Lil Wayne puts out new mixtape as free download
'Sorry 4 The Wait' precedes release of rapper's new album 'Tha Carter IV'
The tape is available from Weezythanxyou.com and features freestyle raps over remixes and reworks of tracks by the likes of Beyonce, Drake and Big Sean.
Its title references the numerous delays that have held back the release of Lil Wayne's next album proper 'Tha Carter IV', which was initially due out in May, then June, before an August 29 release date was finally revealed.
The tracklisting is:
'Throwed Off' (feat Gudda Gudda)
'Grove St. Party' (ft. Lil’ B)
'Sorry 4 The Wait'
'Inkredible Remix' (feat. Thugga, Raw Dizzy & Flow)
'Run The World, Girls'
Earlier this week, the hip-hop star announced that 'Tha Carter IV' was now "totally done" after he delayed its release to work on his lyrics.
He also revealed the influence that late rapper Tupac had on the first single from the record, 'How To Love'.
"It was like Tupac had 'Keep Ya Head Up' and it was a message to women and little girls across the world just to keep your head up even though things are hard. That's what my song was," he remarked.
