For an artist who has been lauded as an originator, Sorry 4 the Wait sees Wayne sounding more like his contemporaries than himself.

After a year and some change of waiting for a new Weezy project, Lil Wayne drops Sorry 4 the Wait, a mixtape that acts as a precursor to Tha Carter IV. It feels like a Mayweather tune up fight: a lot of anticipation but sees a fighter/rapper who merely goes through the motions.

From the jump, “Tunechi’s Back” fails to separate itself from any of the Meek Mill remixes. Wayne takes a smash hit and sounds more Ross than Weezy. It’s sadly a trait that plagues the mixtape. For an artist who has been lauded as an originator, Sorry 4 the Wait sees Wayne sounding more like his contemporaries than himself. Without a smash on the project, Sorry 4 the Wait fails to live up to the expectations that the No Ceilings series created.  

The lack of unique remixes and a massive amount of sex punchlines sees Wayne missing more punches than he lands (See "Marvin’s Room" or "Gucci Gucci" ). The albums biggest appeal is that Wayne admits that he hasn’t embraced a sober life. On “Rolling” he says “I’m talking big money, I’m talking heavyweight, I cut down on the syrup, Now I’m in better shape,” and throughout the album he mentions pills, patron and other lifestyle choices that he swore off. If the lack of sobriety doesn’t grab your interest a Jay-Z line, “gotta kill witnesses 'cause Free's beard stickin out” from “What We Do” finds its way on "Grove St. Party" in the way of “Gotta kill witnesses 'cause Baby's car red." While some may argue that it isn’t a blatant jack, at best it feels lazy.

Sorry 4 the Wait feels like an underwhelming tune up fight for a pound for pound champion. Whereas the mixtape circuit once was where Weezy attempted to back up his claim of being the best rapper alive, it is now a place that sees anything but his best work. He makes a point of saying Sorry 4 the Wait on nearly every track, and while the tape may suffice some fans, August 29th can't come quick enough. With a lackluster offering on Sorry 4 the Wait, Tha Carter IV now carries the burden of deciding his career trajectory.

DX Consensus: "Just a Mixtape"

Listen to Lil Wayne Sorry 4 the Wait


  • Gregg

    Lol the fuck you niggas smoking? Sorry for the wait was way better than no ceilings and tha carter 4. His flow is crazy and if you couldn't relate to the punchlines then that sounds like a personal problem. Like people saying Tupac sucked because they live in the suburbs and never experienced his problems. Tupac is good and Weezy is good in another way. Tupac had depth with words, Weezy is more how he says it then what he actually says and is less deep, but his delivery is one of the best. You people are hypocrites though anyways, dude on drugs you tell him to sober up he sobers up and you want him back on drugs. He raps about materialistic shit and having fun and you want a conscious rapper. He becomes conscious and you say he is boring or get offended.

    I give it a 4 star only because this mixtape wasnt suppose to come out really its only cause the carter 4 kept getting pushed back but anyway it dident live up to my expectations and ive never said that about a wayne project hes my favorite rapper hes the best so I guess he was just playin around on this mixtape my fav track is "sorry for the wait but I know how big carter 4 is and I know wayne and he doesnt play on his albums this album for is his defining moment I can't wait.

    I downloaded this mixtape a few weeks ago, but I only bumped it for like the first few days... very little replay value. I'm hoping this is all part of a grand scheme to drop a mediocre mixtape then blow us away with an incredible album.

      That statement would have been absurd a few years ago, but sadly it is very true now. Drake is better lyrically at this point.

  • juiceman17

    had a lot of potential, he used some nice beats to freestyle with, dude just came up a little short (for his standards) but as far as the industries' standards go, its a pretty sold mixtape. I hope this is just a warm up for C4

  • Anonymous

    He fell off. I hope he did this on purpose or didn't have the time to go in like he usually does. I personally think it's impossible to not be good like you used to. I know he has the skill, he just doesn't try as hard anymore. I mean just look at the length of these songs. 2:30 tops maybe? No Ceilings had songs above 4 minutes. This may show shortage of time or that he just didn't feel like giving his all. Either way we need to get him to be a hard worker again.

    it's so funny reading these comments that Lil Wayne "Fell Off" He's still killing other artists on their own track, such as Hustle Hard Remix

  • look@itmyway

    Lil Wayne fell off and its funny to see all the wayne stans talk like C4 is Going to be something great let's see every track that wayne has done post prison has been garbage he got murked by everyone on look at me now even the biggest wayne fans say they haven't been feeling his shit lately I've listened to no ceiling I use to get hi all the time and that was one of my preferred mixtapes to listen to when I was blazed but how can you defend Wayne when every I mean every Wayne fan says mixtape weezy is better everyone knows that he wouldnt be considered the rapper he is today if it wasnt for his mixtapes he claims to be the best rapper well jay-z made the blueprints in a week and in a week the only thing wayne can make is this shit then yall niggas want to say its only a mixtape it shouldnt matter what he says on it cuz it was given to his fans for free well if it wasnt for his mixtapes then he woulldnt be who he is and if you like your favorite rapper to give you half assed work then thats you I'd prefer to listen to J.Cole and have him work hard on a mixtape and be pleased with it and C4 is going to suck his last two albums were garbage let's see INAHB was suppose to be leftover tracks and this mixtape is suppose to be a preview and with all his recent work you can tell C4 is goin to be garbage

  • Abbbba

    Lil wayne best rapper???? Never. Best rapper alive is definetely Jay-z, kanye,J cole, eminem, Nas and eminem in dat order.

    • LordLamickTheEmperor

      Ross is in no way the best rapper alive... He makes good quality music and that's something undeniable. Only thing that saved dude from Officer Ricky was the quality of the music. But the list is wack. You have Drake as the 3rd best rapper alive? You listened to thank me later? Sit in a room with no exits and loop that shit over then keep saying he the 3rd best rapper alive... kmt. And I'm ignoring the fact that your list pretty much shouts out 'THISDUDEDON'TLISTENTOMUCHHIPHOP' since you've not only missed out living legends, but underground royalty as well... But just for the list. Cole, Lupe, Kendrick Kamar and Kanye eating Ross. Ross aint dropped a classic yet, Ye dropped 2/5, arguably 3/5 classics. And J. Cole's mixtapes eating rosses albums.

It gives the artist a chance and music listeners a chance to share thoughts and constructively pin point pros and cons of artwork. I love open forums and I respect anyone in music simply because it's a dream that someone made to reality. No ceilings was crazy, this mixtape makes me wonder what will his album sound like. I truthfully could listen to Carter III all the way through. That was a bad ass album.

  • Christian Hasley

    this mixtape is horrible, the punchlines are lazy and the whole style that garnished him the "best rapper alive" title is nowhere to be found, sub-par by far, will not be buying The Carter IV even though i have the other 3 on my iphone, good enough doesnt cut it for an a grade lyricist

  • ZacH

    wtf is he talking about its acually good

  • Tank

    This mixtape suck, but I bet the album is gonna be pretty good. I'm not a fan either.

  • ilexx

    I think this is a great fucking review... everybody crying about hate is just being dumb. I am a Wayne fan and have been for years and this mixtape SUCKS! My friends and I have discussed it and u cant go from calling yourself "the best rapper alive" and then years later put out some half ass shit. The mixtape is average at best, it doesnt compare to No Ceilings and thats the point. What everybody is missing is that Drought 3 was a stand out mixtape of his and when he decided to make an original mixtape with No Ceilings ppl wanted it to live up to Drought 3 and it DID! Thats why ppl keep comparing Sorry 4 The Wait to No Ceilings because thats where the bar is for Wayne since he dropping Rebirth and I Am Not A Human Being....... but Wayne failed to have any impressive lines on this mixtape and NO stand out tracks. Thats a fail and as a fan I have no problem giving him a 2/5 for this bullshit tape..

    • Anonymous

      Always disliked Wayne for his absolutely horrible delivery and nonexistant flow. The review is good. I give him the benefit of the doubt lyrically but everything I've heard from him has sucked lyrically aswell, apart from his verse on Look At Me Now, and the verses on 6 ft 7 ft.

    • kf

      i agree too....he dont got any standout tracks....i alwayse been a fan of him since hot boyz but on this mixtape there isnt one hot banger smh....thats not like him....funny thing was he was complainin about beats too...mabe he not tryin smh

    • #4sols2daflow

      I completely agree, I have been a wayne fan from 500 degreez and squad up, and the money wayne gets the bigger is image gets the worse him music get's and yes im disappointed. My brother and I talk about it all the time and he seems to thing that he's just chillin that he has no one to fear. which is true when it comes to money lol. but rappers drake is smashing, yeah I said tit drake is killin them. My nigga hot spitta is killin them and wayne is a produced of curren$y life at 30,000 feet showed e that. I just hope that carter 4 is something like 1 or 2, him being hungry to spit. Wayne raps need to grow up lol. sorry 4 the mixtape shoulf have beent he name. but hope he will get it together. I'm ready to here if he has evolved yet.

    Look at it like this..if you dont like country are you gonna listen to it??..hell no! And your sure as hell not gonna review it. This site should be only reviews from people that listen to wayne and what they think of this album. Not you panzees that say shit over the internet to make your dick bigger that the three inches it already is. I believe he is successful...he started young and just look where hes at now..the top! Through his own hard work.

    • Anonymous

      Hard work does not get you to the mainstream I hate to tell you. It involves being heavily promoted and autotuning your choruses generally. Wayne has the worst delivery and 2nd worst flow in hip hop history (soulja boy is even worse in that area) and some of the laziest lyrics ever (Although I will admit I've heard 3 verses that were actually pretty good.) Terrible freestyler, lacks creativity, etc... He's not talented. He even had ghostwriters for alot of his stuff....

    • ilexx

      I am sorry but if u cant see the stupidity in your comment then I dont know what to say... If u dont listen to country then u shouldnt be reviewing it BUT this is Hip Hop and I am sure the reviewer listens to Hip Hop so he is entitled to review it. It doesnt matter if Wayne is somebody he listens to or not. U cant make the average FAN review a piece of work because they are gonna have problems being objective... Therefore u let somebody who appreciates Hip Hop as a culture and is a journalist/writer review the work...... They did and they basically said everything I felt..... It SUCKS! lol

  • Michael Straight

    u should really get out and party more bro everyone i chill with likes almost all the songs on the mix tape bad review man

  • Mu

    2.5/5... This mixtape is just average and for someone of Wayne's caliber, average = failure. Nevermind the fact that he did it in a few days. As an artist, you have a responsibility to put out quality because everything to release is a part of your legacy. I didn't like this mixtape, but I can't say I expected anything great either. Based on what we've heard from him recently, Wayne just sounds like he thinks he can step in the booth and nothing but hot shit will be the result. I'm definitely not a hater, I have every Wayne album and almost every mixtape. To all the people who think Wayne can do no wrong, people like me express our displeasure with him because we've heard flashes of greatness from him in the past and we want to root for him, but he just hasn't been able (or willing) to sustain it. Maybe he should actually start writing rhymes cuz his punchlines are lazy and predictable, and he's not even trying to be creative with wordplay or rhyme schemes. If Carter IV sucks, it will be official that he's fallen off. I HOPE thats not the case p.s. Fail for HipHopDX for not rating. They clearly don't think this is any good, but didn't want to piss off Wayne and his label

Hes succesful and you know it. He made this in three days. Lets see you do that...then you might be ablebto talk

      Or cuz the dudes aren't that well known... And alot of underground fans like Eminem (some just like his older stuff) and Jay-Z (most just like his older stuff). That and underground fans usually get the albums and don't need YouTube (note I didnt say buy although I do buy them) Mainstream fans seem to follow their artists as much so they'd hear their new stuff on Youtube/the radio and go buy/download the single.

    I love how y'all still listen and support this pop hero. He a certified fake blood....y'all must be like 18 or some shit to find Wayne real. He def can spit and lyrics every now n then r on point but I cannot and will not cosign his fraudulent fake ass. Y'all need to open yal eyes cuz. Wayne def wouldn't be caught in bmore poppin that fake shit. He a pussy and a video on YouTube shows him getting punked by some crips. Hahaha. Shit is classic bitch move shit. Hahaha

YOU MUST LEARN

      @Anonymous #2...26 years old shouldn't make me “ol school”. I very much agree with you that not all new artists are bad and not all older rappers are good, but this is exactly what Illmatic88 is speaking on. It's a matter of awareness for the history of the game. Honestly, in the 90s and early 00s we didn't have such easy access to hip-hop websites, torrent/download sites, Youtube, etc. If someone said such-and-such was dope you went out and bought the album hoping it was as good as they said it was. We had word of mouth and relied on radio shows like Tony Touch, Mr. Cee, and Funkmaster Flex (before he became a social butterfly/car guy), mix-tapes from DJ Clue, Kid Capri, Kay Slay, DJ Swift, Doo Wop, Big Kap, etc., and magazines like The Source. NOWADAYS it’s easy to get any song or cd from any year. I take advantage of it, you should too… Also, Kendrick Lamar is a raw artist with a lot of potential, hopefully he finds a label home that allows him to mature properly. Really, Wayne lucked out with the support cast he had. Baby, Mannie Fresh, as a member of the Hot Boys, etc. He started with them and didn't really gain national success until, what, The Carter in 2004. I'm guessing he worked his ass for those 7 or 8 years. New rappers need these type of mentors that will help them, as is life.

      stfu you ol school mo'fo's lol lil wayne's wack but not all new school artists are wack just like not all ol school artists are da shit, Nas is overrated. Listen to this youngin from LA Kendrick Lamar, he's dope.

      ^^Jimmybond you hit the nail right on the head man. I'm in med school but I used to be a high school teacher the last 2 years and this new generation does not ahave a damn clue. Most are ignorant and are not even optimistic and curious about what started hip hop, who were the creators of certain styles and who laid the foundation for these new rappers. They are a bunch of SHEEP! Scared to go against popular opinion and always follow what the radio says and what the rapper on 106 and Parks #1 video says. If he says "he is the greatest rapper alive" they will agree! I used to always get kids that argue over Lil Wayne and Kanye being the best rappers and I used to ask them the same questions, like "have you heard of Nas? Wu Tang? AZ? Pete Rock and CL Smooth? Slick Rick? just to name a few and they would look at me like I was from another planet. One time I wore my illmatic shirt to class with the picture of the album cover and the same student that on Lil Waynes nuts asked "why do you have a picture of a black kid on your shirt?" I was like "WHAT???" It's beyond ignorance, its just stupidity and lack of respect. I was 10 when illmatic dropped and all that golden era rap was pure creativity and innovation to the fullest. Every one that was on the radio was dope as hell, EVERYONE! They had their own style and their own story to tell. And then even at my age I would have old timers come to me and say "yeah you don't know nothing about Rakim, KRS, Whodini, the Juice Crew, and instead of saying "who the fuck are those guys" I would actually do my research and check out them because they were before my time and I grew to like a lot of their stuff. I still bump "know the ledge" by Rakim and I can honestly put him in my top 5 and argue why he is there instead of spewing some nonsense like record sales, swag, and all that other BS. The problem these days is that there is no timeless classic material. Back then, you would wait in a record store in a line, get the cd rush to your house and throw it on the stereo and listen to it straight through and at the end you would know if it was a classic, you would just shake your head thinking "damn did this dude just create this? This is crazy!" You hardly press the rewind button on these new records anymore and thats whats wrong...the creativity is gone, the love for the artform is gone. All it is is just a paycheck to these rappers and these kids buy into it like these guys are lyrical genuises. There is no such thing as criticism these days, one hot ringtone makes a whole album hot. Back then you would hear something like "it was written" which is dope as hell and then say "yeah but it aint no illmatic" and that was harsh criticism because back then we would base rappers off their potential and their skills, now its just ringtones and shit. Its a sad state

      Although I don't care for your jokes to start the post, you are correct in saying these younger folks really missed out on some real, good hip-hop. It's funny, I was talking to these high school kids about who's hot nowadays and they mentioned names like Big Sean, Mac Miller, Drake, and Lupe as being the "it rappers". I asked them if they knew of artists like KRS-ONE, Keith Murray, Redman, The Roots, Black Moon, 9th Wonder, Blackstar, AZ, GangStarr, CNN, Gravediggaz, Beastie Boys, Canibus, Journalist, Scarface, etc and they said no, never. So I asked if they ever listened to Boot Camp Click, The WU (as a group and individual albums throughout the 90s and 00s), Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, anything from No Limit, anything from Cash Money from the "bling, bling" era, the Clipse, Dogg Pound, or anything from the death row era...again, they said no.....Then it hit me, like J.B. said, "when the new generation think about Jordan, all they remember is when Iverson crossed him". Except nowadays there are maybe two generations between that 90s rap (when things like sitting with the tape recorder next to the radio, joining colombia house to get like 12 CDs for the price of 2 then quitting and doing it again or stealing the newest CDs from Circut City, Best Buy, or Strawberry's were the thing to do). So, to your point, it is unfortunate these younger generations will never get to experience the magnitude of how great hip-hop was back then...My apologies for rambling but it seems like this is a common issue on this site and in rap discussions in general.

      I wish you were alive... none of these wankstaz would be on right now. They killed one of the greatest and gave us ignant mofos who don't make any sense at all.

    why is Hiphop DX taking this mixtape so seriously ? Wayne said he did it a couple weeks. niggas acting like the album gonna sound like the tape. Take it for what it is, a mixtape full of trunk music.

    • Anonymous

      you're an idiot, stop making excuses for lil wayne. Yea it's a mixtape but considering it's a recording and not say a random freestyle it's VERY wack. I swear Gucci got some mixtapes better than his garbage

    • Anonymous

      Thank you for being the only sensible person...a mixtape is a mixtape u don't spend more than a few hours on it...for just freestyling on other niggas beats i think he killed it

    Sorry 4 the WACKNESS (Mixtape Review)

  • Wtffffffffffff

    How can people like this piece of trash ? I used to listen to Wayne when I didnt listen to lyrics.. my lil brother of 4 years old can think of better punchlines..



  • Jake

    The tape sucked compared to no ceilings, it should have been called "sorry 4 listening".

  • Anonymous

    I liked No Ceilings better compared to Sorry 4 The Wait. Maybe it's the instrumentals, maybe it's the lyrics. Either way, Wayne can still bring the heat, it just all depends on the track

  • Anonymous

    I dont know who reviewd this mixtape but you should be fired not only are the beats he choose for this tape aggresive... His sound is aggressive and confident as well... Wayne hasn't ever been at this level... Every song on hear is great... Bottomline when yur on top everyone's out to get you... Reviewer .... U think he use to many sex lines but... On marvins room he starts by sayin.. "ima oj simpson that pussy" thats not only clever but, hilarious at the same time... Hip hop is an art... Respect the kraft...

    • The MH

      You're a fucking simp if you believe that was a clever line.

    • Royce59_SIC

      dickriding at its finest... but ur rite waynes never been on this level... cuz hes never been so god awful b4

    • Lol

      He doesn't even have nice metaphors. The MAJORITY of devices he uses are similes. "Ima oj simpson that pussy" is hardly clever. I'm sorry, but it's just not. It's ridiculous how you're trying to make him sound better than mediocre...

    • Anonymous

      yeah yeah his got nice metaphors that's all

  • Jason Williams

    Its ok, def not No Ceilings. Wasn't planning on buying his album any way but I like to see dudes winning, so I hope he can keep his spot near the top of the game.

  • Wesley Lee Bynum

    Great review. Sorry for the wait was a let down..

  • LumpBeats

    I agree with the review on the real. I'm old as hayell (32, lol) but I'll admit I was happy to download this the other morning. Good thing I put some of those new Kendrick Lamar tracks and some other ish on the cd cuz this ish was kinda booty. Fk te co-sign on the Kreashawn btch and the Lil B dude too... I woulda rather waited for the Carter IV than to hear this mediocrity

  • bored desk job haver

    Only about 3 tracks worth listening to.

  • WeezyBaby

    Good tape but worse than expected, the Best Rapper Alive could have done much better than this. And what the hell is Lil B doing there? His part is horrible.

  • Anonymous

    lil wayne is a great rapper but not the best look up crooked I..

  • Paul David

    A Really weak mixtape. Anyone calling it otherwise is a Wayne stan...real shit.

  • Timothy Green

    Great work by Weezy to keep us patient until the Carter IV comes out. SFTW is a good mixtape kind of a reminder of who the best rapper alive is. On the No Ceilings level. I love it.

  • jacob mayo

    lil wayne is the best rapper alive...real one can get on his level

  • toolisto

    How about you review a fuckin album like Trae Tha Truth Street King instead of bulshitting with mixtapes. No hatin on Lil Wayne, just do your job!

  • Anonymous

    wack ass pop rapper

  • Dustin

    To add to that. If you didnt read tunes lastest interview he explains his raps. He says he raps about whats on his mind. So you get a differnt story evey song. Thats why you cant go back to his old albums and be like "hey why isnt this like that tape". Besides that dumb to do anyway. no two albums are gonna be alike.

  • Dustin

    I completely disagree with this review. Everybody holds wayne to his last work to his new work. This tape isnt no ceilings, its a competly difffernt project. Its like no ceilings but its not the same plot. No ceilings was a 21 song mixtape that weezy took his time to create and picked big name songs.S$TW was made in about a week and it is still better than anybody elses work out there now. On no ceilings he focused on sex and such things. On S4TW he focused more on his killer, murder side. To be honest i like that side of wayne. When wayne raps about murder you can picture every word he says. like in rollin' "my gat bang, your hat hang, i ride off with mack maine" Then he jumps on adele's rollin' in the deep?! that song was pure fire. no other rapper would of touched that song but tune held it down! this mixtape was not no d2 or d3(because those are his best works) but this is a very good mixtape to hold us over for a few more weeks. If the title doesnt explain it tune is "sorry 4 the wait" carter 4 on the way.

  • John Mullins

    I agree with the review. mixtape was pretty weak. now i'm questioning the carter 4. really hope it isn't wack too

  • Mike Sokolowski

    best mixtape evermade.

    • envy

      I completely disagree. This is his worst mixtape. As the review stated, his best work appeared when he was trying to prove something, like the Sqad Up mixtapes, Prefix, Suffix, Dedication series, etc. This mixtape sounds tired and forced.
