Vibe / September 2, 2011

Weezy told MTV News ‘Tha Carter IV’ leaking was actually a good thing.

“We did real good this time, real good,” Wayne told MTV News correspondent Jim Cantiello after his show-closing performance at the VMAs in L.A. on Sunday. “It just means people want to hear it,” he said. “I mean, ’cause there’re people’s albums that come out that can be leaked and don’t leak, so I’m glad mines leaked.”

Mintues later we found out the album broke Jay-Z and Kanye West’s recent iTunes record.

“Carter” has sold over 300,000 downloads via iTunes in only its first four days of release, according to Cash Money/Universal Republic Records. That outpaces the 290,000 that “Throne” moved through iTunes in its entire first week. (via Billboard) 

Congrats Weezy!
