In the aftermath of his fallout with Cash Money, Lil Wayne dropped his long awaited, “Sorry 4 The Wait 2” Mixtape yesterday.
I, for one, have a love/hate relationship with Lil Wayne’s music; which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I appreciate what he offers as a Hip Hop artist and his effort to remain true to who he is and what he stands for. Commendable. I just hate how predictable he can be at times. This, however, was unforeseen. Leaving Cash Money? Dropping an independent mixtape?
For years, we always associated him with Cash Money. We would have never predicted the day we saw him part ways with what helped nurture his career. We also always anticipated his mixtape releases. His lyrical proficiency paired with his uncanny wit and delivery was unique to who Weezy is as an artist.
While the split was unfortunate, that didn’t stop Lil Wayne. Today, via DatPiff.com, he released “Sorry 4 the Wait 2” and let’s just say, it was worth the wait.
He opens the mixtape with a “free-mix” (freestyle/remix) to O.T. Genasis‘ “CoCo.” Now, everyone knows the amount of dislike I have for this song but Lil Wayne serves the production justice.
“Sorry for the wait, until the wait is over,” he proclaims.
The mixtape continues with 16 more tracks with undeniable heat that Wayne consistently, and effortlessly, supplies in his projects. Not to spoil the mixtape, I’ll leave you with this:
“I’m sippin’ lean outta glass nigga / All I got is Young Money, no more Cash nigga.”
