Young Money's Shanell aka SNL previously hit up SOHH to discuss Weezy's delayed album.
"It 'does' exist and it's incredible in my eyes," Shanell promised. "I really think it shows another side of Wayne and Young Money because everybody's on it. Everybody's been able to express somewhat an alternative side of themselves so it's gonna be interesting, it's going to be different. There's a lot of rapping, but there's a lot of other stuff. I just think the world is ready to hear some different music. He's a creative person and you can't rush creativity and as you saw even with Tha Carter 3 album, that was pushed back and pushed back and pushed back but when it came out? It blew up and it was a great album so I would say, you know, good things come to those who wait." (SOHH)
Initially slated for a mid-December release, the project will now land in stores days before Christmas.

Wayne's Rebirth was reported to showcase a few rock-based features by artists including Travis Barker and Lenny Kravitz.
The set will be packaged as a dual disc along with the Young Money collective, We Are Young Money. In addition to Infamous and Correa, producers Cool & Dre and Develop also have tracks on Rebirth, while Fall Out Boy is featured. The latter comes after their first collaboration on Fall Out Boy's 2008 release, Folie a Deux. Lenny Kravitz, Travis Barker and Young Money/Cash Money artist Drake also appear on the set. Although the album is mostly rock inspired, with Lil Wayne playing guitar on most of the tracks, the leaked song, "Fix My Hat," produced by Drew Money, is one of the few rap tracks that made it onto the Rebirth set.

Rebirth will now drop Tuesday, December 22nd.
