Will Lil Wayne’s Rebirth ever surface? The album is currently scheduled for sometime in late November, but any date attached to the record is subject to change. It’s a curious state of affairs, especially as Wayne scored the biggest selling album of the year in 2008 with Tha Carter III.
Now, the hip-hop star is blaming his workload on the delay of the album. Wayne claims that his Young Money label is sucking up all his time, and he has been too busy working with other artists to focus on Rebirth. “Honestly, I’m just starting up this Young Money label and I’m trying to get my artists down right,” he told MTV.
“Once I got that together, then I could work back on me,” he said. “I’m a very humble person. I know once I get to it, I’mma get to it. So like I was saying, it’s Young Money time, so making sure my artists get their just due.” There’s clearly a lot more to this story than meets the eye, and it seems like Wayne would be wise to just shelve Rebirth and move on to other projects.
