Lil Wayne's Rock Album Receives Title and Date


Lil Wayne's Rock Album Receives Title and Date


In three months to come, rapper Lil Wayne will release 'Rebirth', his new project on rock music.

Lil Wayne's venture to rock music is imminent. The rapper who announced back in 2008 that he is shifting gear from Hip-Hop to be a rock star will release his rock-themed album "Rebirth" on April 7, his publicist confirmed to MTV. The first single is "Prom Queen" which will be streamed on MySpace on Tuesday, January 27 right after his concert at San Diego's Cox Arena.

Earlier this month, Canadian actor/rapper Aubrey Drake Graham a.k.a Drake said that he contributes a song to Lil Wayne's rock album. He said, "Wayne's coming out with a new album, it's a rock album. A complete rock album. I have a song on there. It's something different in just that whole [Kanye West] '808's & Heartbreak', just throwing individuals off."

The news of Lil Wayne's rock project first erupted when the rapper himself declared during BET Hip-Hop Awards that he is picking up guitars. "People see the guitars and they wanna call it rock and roll. I plug up the bass, I plug up the electric, I plug up the acoustic - it's not really rock and roll, its just great music I'm doing right now," he announced.

This would be the project that was formerly called as an extended version of his huge-selling "Tha Carter III".

    Lil wayne really needs to stick with rap because to me and 65% of a typical rock community thinks he is a disgrace and i am not saying this to be racist because there are many "black" singers/songwriters for the rock genre and really it originated from blues but for today lil wayne should stay in his place, and you can flame me all you want but its pathetic how you have to use such language influenced from "Lil Wayne" ~

    Hey I use to not like lil wayne . but i heard his dj song and gave him the benefit of the doubt and look now. couple years later he is being asked to hit every single and keep producing albums. I think he is musically in tune. He is now trying the most important music instrument out there. the guitar . I think him trying out a new genre is perfectly ok . his song prom queen probaly dont mean nothing to you guys but for the men out there who try going for the prom queen and got rejected and still made something of their lives . I think this song reflects there life perfectly. Hes a great artist and hes not being influenced by some mainstream or corparate jerks...who ever they be. i dont care . Call me ignorant . Stop judging someone by what you want them to stick to. Its kinda fucked up you guys decide his musical career. Respect and imbrace the new traditions , our world will only change more we have to be open to new ideas ...thats it

    Lil Wayne Plays Rock now because when he was 12 years old he was playing with his fathers gun and shot himself in the cest when his family found him they called 9-1-1 the first officer who arrived on the scene found Lil wayne with out a pulse he performed CPR and took him to a hospital. He saved his life. Then years later he saw the officer at a bar and asked him does he remember him, he said no Wayne told him his name and the cop said " I know of you but i don't listen to rap" the little wayne told him about when he was 12 an he remembered the so now he makes rock.

    evryones an idiot sometimes. who gives a shit if he wants to rock or rap. its not like it makes a difference. he still has a shitload of money so hes not losing anything. either way you look at he still making money and shitting on him isnt gonna do shit. And how come people are saying hes terrible. if he was terrible he wouldn't have "a milli" fucking retards. pull ur heads out of ur asses. Its all a business in the end.I personly like his music and if u don't then don't listen to it. By putting up gayass hater messages ur just fueling the fire. So sit down and shut up. If you have notin good to say don't say it at all. And hes not ruinin music hes diversifing it. Just like fucking everything else in this goddam world. But some of u don't know that and don't want it. If a black man can be president why can't a black guy rock????

    lil wayne better not get on any rock radio stations...because what he's doing isn't rock. it's pretty much all you could expect out of a rich rapper who can't sing or play guitar trying to do rock. CRAP. And plenty of people will buy it not because the music's good...but because people are stupid as fuck and don't know any better. Any person who knows anything about rock who has heard prom queen knows that it's half-ass crap and wouldn't get anywhere if Lil Wayne was a nobody. Lil Wayne should stick to polluting rap instead of rock. Some people on here said if you don't like it don't listen to it. Well that would be a lot easier if lil wayne wasn't massively overplayed on the radio and TV when one of his shitty albums come out. Meaning good music will be played less. Thus, lil wayne has reduced the quality of music played on radio and TV. Thanks a lot lil wayne. It takes more than a name to make good music!!!

    well its not going to be rock n roll like anyone else he's an individual and if people want to classify what he is doing as rock and roll good for you. Its not like hes going to get a whole different fan base or something (hes not) hes just broadening his horizon and well... making a few milli in the process.

    Look if you dislike or hate on Wayne as much as you say…..then how come you are taking the time out of your day to disrespect someone who is expanding the horizon of "Southern Rappers" ? The only conclusion is that you wish you were Wayne…….and that’s that!! Wayne has never had an album flop……from the Hot Boyz to his solo shit. 50 cent on the other hand has…..what did his last album sell……damn I cant even recall the name of the record. Is G-unit still even considered anything. I mean without the master mind of Eminem and Dr. Dre…….50 is nothing. Oh and if you don’t like Southern Hip Hop then I guess you don’t like Hip Hop b/c it’s the only thing producing in the Hip Hop game!!

    Feb 27, 2009

    lil wayne is shit is always gonna be shit he's a wanna be blood and its pathetic, the video with him playing guitar is just horrible he cant play it for shit, he mumbles on the mic and as for up to date rock music listen to metallica or how about some motley crue maybe even some AAR but there is no way wayne is gonna have a good rock album and oh yeah real rockers actually play the drums not a beat machine and they actually play the guitar not get samples from other rock songs and theres a REAL bass not a keyboard so once you stupid ignorant motherfuckers figure out what real rock is then you can comment on it but until then listen to your horrible horrible music and unless its a real rapper such as jay-z, jadakiss, talib kwali etc. dont say shit about it, long live REAL hip hop and REAL rock gotta get rid of all this dancing bullshit and dope fiends mumbling on the mic its already ruined the game so there you go suck a dick P.S. i for one have never seen a real gangster kiss another man thats NOT his father, take a second think about it

    Feb 12, 2009

    ok lets get one thing straight. dont go sayin weezy the best cuz he aint. i wont lie hes got a good voice and some decent lyrics. but take a look at eminem. u cant compare them because eminem STILL TO THIS DAY has the sickest freestyles and flows, checkem out and ul see waynes freestyles are like a retarded kids algebra test results compared to eminems. eminem, now THATS rapping on a whole nother level. because eminems smart, he uses multi syllable rhymes and hes got vocabulary. something wayne doesnt. eminem would tear wayne the fuck apart. hes good but he aint the best. i find it funny how his GOOD shit was before he was even famous when he was with hot boyz. then he comes out with bullshit and everyones quick to jump on his music. shows how many dumbasses there are out there actually puttin money in his pocket he definatly didnt deserve an award, wow just cuz he puts out alota of songs? THAT ALL talk about bullshit. he says the same shit over lika million times. that aint music, thats called MAKING MONEY OFF OF DUMBFUCKS WHO BUY HIS SHIT. his rock shits ok. but like kanye i can see it being a huge failure he sucked in the song he did with fall out boy. hes trying to hard

    man lil wayne had a natual talent for rapping and thats what were all used to, if he had a natural talent for rocking he wouldnt be where he is today. hes just trying something different, something nobody has successfully done before. maybe his new shit needs some work, you cant expect him to get the transfer from rap to rock right on the first try. besides theres worse rock out there. im still behind wayne you all can take what you want from him but hes got all my support still.
