Lil Wayne's Rebirth Gets Official Release Date, Tha Carter IV Pushed Back to 2010

Lil Wayne's <i>Rebirth</i> Gets Official Release Date, <i>Tha Carter IV</i> Pushed Back to 2010
Lil Wayne's long-delayed rock crossover album, Rebirth, finally has an official release date. It will be in stores on December 15 via Universal Music Group, almost a full year after lead single "Prom Queen" was posted to Lil Wayne's MySpace.

At the time, the album was due out back in April, but after the single's poor chart performance, it was pushed back until now. Guests on the album include Fall Out Boy front-man Pete Wentz, Lenny Kravitz and rising megastar Drake.

Originally, Lil Wayne's album Tha Carter IV was also slated to come out before the end of the year. In a recent interview with Billboard, however, he revealed that the project has now been pushed back to 2010.

Don't expect Weezy to tour much in support of either album, as he recently pled guilty to charges of illegal gun possession. His hearing is in February, at which point he is expected to receive a one-year jail sentence.
