Despite Kanye West's attempts to keep his album, Yeezus, mostly under wraps until its June 18th release date, the album has been leaked. Kanye has put a few of his new songs out there by performing on Saturday Night Live and at the Met Gala, as well as setting up projections and listening parties, but otherwise, Def Jam and Kanye were taking serious precautions not to leak the remaining songs. For instance, setting up password protected hard drives, recording in makeshift hotel room studios (as opposed to the usual ones), etc.
Now that the album has been leaked in its entirety, music giant, Def Jam is on serious damage control and have dedicated considerable resources to track down who is responsible for the leak. While there is no word yet on who is on Def Jam's list of culprits, we do know the company is planning on taking legal action. According to sources, the company's 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.
