Lil Wayne's Rebirth Pushed Back to February But Leaked by Amazon
Published Dec 15, 2009With a number of rumoured releases on the horizon, it's becoming difficult to keep up with rapper Lil Wayne. As we told you recently, his long-anticipated, and likely terrible, rock album, Rebirth, was finally slated for release on December 15. Unsurprisingly, that date came and went without any sign of the record.
Last week, a number of sources revealed that Rebirth had been pushed back to a February 2010 release date. Presumably, his label is using Wayne's prison sentencing, which is scheduled for February 9, as a marketing technique to push the album.
If you've heard lead single "Prom Queen," you know that we all might be better off if the album never comes out. Those who still want to hear it, however, should note that it might be possible. The Daily Swarm points to an Amazon customer who had his pre-ordered copy of Rebirth delivered to him this week. The snafu means that tracks from the album are sure to leak soon, and Amazon users who pre-ordered the disc should keep a watchful eye on their mailboxes.
