The album was originally thought to be the re-release of his triple-platinum album Tha Carter III. However on January 23, Wayne told MTV that the album will not be a re-release, but will be his rock album debut. He also stated the album will be released on May 19, 2009. The first single has been announced as "Prom Queen" and the track is produced by Infamous and Andrew "Drew" Correa. The song made its official debut on January 27, appearing on Wayne's MySpace page. Wayne performed the single live for the first time during a concert in San Diego, which was streamed live on AT&T’s FREEdom of Choice and Mobile Music Facebook pages that evening. "Prom Queen" rose to #15 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Wayne claimed that the inspiration to switch from his usual rap to rock was Kanye West's new image and how artists these days are expanding their true talents like no other generation. Also, Wayne spent the summer with Kid Rock and was taught how to play the guitar.
Lil Wayne stated he collaborated with Fall Out Boy for his album, while he also lend his vocals for their Folie à Deux album. Avril Lavigne is also set to have a cameo in his album.
Lil Wayne will reportedly pay homage to the Beastie Boys, and a rap version of Coldplay's "Viva La Vida".
