Lil Wayne’s Rebirth Pushed Back to 2010, Label Confirms

Lil Wayne fans will have to wait until next year to hear the New Orleans superstar’s repeatedly delayed follow-up to 2008’s Tha Carter III.

Universal Records has confirmed with XXLMag.com that Weezy’s experimental album, Rebirth, has been pushed back to 2010. Cash Money co-founder Birdman made an announcement on his twitter account earlier today that said the disc was moved to February 1, but reps for Universal did not reveal a specific release date.

Wayne’s new LP, which has been reported to feature more rock-inspired material, has faced a slew of different drop dates throughout the year, with the earliest one tracing all the way back to last April.

Despite the change of plans, Wayne’s Young Money camp is still set to release its debut compilation album on December 21. —Elan Mancini

    I don’t understand this
    Are these guys scared Lil wayne is gonna tank?
    Or is the album wack as hell?

    Only time will tell

    Please don’t start hating on Wayne
    He definitely ain’t nowhere close to being the best rapper alive but the junkie has skill!

    they just need to not release this trash. noone wants to hear lil wayne try to make a rock album, all the songs suck. just drop that gay autotune crap and go back to rapping. but for real go cop that clipse album, they deserve to do more than 30-35k. that is the sickest album to drop yesterday. stop sleeping and support hip hop, or else its gonna for real die. broke fools

    they keep changing the released dates, then they get leaked and the album doesn’t get enough sales…

    “Birdman made an announcement…” “but reps for Universal did not reveal a specific release date.”

    ^^^ This

    Wasn’t it dropping next week? It ain’t coming out. The label never wanted it to. The response for those 2 leaks must have been horrible.

    And I see Baby trying to get it released, to collect the royalties while son is on vacation…

      I said it’d get pushed back as soon as I heard they were tryin’ to put it out w/ the YM compilation album…that shit has had a terrible response like you said it ain’t got no good buzz basically b/c tha nigga is a poser just cuz you can strum a few cords on a guitar don’t make you a rocker…Baby gonna get them royalties regarless

    they mean 2014… when boosie hits the club circuit again

    It’s obvious Wayne regrets this whole rock thing. He should have just dropped it so he can move on to Carter 4. BTW I’m starting to think this Young Money album might sell some units. Hey, wouldnt it be funny if it outsells “Before I Self Destruct”? LMAO

    Isn’t that around the time when he’s supposed to start his “sentence”?

    SDN marketing, @ it’s finest…

      Exactly. Oops, sorry about the release date but here’s Young Money to put in your Xmas stocking as a conciliation.

      If we’re lucky maybe they will use a jail-themed photo for Rebirth’s cover.

    hmmm, l give the guy props for experimenting with his music, but its clear that the album is trash, why not just releaseit now or just shelve it !

    This msg is @CAM: How the fuck can you honestly sit there and call the Clipse any form of whack. Every album or mixtape that they’ve dropped has been fire, and recieved tons of critical acclaim. If you ask me, the clipse have quietly but heavily influenced “drug rap” that most of these fake thugs and studio gangstas try to use today. Matter fact, have you actually listened to a full length Clipse Album? Everybody is on wayne and Jigga’s dick. Don’t get me wrong, them niggas r nice (with the exception of wayne being a bit overrated), but the industry is more than them niggas. I’m not like a HUGE CLIPSE FAN, BUT I KNOW SKILL WHEN I HEAR IT!!!!
    CLIPSE AND WHACK SHOULD NOT BE USED IN THE SAME SENTENCE.
