This Sunday Lil Wayne fans will be able to purchase Lil Wayne’s new album, Tha Carter IV earlier than expected. Just announced, Weezy’s fourth installment of Tha Carter will see a digital release before it’s physical release, directly after his MTV VMA performance on Sunday. Tha Carter IV will be available on iTunes, Amazon and other digital outlets on the 28th of this month. The physical album will hit shelves the day after, August 29th. Are you ready?

UPDATE: Lil Wayne has released a statement below.

“I am extremely excited to be the first artist to utilize such an amazing idea. I hope that I can open the door for others.”

Oh, so we’re supposed to act like you didn’t steal Watch The Throne’s release plan, Weezy?
