Sunday night’s VMA telecast will come with an added bonus at the end for some Lil Wayne fans. Once the ceremonies are over, Wayne’s long awaited fourth edition to Tha Carter series will hit all digital retailers (iTunes, Amazon, etc) before the physical release hits stores the next day (August 29th).

Wayne’s currently touting that he’s the first artist to make a digital release available before a physical copy but that would be mostly inaccurate due to a similar strategy used by Jay-Z & Kanye West for their recent Watch The Throne album.
