Lil Wayne's Rebirth, which was supposed to land in stores December 15th, has been pushed back yet again to February 1st, meaning it will hit shelves nearly a year after its original release date of April 7, 2009. The delay was revealed in a Twitter post from Cash Money label boss and rapper, Bryan "Birdman" Williams, Billboard reports. No one from the label was available for comment at press time.
The set is to be packaged as a double disc, along with the Young Money Entertainment LP, We Are Young Money. This weekend, another track from the LP, "Da Da Da," popped up online just days after the Scarface soundtrack-sampling "On Fire" leaked. The album's first single, "Prom Queen," surfaced last spring with "Hot Revolver," the second single, hitting last March.
"Rebirth" is said to feature guest spots from Fall Out Boy, Lenny Kravitz, Blink-182's Travis Barker and Young Money/Cash Money artist Drake. "On Fire" and "Da Da Da" are available as single downloads on iTunes.
As we reported last week, the "Rebirth" track list posted on Amazon.co.uk sports both "On Fire" and "Da Da Da," along with a collaboration with Eminem called "Drop the World." The Amazon page also suggests a deluxe edition of Weezy's disc will also be available with extra bonus tracks, but additional details were not available.
In October, Wayne dropped his No Ceilings mixtape, and he's reportedly hard at work at the follow-up to his blockbuster Tha Carter III.
