Lil Wayne postpones album's release date

U.S rapper Lil Wayne has postponed the release of his forthcoming album by a month in order to allow himself more time to work on the tracks. 

Mack Maine, the president of Young Money, revealed to MTV News that the 'Lollipop' star wasn't happy with the work as a whole and needed more time to tweak the songs:

"He's still perfecting a few things, but he's a perfectionist...changing a few lines"

The record, entitled 'Tha Carter IV', was due to be unveiled on May 16, but now has a release date of June 21, and Maine continued:

"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 probably be done by Monday."

"If you calculate all of that, by the time we would've finished mixing, we wouldn't have met the due date to turn in the album. So we had to push it back."

Lil Wayne, who's just filmed the video for his collaboration with JLo, is almost finished with his 'I Am Music II' tour and you can watch his recent performance of 'Look At Me Now' here:
