XXcLusive: Lil Wayne & Young Money Albums Will be Released Separately

Fans waiting for Lil Wayne’s long-delayed Rebirth album will have to sit tight for one more week.

XXLMag.com has confirmed with Universal that the album will be hitting stores on Monday, December 21, just one week after they set a December 15 release. Prior to reports, an inside source at the label told XXL that Weezy’s follow up to The Carter 3 will not be packaged with the forthcoming Young Money compilation, We Are Young Money.

Consisting of Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Mack Maine, Gudda Gudda, Tyga, Jae Millz, Shanell, Lil Chuckee, and Lil Twist, the crew will be joined by Gucci Mane, Lloyd, Pleasure P and Baby on their debut. Rebirth, on the other side of the spectrum, will have appearances from Fall Out Boy and Lenny Kravitz.

Wayne and YM will both hit the shelves as the same time as the re-release of Eminem’s Relapse album. Relapse: Refill will include seven new songs, in hopes of tiding listeners over until Relapse 2 comes in 2010. —Elan Mancini

    ………….Wayne needs to stop for a while. His voice is over kill right now for all the hip hop listeners. But Nikki could get it right now on the table next to my bowl of cinnamon toast crunch lol

    come on people. it’s the 4th quarter of the year. isn’t anyone actually hot dropping an album?

    Em is cool but in reality he’s only dropping 7 new songs. and Wayne is nowhere near as hot as he was when Carter 3 dropped last year. i predict Wayne will do 50 numbers with this album.

    so what’s the chain of demand over there?..weezy is first then_____then____then____then_____then____and then weezy again..i really think they could be a new version of the juice crew but they need a marley marl..that in house producer and big name radio dj..they can get 1 that do both or 2 different people..but they need a producer to create thier sound and a respected dj to showcase it..i question wayne business skills so i think this might go wrong in the long run….but the potential to be a multi platinum mainstream supercrew is there.

      “it’s the 4th quarter of the year. isn’t anyone actually hot dropping an album?”

      Remember when we were all talking about this “Rebirth” album like it was to be a major release? The TI’s wouldn’t allow it, shelved it. Now Wayne ain’t gonna be around to perform it.

      Let that one go, and throw the other one(Young Money) with it. That YM CD will have 90% weed-carriers, 10% stars on it. It’s write-off time.

      • dj nice wit it

    @ Capcobra A new version of the juice crew ? really ? Maybe you forgot the juice crew was actually talented and came out when in hip hop you really had to be dope to get a deal. Now it’s all on hype,who you know and promotion. Who other than wayne do you really feel. For the bitches they have Drake. The niggas wanna fuck Nikki but not cop her.Tyga,Mack maine and Jae millz the fuckin cypher has been ……?
