Lil Wayne’s The Leak EP Sells 2,401 Copies In First Week

With virtually no promotion and MP3-only digital distribution, Lil Wayne’s The Leak EP quietly sold 2,401 copies in its first week since being released on Christmas Day (December 25). While The Leak was originally intended to collect many of the outtakes from Tha Carter III’s studio sessions, along with four new songs, Wayne’s label, Universal, confirmed that the project would no longer be coming out in December. Still, on the final release date of 2007, a 5 song EP appeared on digital music retailers like Rhapsody and Amazon with no warning or explanation from Universal or Cash Money. The EP’s first week sales were not high enough to appear on the Billboard chart.

In other chart news, Lupe Fiasco’s The Cool is still the Billboard 200’s highest selling hip-hop album after moving an additional 54,398 copies last week to come in at #14 (one spot up from his #15 debut), bringing his two week total to 198,477.
