The Leak is the first extended play (EP) by American rapper Lil Wayne. It was released on December 25, 2007, under Cash Money Records.[4] The five songs on the EP were recorded by Lil Wayne during Tha Carter III sessions. The songs were ultimately leaked online by an unknown source, Wayne later compiled the songs and called the project The Leak. Lil Wayne decided to put out The Leak for his fans, so that they could have the CDQ versions of the songs. The EP was later used as a bonus disc for the deluxe edition of Tha Carter III (2008). The EP is estimated to have sold over 250,000 copies and downloads.[5]
