This GROUNDBREAKING CD, WHICH MOVED OVER 120, 000 copies, was basically THE CARTER 3 at one point…..BUT because of the songs leaking, wayne had to go back to the lab and re-create “CARTER 3″…..and so far, the consensus is , The Drought is Over 2 is the better CD, so i can see why weezy wee is MAD….
But here is the real….WHY is weezy mad at Mixtape DJ’s, especially THE EMPIRE???? obviously, someone in his Camp leaked the songs to THE EMPIRE…..(and from my understanding, it was his MANAGER who leaked certain songs HE DIDNT LIKE< THAT WEEZY DID….and then THE OTHER records were BOUGHT DIRECTLY from WEEZYS ENGINEER) these are people in wayne’s camp he needs to check….BECAUSE I PROMISE, IF ANY, and i MEAN, any OTHER DJ IN THE WORLD, had the opportunity to get ahold of THE CARTER 3, they would of leaked it too…..THE MIXTAPE GAME is all about Exclusives…..who gets something first, and in this scenario, THE EMPIRE was on top of their Game and sold the FUCK out this CD.
Now, this next piece of INFO is RUMOR BASED…..But has alot of Sources behind it…….this is an email thats been circulating around for the last two days, that i got…..
“Weezy is the one who leaked his material to THE EMPIRE in the first place…..he wasnt pleased with the direction of CARTER 3 at that point,(and also had problems clearing the samples used) and wanted UNIVERSAL to put up more Money for new material…so he hit up Dj BIG MIKEand asked if he’d put out this material….Big Mike didnt want to be the DJ who LEAKED IT…so he passed it onto THE EMPIRE. WEEZY was aware of this, but didnt expect the CD to Blow like it did……..so he stopped fucking with EMPIRE. After the success of the CARTER 3 SESSIONS, THE EMPIRE continued to put out Wayne cds with unreleased material without permission. After wayne made his infamous “FUCK THE MIXTAPE DJ” comment….he knew he had to backtrack and retract his statement or face a BOYCOTT by DJ’s…..so he blamed THE EMPIRE….knowing that was an easy target and would get people off his back about saying “FUCK THE MIXTAPE DJ”.
obviously, the DROUGHT IS OVER helped bring weezy to the next level with the hype it created. Imagine a year and half ago, before this material leaked, if weezy would of dropped this ALBUM. He had nowhere near the BUZZ he has NOW……Though the Material maybe considered better, THE HYPE WASNT…..he wouldnt of made the same IMPACT as he is making NOW.
I think wayne is smart enough to know that….and thats why i think he did, infact, leak those tracks originally….he knew it would help his HYPE MACHINE. if not, then why didnt he diss THE EMPIRE sooner?????
