Did 'The Carter 4' Leak k!ll Wayne's Chance At Crushing 'The Throne'?

D*mn. Cole World. Just days before Weezy's highly anticipated Carter 4 was set to drop, the album found its way online and became available to the world via free download.

[Editor's Note: The views expressed in this column do not necessarily reflect those of SOHH.com]

Be clear: The Carter 4 is out. Unofficially. And if illegal downloads counted toward moved units, there's a very good chance its headed toward gold at this very moment.

Speaking of gold status, Watch The Throne recently earned a gold plaque -- nearly two weeks after its release. Considering there was no leak up to the night of its release, many expected it would sell alot more, alot sooner.

Which leads to our question of the day: Considering that The Carter 3 hit plat in a week despite a massive leak, is there still a chance Wayne's latest album could commercially crush the Jay-Z/Kanye project?

The Carter 4 has an impressive list of guest features, a wide range of producers and the legacy of the Carter series on its side. While the hype can't compare to WTT, positive word of mouth following the leak may help push it past gold within the first week.

Negative opinons about the album, however, may hurt sales tremendously.

Even if Lil' Tunechi is fails to topple The Throne, he may still draw blood, as The Carter 4 contains a couple of retaliation shots aimed directly at Mr. and Mrs. Carter.

"Talkin' 'bout baby money, I gotcha baby money," Wayne raps. "Kidnap your b*tch get that how much you love your lady money / I know you fake, n*gga / Press your brakes, n*gga / I'll take you out, that's a date, n*gga / I'm a grown a** blood, stop playing with me / Play a**hole, and get an a** whippin' / I think you pus*ycat, hello kitty." ("It's Good")

Time will tell if Jigga takes the bait.

SOHH Watcha Think -- Did The Carter 4 leak hurt Wayne's chance at crushing The Throne?

I think he'll be lucky to get that. C3 was a better album and lollipop was iconic and generated him more buzz along with A Milli. New day, different buzz. Especially considering we had half the album over a span of a few months! 6 foot created nowhere near what lollipop did for him. Hope I'm wrong but like I said in the other thread, this will hurt YMCMB til Drizzy the great comes to save the day in bouta month n a half. Album is mediocre at best.

are you remedial? The fact he is 41 is the reason he said that line... I'm not saying he did or didn't but he believes he's been around before "swag" was "swag".

6 foot 7 wasn't meant to be lollipop, it was meant to be a milli to be honest... i see what you're saying though. how to love and she will are top ten songs in the country though, so that helps. my estimation of losing 40 percent off of a million first week of Carter 3 is steep, but 600K is still A LOT of albums sold first week in 2011.

yeah i'm confused as well, but he meant total copies sold, not first week.

numbers are low because of downloading pure and simple. but at this point i think his post was sarcasm?
