Lil Wayne's Rebirth Leaked....
Young Money Records Attempts Damage Control As 'Rebirth' CD Leaks. Label Promises New Version Of Album For 2010
With Lil Wayne's rock LP, 'Rebirth' spreading across the internet like wildfire due to Amazon.com mistakenly shipping 500 copies out early. The Young Money camp has gone into full damage control mode.
Using Twitter to get the message out, Young Money booking agent Karen Civil, @KarenCivil tweeted on yesterday (December 16) "Leaked 09 Rebirth isn't going to be 2010 Rebirth.."
Mack Maine, the company's President then retweeted the same message via his account @MackMaine.
I find it very hard to believe the album can be completely re-tooled given the short amount between now and the probable beginning of Lil Wayne's prison sentence on February 9th. Which would also rule out pushing the album back further than the scheduled release date of February 1.
In my opinion, it's highly possible the label is either bluffing and the album comes out as it is now with maybe a couple of new songs or the project gets scrapped altogether.
I also expect to see a pretty big lawsuit filed against Amazon by Cash Money/Universal Motown Records.
Amazon now lists the release date as December 31,2020, whatever that means.
