Lil Wayne’s ‘Sorry 4 the Wait 2′ Wins Best Mixtape in the 2015 The BoomBox Fan Choice Awards
Mixtapes are a dime a dozen these days, but ever so often there's a tape that drops that commands the attention of the people. Lil Wayne's Sorry For The Wait 2 proved to be one of those projects and has been voted Best Mixtape in the 2015 The Boombox Fan Choice Awards. But Weezy's victory came after what was a tumultuous year for the Young Money honcho.
After a lukewarm 2014, during which he failed to release his much anticipated album, Tha Carter V, due to various delays, Wayne shocked the world in December of that year by bashing his longtime mentor Birdman and Cash Money Records on Twitter. Claiming the company refused to release the project, the "Believe Me" rapper apologized to his fans for the long wait.
After filing a $10 Million lawsuit against Birdman and Cash Money Records, the gauntlet was thrown and Weezy announced that he would release a special mixtape for his fans called Sorry 4 the Wait 2. Released Jan. 20, 2015, the mixtape may not have been the album fans had been patiently waiting for, but more than made up for the delay as Lil Wayne demolished every track on the collection.
Rapping over popular instrumentals, including O.T. Genasis' "Coco," Rae Sremmurd's "No Type" and Bobby Shmurda's "Hot N----," Weezy F. Baby let it be known that his time on the bench didn't diminish his lyrical skills over the course of the tape's 17 tracks.
The fans' appreciated Wayne's gift and that's why he won Best Mixtape in the 2015 The BoomBox Fan Choice Awards.
