Rep Denies Lil Wayne's 'Rebirth' Pushed Back for Summer Release


Lil Wayne


The 'Prom Queen'-led album which is Lil Wayne's first foray into rock genre is still set for February 2 U.S. release with the inclusion of new tracks.

A spokesperson for Lil Wayne has thrown cold water to rumor suggesting that the rapper's forthcoming album "Rebirth" has been pushed back to June 22. The publicist said the effort will still hit the U.S. market on February 2.

Led by single "Prom Queen", "Rebirth" is Weezy's first rock-inspired album. In December 2009, it was reported that its 500 copies have been prematurely shipped off to Amazon customers, causing it to leak six weeks prior to the release date.

When it arrives across the country a week before Weezy is sentenced for an illegal weapon possession, the album is confirmed to be different from the leaked ones. Young Money boss Mack Maine tweeted, "Leaked 09 Rebirth isn't going to be 2010 Rebirth."

Before being slated for February release, "Rebirth" was rumored to come out on December 21, being paired with the Young Money compilation album "We Are Young Money". The effort which boasts Weezy's duets with Drake, Nicki Minaj and his other crew debuted at No. 9 on Billboard Hot 200.
