Lil Wayne has confirmed details for the release of his new album.

Tha Carter IV, the follow up to his 2008 breakthrough album Tha Carter III, will be available on 15 December.

The New Orleans rapper, real name Dwayne Michael Carter Jr, also plans to release his much talked about rap-rock album Rebirth before the end of 2009.

Birdman, CEO of Wayne's label Cash Money Records told MTV: "Both will be out before 2010. We're looking to take over the game completely, flood the market. The Grammys are ours next year."

Tha Carter III sold more than one million copies in the first week it was released in the US last year.

He debuted tracks from Rebirth at a series of gigs in London in early October.
