Amazon Leaks Joell Ortiz’s New Album

Last December, Amazon accidentally sent out 500 preordered copies of Lil Wayne's Rebirth months before its actual release date, and that was surely embarrassing. Well, the leading online retailer just did it again! According to Joell Ortiz, Amazon was not aware that the date for his album Free Agent had been pushed back by several months and released physical and digital copies on the previously announced date. Says Joell: "Amazon selling 'Free Agent' album 3 months early ... SMH ... [Ortiz's record label] E1 strikes again. Hope yall enjoy." The album is now off the site, which, hilariously, means it's currently only available for illegal download. You're bumming the record industry out, Amazon. [Boombox]
