Lil Wayne Album Delayed Until 21 June
His Young Money boss explains why the release has been pushed back…
"He's still perfecting a few things, he's a perfectionist ... changing a few lines," Mack explained. "We also have a huge record that wasn't done yet. We're in LA right now – we have a little studio time and it should be done probably by Monday."
He added that the album’s many contributors had slowed down the recording process, as they had to wait for them to submit their material. "If you calculate all of that, by the time we would've finished mixing, we wouldn't have met the [original] due date to turn in the album," Mack said. "So we had to push it back."
The Young Money president also confirmed that the album artwork, which leaked this week, is real. "The same day it leaked out, we had just approved the cover that morning. Soon as we approved it, it leaked out within two hours," he said. The image shows Wayne aged about five with tattoos on his face.
Tha Carter IV is due on 21 June.
