Alex Tumay—an engineer who has worked with Young Thug, Travi$ Scott, and Lil Durk, among many, many others—addressed the avalanche of leaked Young Thug tracks that hit the web yesterday in a message posted to his Twitter account late last night. "Whoever leaked them has no respect for music or the work that goes into creating it," he wrote. "I want to change the world of rap music, and the less these songs are heard, the less of an impact they will make… I'm glad the songs are getting heard, just wish it could have been in a better context." Read the full text of his statement below.
Resisting saying too much, but leaks are heartbreaking.

This shit's been eating at me all day. Luckily there's always more music to make, and more whiskey to drink.
