I just read your latest interview with MTV, advising that you are going to leak Tha Carter III, then you're going to release Tha Carter III in Feb. 2008. All well and good, go get your paper my dude. Your reasoning is what concerns me:
So you're going to re-leak leaked tracks? I understand that you're going to be revamping the tracks, finishing them and switching a couple of words up, whatever. But why call it The Leak if these joints have already been leaked? Ghostface had a GANG of cuts leak before Fishscale (and pretty much all of his albums) came out, but the retail wasn't something different, it was just Fishscale. As a matter of fact, he must have had loads of material, for he later dropped More Fish at the end of last year. You're just putting out Tha Carter III; it just doesn't make sense to me.
Every song that was leaked is coming out on December 18 — and we have four new songs.
It sounds like you're trying to capitalize off the leaks. But instead of dropping mixtapes, you're trying to cake off of the consumer. You're essentially asking us to buy everything we leaked, under the guise that you're going to "finish" the tracks we've already played to death. Just say that. Don't wrap up the tracks in some fancy "leak" package and think you're capitalizing no us. You will, but I digress...
The funny thing about this? Your tracks leak. You release them on CD anyways... guess what? They gonna get leaked AGAIN! And the fucked up part is, what is going to be on Tha Carter III that's dropped in Feb. 2008? Will this be a whole batch of NEW tracks?
Weezy, I'm confused.
