The CEO of Cash Money explained to XXL that it was Lil Wayne’s idea to delay his album release and Nicki followed suit.

“[Wayne]’s so much an artist like that,” Birdman says. “He change his mind a lot. He feel like he want to do more. Really, they be on they call. It ain’t on me. So whatever Wayne want to do, Nicki want to do. I leave that up to them. I don’t decide on dates and everything. I don’t do none of that.”

Karen Civil broke the news on Monday that both album release dates have been pushed back. There is no word on when “The Carter V” will be released, but “The PinkPrint” is set to drop December 15.
