A Universal Motown rep claims Lil Wayne’s rock-influenced solo project, Rebirth, will be released in 2010 after multiple delays and setbacks.

According to reports, a confirmed 2010 date has not yet been revealed.

So, you thought you might be able to hold Lil Wayne’s Rebirth in your hands before New Year’s? Psych! A Universal Motown rep tells the Music Mix that Weezy’s long-delayed rock-influenced follow-up to 2008’s Tha Carter III has been pushed back yet again from its planned Dec. 21 release to an unspecified date in 2010.

Rebirth: American Star featuring Shanell aka SNL, Prom Queen featuring Shanell aka SNL, Ground Zero, Da Da Da, Paradice, Get A Life, On Fire, Drop The World featuring Eminem, Runnin featuring Shanell aka SNL, One Way Trip featuring Kevin Rudolf, Knockout featuring Nicki Minaj, The Price Is Wrong.

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 was later announced to be in stores days before Christmas.
