We’d like to apologize to Drake. When the Toronto based rapper noted in an interview earlier this month that he would be appearing on Lil Wayne‘s upcoming new rock album, yes rock as in rock ‘n roll, we were a bit skeptical. Alright, at that point, we honestly believed there was a better chance of Kanye West changing his name then the world actually being greeted by the sounds of Weezy jamming on his fender.
But on the same day Kanye changed his name to Martin Louis the King Jr., Lil Wayne has confirmed that he is in fact releasing a rock album and it will be ready to hit stores come April 7th. While details pertaining to the effort still remain a bit sketchy, it will reportedly be entitled Rebirth and will be headed by its first single, “Prom Queen”, which will conveniently be available for stream beginning tomorrow.

No word on what this means for Tha Carter IV, which Wayne has reportedly been at work on since late last year, though given that his tour dates will soon be coming to a wrap, he’ll have plenty of free time on his hands in the coming months.
Lil Wayne 2009 Tour Dates:
01/27 – San Diego, CA @ Cox Arena
