After tweeting his initial response to Thank Me Later leaking yesterday, Drake has addressed his debut’s unauthorized release and said the unfortunate situation could still work in his favor.
Drake believes the good quality of music leaking could spark more interest for fans to go out and support his new album.
“I always said if I had put out an album that was poor quality and music that people didn’t enjoy, then I think the leaks would hurt me,” Drake said in an interview. “Because a lot of the feedback has been great. The word of mouth, music is something that is to be enjoyed. I think it can help me so, June 15th, I’m still confident.” (The Life Files)
Yesterday, Drake addressed the leak with a Twitter posting.
“I gave away free music for years so we’re good over here…just allow it to be the soundtrack to your summer and ENJOY! JUNE 15th!” (Drake’s Twitter)
Southern rapper Killer Mike placed the blame on Drake’s label.
“If i got the bootleg of Drakes album shud i thank him now or wait till it drops and Thank him later…..lemme know?! Gone!”
“Thank Universal for Leaking Drakes Album Now and I will Thank Drake Later. Gone on dem h*es!” (Killer Mike’s Twitter)
West Coast rapper Game said he was impressed from the leaked material he heard.
“RT @YUNGBUCK3: Not really feelin Drake album, right now!!!! Maybe I need to listen to it more. “Cmon Son” ed lover voice… Give em a chance”
“The couple joints I heard on da kid r dope musically n lyrically, hope the album follows up the tape n singles.#hiphopneedsclassicmaterial” (Game’s Twitter)
