Video: Lil Wayne on Tha Carter IV Leak

Friday, September 2nd, 2011

Lil Wayne tells MTV he’s glad his album leaked. Meanwhile, no matter how happy they are and say the leaks don’t hurt them, we still can’t post anything from the album while everyone already knows the album has leaked and are parading it all over the internet and on Twitter.

Via his Twitter account, Cash Money CEO Birdman has been promoting Weezy’s album for the past week, even going so far as to predict that C4 would sell a million copies in its first week, just like Wayne’s Tha Carter III in 2008. On Monday, he wrote, “C4.BMJR.#Dont Lie 1m. 1week They Know.”

“I think we should still do well,” Mack Maine told MTV News on Sunday. “The leak shouldn’t have affected it that much. Actually, this is the first time that the albums leaked so close [to the release date]. Tha Carter III leaked two weeks before and we still did [1 million] the first week. So if history repeats itself, we shouldn’t have any problems.”

On Tuesday, after a full day of sales, Billboard reported that Tha Carter IV was on pace to sell anywhere between 850,000 and 900,000 copies in its first week. Meanwhile, HITS Daily Double estimated on Friday (September 2) that Wayne could move upwards of 975,000 copies, inching him that much closer to a milli.

In case it had been too long since Lil Wayne released something for his fans to identify was his (and pay for,) Island Records just put up this minute-long Rebirth advert that doesn’t use songs featured on Rebirth for 80% of it. There’s Lollipop, A Millie, Mrs. Officer (all on Tha Carter III,) Jay Sean’s “Down,” and just when you thought the ad was over, there’s “On Fire,” which is on Rebirth – but that’s it for new songs.

The ad also doubles as a reminder to fans of Lil Wayne’s accomplishments, for the most part with Tha Carter III: Continue reading this post…

Aside from this beautiful little leak, Lil Wayne’s people are stepping the fuck away from this rock album, saying it has nothing to do with the previous Carters even though Wayne had originally said that the other Carter III was gonna be subtitled The Rebirth.

UPDATE: Here’s the tagless version of the song.
