Don't Sleep: Necessary Notables
Mixtape: Sorry for the Wait
Key Cameo: Lil B, is the only confirmed guest so far.
Real Spit: Nobody likes album delays. Lil Wayne is well aware of this fact. SO, to make up for the multiple pushbacks of Tha Carter IV, Weezy will be dropping a new mixtape, aptly titled Sorry for the Wait, in the coming weeks.
"The mixtape is called Sorry for the Wait, and it's because [manager Cortez Bryant] pushed the album back so, sorry for the wait," Weezy told Shaheem Reid in outtakes from an interview for XXL's July/August issue.
At the time of the interview, which took place on June 13, the Young Money CEO revealed that he was only three songs deep on Sorry but was in back in mixtape mode and planned to include guests like Lil B on the project. According to Wayne, the tape will be formatted in a similar way to his 2009 project No Ceilings and will feature the lyrical dynamo rapping over other artist's tracks.
The tactic allows Wayne to jump on songs that he didn't get the chance to, in an attempt to put his own stamp on them. "Yeah, it's gonna be just like No Ceilings, taking the f--- over a n---a's beat. You know what it is, killin' n---as sh--," he said. "Make a n---a pissed, mad as a mother----er he ain't call me to get on that mother----er originally. Like, 'F---, if I'd have took this n---a call this n---a's song wouldn't be hotter than mine!"
As it stands now, Tha Carter IV is scheduled to drop August 29 after being pushed back from its May and June release dates.
