if anything this tactic is better because at least we all know we are gonna get the album exactly 1 week before it's release date plus we'll get a high quality itunes rip too.
how many CD's have been leaked the weekend before release date or a couple days before the release date? At least we know we'll get to hear Watch the Throne exactly 7 days prior to physical copies being on the shelf.
Kanye and Jay just don't want the ripping groups to claim any glory but that' doesn't affect me one bit. My goal is to DL and hear albums at least 1 week before it's physical copy release date. whether it's from a group or it's from gay-z and kanye themselves
Why is that your goal ?
I cant understand why more artists dont lock down there studios like this
People used to listen to an album as a whole . Technology has failed us .
