(NEW YORK) -- Rapper Lil Wayne's new album Tha Carter IV has had its release date pushed back, according to MTV.
The disc, one of the most anticipated rap albums of the year, is now scheduled to arrive June 21 instead of the planned date of May 16. Young Money president Mack Maine told MTV that the rapper is "still perfecting a few things," adding, "He's a perfectionist." Additionally, Mack says that waiting for all of the album's numerous guest stars to submit their parts has added to the delay. He says, "By the time we would've finished mixing, we wouldn't have met the [original] due date... so we had to push it back."
To tide fans over, Mack says that a completed video for the song "If I Die Tonight" will arrive in two weeks. He also says Tha Carter IV's next single will be like Lil Wayne's 2008 hit "Lollipop," in the sense that, Mack explains, it will "be liked by the masses."
