During an interview with Punchbowl TV, Swizz Beatz discusses his thoughts about Lil Wayne’s track “Dear Anne” which he produced leaking.
At first, when the “Anne” song got leaked, I was a little bit upset because I felt that it should have got out the proper way, but then I’m like… what’s the proper way of music getting out in 2011? Shit, I’m not even calling my album an album no more. So it leaking and dropping like that sorta goes with my plan. It made a big splash: you know about it, the world knows about it. It got to stand on its own feet. Millions and millions of people talking about it. Trending topic… so it got the proper exposure. I just think that the traditional way of me doing music is over.
