Sorry 4 the Wait 2 is a mixtape by American rapper Lil Wayne, released on January 20, 2015 to compensate for the continued delay of his twelfth studio album Tha Carter V.[1][2] It is the sequel to Wayne's Sorry 4 the Wait (2011) mixtape, which served for the same purpose during the delay of his ninth album Tha Carter IV (2011). The mixtape features seventeen tracks, with 13 remixes and 4 original songs, along with guest appearances from Drake, Christina Milian, Mack Maine, 2 Chainz and SnL.

Sorry 4 the Wait 2 has received generally positive reviews from media critics and fans seeing it as an improvement compared to his previous projects. Daily Trojan described the mixtape as impressive, noting Wayne's "purpose and drive".[7] Trevor Smith of HotNewHipHop awarded it 72%, saying "He's certainly not back, but he never fully 'lost it' either. Part of what made Wayne great has been there throughout, but it shines through more regularly here than on his last few tapes, in punchlines that can be funny and legitimately surprising."[5]

Pitchfork Media gave a more mixed review but still said "If there's a word that describes Wayne's rapping on Sorry 4 the Wait 2, it's 'engaged.' Wayne remains really good at the physical act of rapping, even if now you can hear the gears lurching into action whenever he switches into a double-time flow." The review notes that "[t]here aren't any performances here that will have you dragging the originals to the recycle bin.".[4]

Music videos[edit]

A music video for "Coco" was shot and released on March 18, 2015.
