Most artists would be mad when their new album leaks all over the internet. Obviously that means A LOT less money for the musician. But Lil' Wayne was happy people were illegally downloading Tha Carter IV, and is positive the actual album will still sell.
"We did real good this time, real good. It just means people want to hear it. mean, ’cause there're people's albums that come out that can be leaked and don't leak, so I'm glad mine's leaked! I think we should still do well."
And Weezy was right. Tha Carter IV became the most sold album on iTunes in one week with over 850,000 copies being sold all together.
