    Fact of the matter is, as soon as the cd hit the shelves, it was gonna be up for download shortly afterwards, thats just a fact of life.

    Im pretty certain the reason Ghetto will be annoyed at this, is because there was still 4 days for people to get pre-orders in with different outlets, before it dropped and this could have cost him several sales.

    If the artists are big enough there'll come a time when they won't bother with the independents and just get HMV and play.com to distribute. You can't just "ignore" release dates because of competition.

    They must of had permission from Ghetts to release it.

    There obviously working together with the in store signing etc so i doubt they would snake him like that.

    Exactly it's extremely unprofessional to ignore release dates or come up with excuses. There is a lot of effort being put into this release like a lot of the main artists have done, and its a shame that its a record shop that had to mess the plan up. Especially as the actual music was held back from most people and was cleverly allowed not to leak. I'd seriously think about ordering from UKRS again because of this, thats how much respect I have lost for the shop in question.
    Sad to see ANOTHER project with good music not get the credit money and sales wise that it deserves.

    They didn't I heard rumours about this last night but I've double checked and apparently the people distributing it said to sell it when they were called to confirm to ghettos management they said " huh what you on about " - along them lines.

    Think I go to my CD case and find the case if I wanna play a certain tune? lol
    Too true. The album is goin to live in my car from now on, I ripped it onto comp so I can listen to the tunes on my comp. Quite frankly (no pun) I have better things to do than bootlegging. If I was that kinda grime fan, I wouldn't have purchased the album in the first place, I would have just downloaded it this morning.

    without independants there wouldn't be a grime scene. Also allow paying for an album when you don't get a physical copy, great for when your hard drive crashes

    No body knows if this is true yet though, Just wait to uptown say something, im sure they have something to say and a good reason why they wrre selling it early.

    If its coming from Hyperfrank, who has been involved in a lot of Ghetto marketing and publicising you can probably accept it has some truth to it.
