After much delay, Lil Wayne 's highly-anticipated rock album, "Rebirth," is now slated for a Dec. 15 release date according to the Universal Music Group website. The set will be packaged as a dual-disc along with the Young Money  collective, "We Are Young Money."
Originally scheduled for April 7, the first single off the set titled "Prom Queen," produced by Infamous and Andrew "Drew" Correa , reached no. 15 on the Billboard Hot 100. Second single "Hot Revolver" debuted at No. 33 on the same tally.
In addition to Infamous and Correa, producers Cool and 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 à 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.
In related news, the new Mary J. Blige  album, "Stronger," is due out Dec. 22, while the new Redman  album, "9 1/2," is confirmed for a Dec. 15 release date from Def Jam, according to the Universal Music Group website.
