Hip Hop fans around the world were shocked when they heard that Lil Wayne's next album, Rebirth, would be a rock album [click to read].

Skeptics can rest assured now, however, as Bryan "Baby" Williams, Cash Money Records co-CEO and mentor to Wayne, has told VIBE magazine that those reports were not accurate - at least not entirely.

Its not a rock record, said the Birdman in an interview. Thats what I think people are getting misunderstood. When you speaking about a rock record, you think hes got a guitar and everything, but its not that. Its going to be some of those types of beats, but its just great music. I dont think no artist can do what he about to get done. My son is a rock star.

He can rap, he can sing, hes just an artist, he continued. I dont think no one will ever be greater [than Wayne] because I dont think no one puts in the time or the quality. If someone do come along, can you imagine what hell have to do? He got to put out on thousand mixtapes, do a thousand records [and] sell 100 million records. 2Pac, Jay-Z and Biggie didnt get to the shit Waynes done.

Rebirth, thought to have been possibly shelved at one point [click to read], is now set to hit stores on June 16.
