After months of speculation following the massive international success of Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter III album, Cash Money boss Birdman has confirmed that Lil Wayne will be dropping a double album featuring both his Rebirth and Tha Carter IV projects in December.
Wayne had announced that he had a ‘surprise’ for fans in a recent interview with DJ Drama. Although Birdman then revealed that, “he’s coming with the rock album and Tha Carter IV. It’s gonna be a double disc and the Young Money album all on the same day.”
UPDATE: Contrary to Baby’s original statements regarding the Lil Wayne releases, Weezy himself has now clarified that he will not release Tha Carter IV and Rebirth as a double album. The superstar rapper stated in a recent interview that ‘it won’t be given like that.’ He continued to explain, ‘trust me, it won’t be given like that because Tha Carter IV deserves Tha Carter IV. And that’s that.’
Weezy then clarified, ‘Rebirth may come as a double [album] which comes with the Young Money All-Stars disc. Yeah, so it may be the Young Money All-Stars and Rebirth.’
UPDATE: Lil Wayne’s Rebirth double album is now due to drop on February 1st 2010.
