Album delays happen. Sometimes it's sample clearance issues. Sometimes it's laziness on the part of the artist. Sometimes (most times) it's the label wanting to impose more formulaic hit-single songs on the album. It's a part of life. Usually, albums only get pushed back a few months (and that's usually from summer to Q4 a.k.a. "Tax Write-Off Season"). But sometimes, like in the case of XV, the wait can be five years and counting. So congratulations to Papoose for getting The Nacirema Dream released after seven years.
