Having your music stored on a USB Drive as well as in your iTunes Library is really beneficial for a number of reasons. In the case of a hardware failure, you will need to rebuild the whole library that you have in your iTunes, so a USB device can be used as a backup option. Moreover, you can also use a USB to store your videos, photos and music since this data can take a huge amount of space, and in order to free some space you can just transfer it to a USB device. You can also just plug in the USB that has all your music stored in it, and it can be played anywhere in your home device or any speakers which might have a USB port in them.
