When Lil Wayne was on his magnificent run of ten or so years ago, his music leaked like a sieve.
He reflected upon those Wild West internet days during his Young Money radio discussion with Drake.
According to Wayne, he has a good idea about who was leaking his tunes.

"For me, it was always getting my cars washed. Where the CD's being left in the player, that's how it always happened, bro, to me. A valet guy or something. Like when the valet guy go to park it they hear what's playing and are like 'oh, what's this,'" Wayne explained.
Weezy added that he would have done the same thing if he was the valet, so no hard feelings. Anyway, the leaks didn't put much of a dent on his bottom line. Tha Carter III and IV are among the fastest-selling albums of all time.
Wayne certainly has a known history of being sloppy with his music when it comes to cars.
Everybody's favorite pharma douche Martin Shkreli got an early version of Carter V because Wayne left a copy in his Bugatti when he sold the supercar and the Bugatti's buyer sold the contraband album to Shkreli.
