Are you suffering from Weezy withdrawal? Feeling sad, despondent or irritable because of it? Well, Lil Wayne wants you to know that he feels your pain, and he’s prescribing you his mixtape to cure your blues. To tide you over until his much-delayed ninth studio album, Tha Carter IV (out Aug. 29), Lil Wayne’s mixtape, aptly titled Sorry 4 The Wait, drops June 13. And lucky for us, the first track, “Tunechi’s Back,” is already online.
Over the same slow, menacing backing track that Meek Mill used for his Rick Ross-featuring “Tupac Back,” Tunechi raps in his smoky rasp about just how very “back” he is, turning to old familiar themes: “f*** bitches, get money…mission complete.” Eloquence personified, y’all.
Weezy also directly addresses everyone’s frustration with his album’s delay and does something quite rare for the boastful rapper: He apologizes! “Wish I could take a shot of Ciroc with ‘Pac/Sorry for the wait til my album drop,” he concludes.
You’re forgiven, Lil Wayne. Now, can we make all apologies come with a mixtape?
