Lil Wayne Fans Launch Online Petition for Album Release


Fans of rapper Lil Wayne have launched an online petition in a bid to convince label bosses to release his long-delayed album, THA CARTER V.

The hitmaker took to Twitter on Thursday to reveal the album was no longer set for release next week and blamed his longtime mentor and Cash Money Records boss Bryan ‘Birdman’ Williams for the hold-up.

In a message on the social networking site, he wrote, “To all my fans, I want u to know that my album won’t and hasn’t been released bekuz (because) Baby (Birdman) & (record label) Cash Money Rec. refuse to release it (sic).

“This is not my fault. I am truly and deeply sorry to all my fans but most of all to myself and my family for putting us in this situation.”

Lil Wayne also expressed his desire to be released from the label, but his fans have since launched a campaign on ipetition.com in a bid to hear his new material before a potential legal battle begins, according to AllHipHop.com.

The petition post reads, “We would like to take the time to request that Baby & Cash Money Records consider releasing Lil Wayne aka Lil Tunechi new album for the holidays (sic).

“We the fans have truly been looking forward to a new release and hope you will reconsider your decision not to release it. Thank you so much in advance for your consideration.”

The petition aims to attract 1,000 signatures and has scored just over 350 at the time this article was published.
