Sorry 4 the Wait is a mixtape by the New Orleans native rapper Lil Wayne, named as an attempt to apologize for the continued delay of his ninth album, Tha Carter IV. Wayne said the mixtape would have about ten songs and be similar to No Ceilings, with him using other artists' tracks and making a cover track. It was released for digital download on July 13, 2011, and received generally positive reviews from music critics.

The sequel to the mixtape was released on January 20, 2015, as a response to the ongoing delay of Wayne's album Tha Carter V and his disagreements with his Cash Money label.

Background[edit]

Cortez Bryant delayed Tha Carter IV back until August 29, hence worrying Wayne about his fans' patience. The Mixtape was worked on secretly until Young Money president Mack Maine tweeted "BREAKING NEWS!!! Lil Wayne mixtape “SORRY 4 THE WAIT” coming soon!!!!! #C4boom".[7] Rappers Lil B and Gudda Gudda were featured on the mixtape. "Tunechi's Back" was the first track released off the mixtape on July 8. It samples "Tupac Back" by Meek Mill featuring Rick Ross. A Deluxe version was released on July 13, and the official mixtape, containing a total of 12 tracks was released later the same day.
