Lil Wayne to release new album online after MTV VMAs

                                      
     Lil wayne will release new album "Tha Carter IV" immediately after MTV video music awards and it will be available on iTunes and other digital outlets. The physical album will hit stores Aug. 29.
"Tha Carter IV" features collaborations with Drake, Cory Gunz, Rick Ross, Busta Rhymes and others.
Lil Wayne says he's making history.
"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," he said in a statement Monday.
      The strategy is similar to that used by Jay-Z and Kanye West for their best-selling "Watch the Throne" collaboration, which was available exclusively on iTunes for several days before hitting physical retailers. It debuted at the top of the charts last week.
Lil Wayne is up for two VMA awards. The show is scheduled to air live from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
