However, Tha Carter IV has now been given a release date of 29th August to allow the 6 Foot, 7 Foot star more time to perfect the record.

Speaking of Wayne's LP, Young Money president, Mack Maine, told out US Team: "He's still perfecting a few things, he's a perfectionist ... changing a few lines,"

He added: "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."
 
The 28-year old previously revealed that his new single, How To Love, gives him "goose bumps", explaining that the track shows he is much more than just a rapper.
