Lil Wayne Pushes Back “Tha Carter IV” Again!

For a second time the highly anticipated eighth studio album, Dwayne’s fourth installment of Tha Carter has been pushed back from June 21 to August 29th. Based on the sound of his latest leak, this delay is a wise decision. So the fan will have to wait 2 more months for the musical invasion of what’s in Wayne’s world.

But to keep us at bay the next single to release from the album will be hitting the airwaves around July 4. That song has yet to be determined.
Until then let’s continue to enjoy his protege’s Nicki Minaj’s “Pink Friday” and Drake’s “Thank Me Later”.

Wait a minute, news just broke that T Pain will never be using the Autotune technology to enhance his vocal abilities as an artist. But wasn’t that his claim to fame? Can he survive on his vocals alone? I don’t know y’all I’m scared, this may be the end of him as we know it.

“I vow right here, right now, to never use Auto-Tune again,” T-Pain told in an exclusive statement. “I’m onto something that I think is bigger and better called ‘The T-Pain Effect.'”

The Grammy award-winning producer and platinum selling rapper has partnered with Izotope, an audio technology company, which is the exclusive provider of the new ‘T-Pain effect. T Pain has inspired many legends in the game to experiment with auto tunes since his nationwide breakthru with it such as Janet Jackson, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg and numerous others.
