    For this achievement you need to get all 20 songs (10 Sosetsitsu songs and 10 Stance songs) maxed out.

    To be able to upgrade your songs, you need 'Mithril', which is what every boss you come across drops, I'll list how much Mithril is dropped for each difficulty.

    Normal: 3 Mithril per boss.
    Dragon: 7 Mithril per boss.
    Double Dragon: 17 Mithril per boss.

    And the songs have to be upgraded 4 times for it to be maxed out as well, to upgrade your songs, you have to do it at the 'Tapesmith', which is located on 2 different stages, the first one you'll come across it, is on the 2nd stage and then the second one on the 9th stage. Here's a list of how much Mithril you need to upgrade your song(s) each time.

    First time: 2 pieces of Mithril.
    Second time: 6 pieces of Mithril.
    Third time: 10 pieces of Mithril.
    Fourth time: 12 pieces of Mithril.

    Overall total per song: 30 pieces of Mithril.

    Overall you'll need 600 pieces of Mithril, which is a lot and if you're going to grind for it, which most people will want to, it's going to take you some hours, if you're going to do it in one sitting.

    Anyway, in my opinion, the best way to do this is to keep repeating the 2nd stage on the Double Dragon difficulty, since the boss drops 17 pieces of Mithril each time. Also once you've killed the boss and then repeat the stage, you can stop in the Tapesmith to upgrade your songs, or you can wait until you get all the Mithril.

    For the Mixtapes, I'm pretty sure they are random drops, these will probably take just as long to grind then the Mithril, since you'll need 50 Mixtapes per song. Also even if you've got 50 Mixtapes of a certain song, they will still drop from the enemies, which is quite annoying especially if you need to collect for example 1 more Mixtape for the achievement.

    The best stage to farm money, seeing as it is helpful to buy the Mixtapes as well as just farming them from enemies, would have to possibly be Stage 9. I just recently went through both Dragon and Double Dragon difficulty and these were the results.
    Dragon: $9,700
    Double Dragon: $12,600
    You could possibly get more then this, but I do recommened to do this stage, also making sure you open the chest and keep hitting the Tape Worm for Money and also Mixtapes.
    I've just done a run on each difficulty (except for Normal) on Stage 10 and these were my results;
    Dragon: $13,100
    Double Dragon: $15,300 (Without the chest after Skullmageddon, since the bastard ended up killing me when I was so close to killing him).
    Anyway, what I mean by the chest after Skullmageddon, if you don't know about it, is after you've defeated Skullmageddon the first time on Stage 10, you'll have to kill him a second time, which is in space and you become 'Ro-Bro'. As soon as you appear in space, go left and there should be some health there, but what you want to do is go all the way to the bottom left of the screen and push down, it'll take you down a ladder with 3 chest and 2 keys, which is some extra money, credit to Metamania2313 for sharing this information.

    Shops also sell Mixtapes as well as 'Health' (Crystal Dragon Kick) and Extra Lifes, here is a list of what stage and what Mixtapes the shop sells on each of the following stages that have shops;

    Stage 2:
    This shop is located to the left when going up the first ladder you see, it'll be in screen range anyway.
    [Sosetsitsu]Fireball ($900)
    [Sosetsitsu]Spin Kick ($900)
    [Sosetsitsu]Dragon Swarm ($1,100)
    [Stances]Balance ($1,100)
    [Stances]Training Wheels ($900)

    Stage 3:
    This shop is a little tricky and hard to find, it's near where Skullmageddon announces for his men to greet you on the bridge, but before you jump over the hole, you'll see a part where it's got yellow tape saying 'Do not enter!' and there is a vent below it, go up to the vent and hit it a few times and it reveals the shop.
    [Sosetsitsu]Bro Dozer ($1,000)
    [Sosetsitsu]Bomb Toss ($1,000)
    [Stances]Magic Gambit ($1,200)
    [Stances]Successive Strikes ($1,200)
    [Stances]Desperation ($1,200)

    Stage 5:
    This shop is after the Killacopter, it's located to the left on the ladder when you go down it, along with a Sickle on the ground in front of the shop.
    [Sosetsitsu]Spin Kick ($900)
    [Sosetsitsu]One Inch Punch ($1,000)
    [Sosetsitsu]Song Snatch ($900)
    [Stances]Power Gambit ($1,200)
    [Stances]Weapons Up ($1,100)

    Stage 8:
    There will eventually be a set of falling platforms that drop down when you walk on them, once you reach this part, stand on the third falling platform and let it take you down a bit, once so, jump off to your right and the shop is right in front of you.
    [Sosetsitsu]Dragon Swarm ($1,100)
    [Sosetsitsu]Bomb Toss ($1,000)
    [Sosetsitsu]Healing Touch ($1,000)
    [Stances]Rage! ($1,300)
    [Stances]Desperation ($1,200)

    Stage 10:
    This shop is the same as Stage 8, there will be another set of falling platforms throughout the stage, do the same thing, stand on the third falling platform, let it take you done a bit, then jump off and again, the shop will be in front of you.
    [Sosetsitsu]Knee Drop ($900)
    [Sosetsitsu]Lightning ($1,100)
    [Stances]Stunner ($1,200)
    [Stances]Successive Strikes ($1,200)
    [Stances]Absorb ($1,300)

    Overall cost for x50 of each Mixtape;
    (I know you won't be spending exactly this much on the Mixtapes because enemies drop them too of course, but I'm just giving the exact prices of how much you would be spending if you were to be spending this sort of money on Mixtapes).

    Metamania2313No problem! It's what I did to get the money and though it was longer, I earned more money in the long run.

    wBRYDo mission 1 on double dragon difficulty. Use attack skill song steal maxed at lvl 50. You should easily get over $10,000 each run and a bunch of mix tapes also. Try it out for yourself.

    Robster80THANK YOU! I;m glad somebody finally went and posted a top-notch solution for this achievement.
    Posted by Robster80 on 14 Oct 12 at 03:31
    Guds StormGreat solution. I've just got one thing to add: Tape drops are not completely random. Every enemy type is bound to drop a certain mix tape, IF it drops any at all. For example, the big brutish dudes always drop power gambit and the scientist guys drop absorb. Good to know when you only have a few tapes left.

    Salty Old DogGood guide, but need to edit Dragon difficulty provides 7 Mithril per boss, not 10

    MfydIt's been a while since I've played the game, but I was pretty sure it was 10? If that's the case I'll edit it to 7, thanks.

    DaeryoonSong snatch is definitely worth upgrading to 50 first. Combine with magic gambit to steal items, money and tapes from all enemies. Makes grinding this much faster.

    Eva LiLevel 3 is the best to farm money, combine yes with magic gambit and the steal song, hit the Hoverbizzles and you will see that they release so much money. on double dragon difficulty is the top.

    Apothe0sisI am fairly certain that different mix tapes drop from different enemies and their variants: e.g. training wheels and balanced come from Williams-enemies in the first two stages, absorb comes from the undead enemies, rage and power gambit from abobo, successive strikes from the flying drones, bro dozer from Roxy
