which started my hardrive collection since I have downloaded so much stuff I have 12 two terabyte drives and they are all filled mostly with stuff from your site and a few others but not as much as Taint. Thanks for All the files and it was greatly appreciated ur hard work wasnt in vein homie. Sad to see the site go but I know this wont be the last we see of you.
========================================
On A side not taint I am in a way kind of happy that what happened to megaupload happened don't get me wrong I Love all the stuff I downloaded but It Became a Serious Addiction. I would download and keep doing it no matter how much time it took and how late I was up which is why I have so many hard-drives. For the past few months since the megaupload shutdown I Kind of felt relief and at ease because I didnt have to spend hours downloading each day like I did since Mexican Taint has been in existence yes i said everyday! so with that thanks once again homie its been a good run.

The statue of Michael Jordan at the united center reads "The greatest there ever was, the best there ever will be" and the same can be said of MT. Thanks to all those who know they deserve it, even the bitchs that made the comment box entertaining.

Ya'll have truly influenced our lives (especially us overseas) that might not have had access to some of the great material.

If ya'll come back or go on the sneak hit me up davesando@hotmail.com I'll keep a candle burning for a return, gone but not forgotten.

Much love and thanks for making my life better for the experience.

Damn man this is really a sad day for me. I always figured that things were just hot momentarily but when things eased up things you would be up and popping again. I really wish you would reconsider the selling of the domain name for a while to see if there's a chance to resurrect the site again. But more than anything I'd like to thank you for your selfless dedication to the culture and spreading of knowledge. There's no other site like this and I doubt they'll be another. Thank you my brother and good luck in all your future endeavors. Peace.

Say it ain't so....the last of a dying breed. You help keep most of these artist relevant by posting their music to such a broad and diverse audience. If "they" were smart they would have found a way to co-op with you in order to utilize all of the followers and music enthusiast to turn a profit. Regardless of how digital downloading and filehosting is regulated "we" will find a way...regardless of the current events your services were great appreciated, and your success with future endeavora is undeniable. Keep it pimpin.

Damn MT I've been with you just over two years and I'm damn sad to see you go but I guess nothing lasts forever. Stay up homie see you on the other side.

saint said...

I've been with you for a loong time. I discovered you quite by accident( we share a love for karate movies-Shaw Bros., and I was on some sight posting like crazy), and I would come to you first, before going to some of the other sites, because i could get what what i want, plus some shit i never knew existed. You've definitely blessed me with some jewels over the years. Stay up.

Richie Schmidt said...

Mexican Taint, my first music blog bookmark. Never thought the power/greed heads would shut us down like this. I'm from the record store era & it was basically the same thing. You would listen to an album & if you thought it was bangin' most likely you would buy it. One of the (many)great things about the site was discovering new and diverse styles of music, opening the door to artists that might not get heard otherwise. Thanks for everything. Respect all your hard work over the years! Wish you well.
