A rep from Lil Wayne’s parent label Universal Motown has confirmed that Weezy’s “Tha Carter IV” isn’t expected to see the light of day till August 29. This is the second delay for the album after it was originally pushed back from May 26 to June 21.
No official reason has been given for the decision to push the LP back again. Prior to its new release date, Young Money president Mack Maine said the project’s delay was in relation to Wayne’s decision to perfect its music.
Last month, Weezy performed a portion of the album live and promised the LP would provide a surprise for fans upon its release. The third single from the album, “How To Love” is indeed something else. It has gotten a lot of love nonetheless. His next single is said to hit the airwaves around July 4.
