Lil Wayne Album Pushed Back Again, No Date On Young Money Comp

Even an appearance on The View can’t help Lil Wayne’s upcoming rock album, Rebirth, get on the shelves any quicker. Entertainment Weekly has learned that the new disc has been delayed yet again, with label reps blaming the hold up on sample clearances.

Rebirth, which was originally slated for a April 7 release, has been moved numerous times even sharing a date with Eminem on May 19 at one point. A rep for the Grammy-award winning artist at his Universal label home has confirmed a new June 23 date. Apparently the label wants to the release the Young Money compilation on the same date as well, which is also complicating the matter. Yet as of press time Universal tells XXL that there is no date for the Young Money album.

Wayne has a long history with copyright infringement cases. He recently settled a suit over a Rolling Stones sample, and is currently fighting over a sample used by South African folksinger Karma-Ann Swanepoel’s song “Once,” for his track “I Feel Like Dying.” – Elan Mancini

    TI’s are the real label execs. The ones you don’t see because they don’t do any real work. But get all the money.

    Tall Israeli is politically correct instead of saying “Jews” so no defamation rhetoric is spewed.

    e.g. Lyor Cohen, Steve Rifkind, etc.

    “I guess u learn sumpin new errday”

    You didn’t know that rich jews own AND run the recording industry? What, did you really think that Jay Z was the president of Def Jam, with no college degree to speak of(as if he was Plies or some shit)? C’mon! Just remember, behind every one of these highly publicized CEO/rappers, there’s a rich jew with both hands in said CEO/rapper’s pockets.
