This might be one of the most confusing releases ever. So it said tomorrow would be the release date but over the weekend amazon was selling it. In fact I had pre-ordered this cd and according to my shipping status they have sent this cd. However, it now says they do not know a release date and every other source I've gone too they do not know the release date. So I guess my question is what exactly is amazon sending me. I guess we will find out soon and I'll let everyone know on this board.
Mine seems to be at the post office where I live and is in transit. So hopefully whatever they are sending will come in today. If they do decide to deliver it; I will tell you all what they sent. After doing some more research it looks like Wayne wasn't happy with the cd not getting enough hype and positive feedback so he decided to cancel its release to perfect it. Considering we all had these shipped I guarantee he had already produced them and sent them to the distributors and dealers like Amazon waiting for a release date. Amazon probably gunned it too fast or didn't get the memo in time and some of the copies were shipped. If anyone gets a copy I guarantee it will be a very limited edition and quite collectible.
mine got returned customer service had no clue as to why,but they gave me five dollars off my next purchase and promised a refund when it got back to them,would have rather had the cd,lil wayne should have kept this release so close to chirstmas he would have had bigger sales then when ever he decides to dump the cd
So the cd came in the mail today and it is the Rebirth cd. Considering some of you got it and didn't get it, I think it's safe to say they cancelled the release of the cd in the middle of sending it them out or amazon screwed up in the release date. My guess is the distributor told them to stop. A few things about the deluxe version of the cd. The cover is the image they used before with Wayne on a couch with a white guitar and not the new one with him in a blue hooded sweatshirt on a stool. Also, I was pretty sure the deluxe had 3 extra tracks but the titles on the back only lists 2. Hopefully the last one is hidden or something. Overall there are 14 songs (including bonus).
Just googled and I was right, Amazon jumped the gun on this one. Only 500 rebirth cds were released! These could be really collectible if they decide to send the remaining copies back to the distributor. Here are some links
Yes, this is confusing. When I preordered it, it was $9.99 and it was on it's way to me this week and now is being sent back to Amazon. It appears the price has gone up to $14.99 in the meantime. I want my $9.99 price!
Layde I haven't listened to it yet. But how many songs would you say are rock and rap? Or are they all rock-rap mixed together? But the cd is that bad huh? No wonder he wanted to take it back. I guarantee he tweaks the songs a bit or never releases it and it will become a mixtape.
