There´s a reason why most artists cant do it
most artists have to deal with the label ...work on the album ,submit the songs,rerecord if label says so,then it get pushed back,label sends a song to a new signed artist so he/she can record the hook...by that time alot of people heard your songs

everybody dont have in house producers and engineer to mix the album

i thought they would lock the cd's in a box and not give out the code til release day or some sh*t but this idea makes a little more sense even tho it got leaked the minute it hit itunes

I wonder if this project existed as a test for this distribution model. Like record labels paid to clear these extremely expensive samples, extremely elaborate packaging, the whole nine...but they also pioneered a new content distribution method.
they didnt pioneer the itunes release which was the first distribution method.

genius but when are they going to come out with a way to stop the piracy after the cd has hit the market
that's it right there. If movies leak a week later or week before, if I know it's coming, I can wait. Same thing for music. once its for sale, its for sale...and it'll be on the net and on the corner. so at the very latest, I'll have it playing in my car 20 minutes after itunes released it, the only people with it faster are wi-fi n*ggas with ipods hooked up in their cars.

Does it even matter? Once its released its free game. All this stopping the leak talk is non sense. Yeah it didn't leak. But once it dropped on itunes, how many people downloaded it from everywhere but itunes? People won't care if they have to wait to download an album on the release date. Money still in pocket.

i cant believe no one has figured this sh*t out yet

it doesnt seem like rocket science to me.

everyone records at the same studio

keep two copies of the disc on two different externals

I don't give a fu*k, as long as the music hits my iPod for free the day of the release.

In the near future they will not even press CD's anymore and all media will be digital which will be more apt to being bootlegged and extremely quicker than burning a disc. It's just a matter of time before their method means no more than the sh*t I took this morning. Way to figure out how to keep the discs safe when discs are on the way out lol. Nice idea while it's lasts.

Um nothing innovate or impressive here

kudos to them for doing it and pulling off

but this just shows you how retarded/inadequate the music industry has been in its f!ght against piracy not how "smart" kanye and jay are, i could have thought this up in my sleep, 5 years ago....

for everybody saying it didn't work because they got it on monday when it dropped on Tuesday that doesnt mean it didn't technically work in some countries where the timezone is ahead by numerous hours. If it hit itunes at 12 midnight in London it's still in the afternoon in the states. Somebody most likely ripped it and put it out on the net.
