Lil Wayne‘s ridonculously anticipated Tha Carter III comes out on June 10th. It’s May 31st, and I got a copy of the thing in my email this morning (cheers!). By this afternoon I had a whole fistfull of the fuckers (more cheers!).
It should be noted that the version that’s rampaging through the interwebs isn’t the whole album. It’s 5 tracks short. Anyway.
Who’s taking credit for this historic leak?
Dirty, stank-ass mixtape DJs.
What it was, was, Wayne pissed off a whole load of people last week when he said, “fuck you if you a mixtape DJ.”
He was being interviewed by a mixtape magazine at the time. They’d asked him who his favourite mixtape DJ was.
“I’m against it, anti-mixtape dude,” said Wayne. “I don’t know no mixtape DJs.”
Which I thought was fair. Mixtape DJs have all but ruined Wayne. When Drought 3 was coming out, mixtape DJs bootlegged the thing and filled the internet with their crappy versions, so no one could find the real one (DJ Khaled and Baby were meant to be hosting that. I never heard it. Did it even come out?). Ever since, a daily deluge of compilations of leaked Wayne material masquerading as “official” mixtapes has flooded the streets and the interwebs. His album’s been pushed back over a year thanks to unscrupulous swine stealing his songs and making mixtapes of them. ““Suckin’ my dick and ain’t lettin’ me cum,” as Wayne put it.
Some of that material was great, some was ass. Some was finished, some was not. Mixtape DJs rinsed that shit regardless, and ruined any chance of a truly great Carter III ever happening.
See, if there was any art to these bottom feeding leeches game, I’d be more sympathetic to their cause. But these fools don’t even mix their tapes. No thought goes into the sequencing. The art sucks balls and the quality is negligible. This shit is cheap as dirt. These are the people the Feds should have been shutting the fuck down, instead of proper mixtape DJs like Drama, who puts thought, and art into his mixes, and works with the artists, rather than running off CDs of iTunes playlists comprising of stolen, unmixed material.
“Lately Lil Wayne, dubbed “The Greatest Rapper Alive,” has taken a shot at all mixtape DJs,” sniped one anonymous bum in the text file accompanying the leak. “I myself am a DJ and I found his inappropriateness to be unprofessional considering how this album is highly anticipated. So, I have received this version from a contact who’s name I won’t disclose for his safety and reputation. But since I can give a fuck about “The Rapper Eater,” here’s a gift for his fans as a big “Fuck You” to Sir Lil’ Weezy.”
Which says it all. This foul little suckfish and people like him have been eating off Wayne since 05, and they pay him back by leaking his album! So I join Wayne, with a little paraphrasey, and I say,
FUCK ALL PHONY, ARTLESS MIXTAPE DJS!
I mean, the record would have leaked regardless. Such is the nature of the modern world. The leak is inevitable. But for some cheap little bootleggers to act like it’s some kind of righteous act is just gross. May these lugubrious hacks choke on their lying tongues. May their testicles sprout wings and fly away. I spit on these cock-aroaches.
Edit: Wayne rang Drama yesterday to confirm that his “fuck mixtape DS” comments were indeed for the Carter III robbing Empire people. Check it.
