So it seems The Throne’s sales strategy of releasing the album to iTunes much before the physical release has rubbed off on another major artist. reports that Lil Wayne will be releasing his new album Tha Carter IV to digital stores at midnight on Sunday following his MTV VMAs performance. That would mean the album will be accessible to fans a few hours before the physical stores open on Monday morning, August 29th. Below is Weezy’s statement:

    “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.”
