Lil Wayne recently dropped a mixtape as a treat for fans who are eagerly awaiting his album, Tha Carter V. The New Orleans-bred MC makes two things clear on the project: his beef with one-time father figure Birdman is real and far from over, and he doesn't expect Cash Money, the label he's always called home, to remain standing once the dust settles.
Sorry 4 the Wait 2 features collaborations with Drake, Christina Milian, Shanell, Mack Maine and 2 Chainz, and finds the rapper beasting over popular tracks like Beyoncé's "Drunk In Love," OG Maco's "U Guessed It" and Rae Sremmurd's "No Type."
Most of the furor surrounding the 17-track mixtape centers on Lil Wayne's freestyle over O.T. Genasis's hit single "CoCo."
"Who kept this s*** together? N**** / me, that's who / Cash Money is an army /I'm a one-man army / Now I don't want no problems, I just want my money," raps Weezy, who accuses Birdman of being two-faced on the track.
He also reminds us that even without Cash Money, he still has a squad full of A-list talent.
Wayne first revealed issues with his long-time recording home late last year with a series of tweets accusing Birdman of holding him hostage and apologizing profusely for Tha Carter V's delay. The album was initially slated to be released on Oct. 28, but the date came and went with no sign of the LP. At the time, Wayne said it was because he had recorded too much material, and the label had decided to release the project as a double-album. The next announced release date, Dec. 9, passed with little fanfare. As of now, the project appears to be pushed back indefinitely.
