Mack Maine Gives Reasons Behind Lil Wayne's "Carter IV" Delay

The Young Money president reveals why Wayne's upcoming album is pushed back, and gives fans a new release date.

As previously reported, Lil Wayne's Tha Carter IV was pushed back to a June release date.

Mack Maine has revealed that the album will now hit stores on June 21, and that the reason behind the delay is Wayne's need to place finishing touches on the LP.

"He's still perfecting a few things, he's a perfectionist ... changing a few lines," said Mack Maine to MTV News. "We also have a huge record that wasn't done yet. We're in L.A. right now. We have a little studio time and it should be done probably by Monday."

Maine also pointed to waiting on collaborators as a reason for delay. "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," he added. "So we had to push it back."

    Who cares! Hiphop is getting more gay and gay nowdays. - drake - lil wanye - kanye - ice cube first rapping about burn hollywood burn and now making wack ass family movies. I thougth you said burn hollywood burn Cube???? - Ice T rapping about copkiller and now playing a cop in LA Law - Lil B calling his album I; m Gay - 50 Cent signing Pauly D and doing songs with Justin Timberlake. I thought you was hardcore 50 - Snoop doing songs with Willy Nelson and Katy perry. - rappers like Game and Rick ross fabricated a fake image of being gangsta and so on!

      @ Hahah: be honest he's got a horrible voice. and back in 1998/1999 nobody was checking for him and now people act if he is top 5 dead or alive.. Did lil wayne make a ready to die or illmatic? Hell no! So why are people acting if he is that good. he is just as fake as rick ross. this dude was already rapping when he was 15 years old so when did he do all that gangsta shit? When he was 10? lol.

      @unclesam Do you even know what ironic means? Because it certainly don't seem like it. @Jason Shut up he ain't that good.

    • unclesam

      I hope that comment was ironic. If not, there is something terribly, terribly wrong with you.

  • phillip

    oops i meant If I Die* Today

  • phillip

    they are in LA doing a "huge" record. who wants to bet that Dr. Dre is somehow affiliated with this "huge" record? as long as there's no more records like "If I Day Today" on the album, i think it'll be good. just wish he'd go back to Carter 2 style. that is by far his best album

  • Jesus

    "uhhh yeah we did a major hit song noones every done before and its gonna smash summer, its called "Lollipops" ya remember that little track two years ago? well heres the sequel... well.. wayne changed a verse. and used more auto-tune, but....its uhm... dope? dont fire me Wheezy i said what you wanted"
