Kanye West has been hyping his new album, ‘Yeezus’ for weeks now so when it leaked yesterday no was was surprised…they were angry though! Def James Kanye’s label is upset over the early leak…set to be officially released on June 18 and will take legal action but Kanye is unfazed by the leak and knew it would probably happen.
Kanye West’s record label Def Jam is on MAJOR damage control right now — after the rapper’s new “Yeezus” album leaked online today — but here’s a shocker … we’ve learned Kanye’s completely unfazed that his album dropped early.
Sources close to Def Jam tell TMZ, leaks like this aren’t uncommon — especially in the digital age — in fact, the record company has a special leaks division that deals with problems just like this.
“Yeezus” was scheduled to drop June 18, but the entire album surfaced on the web earlier today.
According to sources, the leaks division employs various methods to track down the source of a leak … as well as to put a stop to any further illicit file sharing. We’re told the record company already has a lead on who’s behind the leak and plans to take swift punitive action.
As for Kanye — we’re told he’s cool as a cucumber.
Sources close to the rapper say Yeezy feels it’s almost inevitable for a highly anticipated album to leak … especially with so many cooks in the kitchen.
