A Matter of Time is the debut mixtape by American singer-songwriter Mike Posner. It was released February 28, 2009.
The mixtape was released before Posner was signed to J Records (RCA/Sony). The mixtape features the Brain Trust which includes underground rappers Big Sean, Donnis, Jackie Chain, and singer Eric Holljes. DJ Benzi mixed the mixtape, Don Cannon hosted and shouted out on the mixtape, and Posner did most of all his recordings and writing in his dorm room. His hit single "Cooler Than Me" was debuted on the mixtape before it was released as his first single from his debut studio album, 31 Minutes to Takeoff.
The mixtape has an eclectic range of genres. It combines synthpop, pop, R&B, and hip-hop. The mixtape contains a few covers such as Beyoncé's Halo and the rest are original tracks.
Cooler Than Me was originally released from the mixtape before being released as the first single from 31 Minutes to Takeoff. Smoke & Drive featuring Big Sean, Donnis, and Jackie Chain was another single from the mixtape. This is an extended version off of Big Sean's mixtape "Finally Famous." Drug Dealer Girl is one of the most culturally popular songs from the mixtape. The music video for the song featured Dominican model Rosa Acosta and was shot on the Duke campus where Posner attended.
A Matter of Time was in the top number one position of the iTunesU, which is for free lectures by professors.
