Fans of ROD Wave were left disappointed when the rapper refused to remove his latest album Beautiful Mind on schedule.

Fans now are asking what happened to the 22-year-old artist’s new album, which was meant to be released on June 3, 2022.

Why was Rod Wave’s album ‘Beautiful Mind’ not released?

Rod Wave has not officially stated why the album has yet to be published, though fans have surmised that the postponement may be due in part to his arrest in May and subsequent dismissal of those charges.

The rapper was jailed on a felony charge of violence by strangulation after his ex-girlfriend made allegations against him.

However, the charge was dismissed two weeks later after his attorney characterized the alleged occurrence as a “mistake.”

“This case was a miscommunication between a lover and boyfriend,” Rod Wave’s attorney, Bradford Cohen, said to Rolling Stone at the time.

“Mr. Green was arrested as a result of the misunderstanding.”

However, as word spread that the promised LP would likely miss its deadline, music fans expressed their displeasure on social media.

“Rod Wave really wounded me not releasing that album yet, welp the bridge I go,” one wrote.

“That dude Rod wave did not drop the record, got me sick like when Meek said he was releasing the deluxe to Expensive Pain,” another added.

“Rod Wave is really trying to make us feel his pain by not releasing the record,” a third grumbled.

What is Rod Wave’s real identity and who is he?

Rod Wave, whose true name is Rodarius Marcell Green, was born in St Petersburg, Florida, on August 27, 1999.

In 2016, he launched his music career with the launch of his mixtape Hunger Games Volume 1.

He published a new mixtape, PTSD, after signing with Alamo Recordings, which includes the song Heart On Ice.

The song soon became viral on YouTube and TikTok — reaching number 25 on the Billboard Charts 100.

He released his album Ghetto Gospel the following year, which debuts 10 on the Top 200.

Pray 4 Love and Soulfly, his two subsequent albums, also charted in the top ten, and his fourth album, Beautiful Mind, is slated to be released in 2022.

Billboard has praised the performer for his “candor and shrewd ability to tug at the listeners’ heartstrings” since his debut.

In an interview, he mentioned Kayne West and Kevin Gates as two of his main influences.
