Seems like Lil Wayne fans are about to receive some bad news.
’s new album, “Tha Carter IV” was supposed to be released on May 16 but has been pushed back to June 21. Wayne
The delay was done in order for
to add the finishing touches. Young Money boss Mack Maine told MTV that “He's [ Wayne ] still perfecting a few things, he's a perfectionist ... changing a few lines," Mack explained to MTV. "We also have a huge record that wasn't done yet. We're in LA right now – we have a little studio time and it should be done probably by Monday." Wayne
The boss also confirms that the album’s contributors slowed down the recording process, as they had to wait for the material to be sent to them. "If you calculate all of that, by the time we would've finished mixing, we wouldn't have met the [original] due date to turn in the album," Mack continued. "So we had to push it back."
Mack Maine also confirmed that the previously rumoured album cover that leaked is real. "The same day it leaked out, we had just approved the cover that morning. Soon as we approved it, it leaked out within two hours,"
Well, I know that Lil Wayne will sell and this is a risky move since “John” is slipping down the charts and “6 Foot 7 Foot” peaked at #9 in January on the charts. With his recent touring, I’m sure he’ll have a packed promotional schedule before the album’s released. Let’s hope that his next single is just as radio-friendly as his first. I really love "6 Foot 7 Foot" and I'm anticipating this album.
