Nearly 11 years ago, Lil Wayne presented fans with an apology of sorts for delaying his highly-anticipated Tha Carter IV album. After all, he was on an unprecedented sprint at the time — releasing both albums and mixtapes to satisfy his fans’ seemingly insatiable cravings for his music. 

He released Rebirth and I Am Not A Human Being in 2010, and planned to follow those albums with the fourth installment in his Tha Carter series. While Cash Money Records held onto the album, Wayne — perhaps foreshadowing moments in his later career — took matters into his own hands and dropped a 10-track mixtape titled Sorry 4 the Wait. 

Now, Sorry 4 the Wait is heading to streaming platforms. Wayne made the announcement in an Instagram post Saturday (Jan. 8). “On all platforms soon!!!” he wrote. “Pre save link in bio.” The mixtape includes features from Gudda Gudda and Lil B, but is predominantly a collection of raps over popular (at the time) hip hop beats.  

On Sorry 4 the Wait, Tunechi spits over Miguel’s “Sure Thing,” Drake’s “Marvin’s Room,” “Racks” by YC and Future, Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep,” “Tupac Back” by Meek Mill and Rick Ross, and others. 

In November 2021, Young Money president Mack Maine told Billboard that a mixtape was “coming, probably in January.”

“Shout-out to the fans. If we could, we’d put all of [the tapes] up in one month,” Mack Maine said at the time. “It’s a tedious process. It’s not like a one-day thing. But we’re going to hopefully get all those mixtapes [up].”

The first Wayne mixtape to hit streaming services  was No Ceilings in August 2020. Sorry 4 the Wait appears to be next in line, and hopefully The Dedication and series and Da Drought tapes aren’t too far behind.
