Lil Wayne Announces Tha Carter III: The Leak on December 18, with Official LP Coming in February

Lil Wayne has announced that he will be dropping a prelude to his highly anticipated Tha Carter III album, rather than the actual LP, on December 18 as was previously planned. Speaking to MTV News, Weezy explains that Tha Carter III: The Leak will contain a number of tracks that have hit the internet over the past few months—such as “Prostitute Flange” and “I Feel Like Dying”—but in slightly different forms. “I’m a perfectionist,” he told MTV. “I’mma change a couple verses, couple of lines. I ain’t gonna change nothing up where it fucks up the song, I’ll just make it more complete. There are songs out there that weren’t finished; I’ll add hooks, third verses. We’re working for the fans.” The Leak will also include four brand new songs that Wayne has recorded especially for the release. The track “Gossip,” which Wayne performed live at the BET Hip-Hop Awards last week, will be the album’s first single. Although many have speculated that “Gossip” is a jab at 50 Cent, Weezy denies that allegation. The actual Carter III album, which will contain all new material, is now slated for a February 12 release date.
