Lil Wayne Drafts Nas, Shyne & Jadakiss for Tha Carter IV Posse Cut

Lil Wayne plans on ending his new album, the fourth installment of his highly successful Tha Carter series, with a bang. XXL has learned that the stream-of -conscious lyricist drafted other wordsmiths, Nas, Shyne and Jadakiss for an all-star posse cut that will close out the LP.

Contributing writer Shaheem Reid, who interviewed Weezy for XXL’s July/August 2011 cover story, had a chance to preview the disc and got a rundown of all of the set’s guest stars. As expected, Wayne has songs with his Young Money crew, along with Busta Rhymes, Bun B, Tech N9ne, Cee Lo, John Legend and Swizz Beatz, Bangladesh, Polow Da Don and Boi-1da all provided beats.

Wayne’s Tha Carter IV is scheduled to hit stores on August 29. As previously reported, the appetizer to the affair: a mixtape entitled Sorry 4 the Wait, will come out this Wednesday, July 13.

XXL’s July/August 2011 issue, featuring Lil Wayne, hits newsstands nationwide tomorrow. Fans can read an excerpt from the story on later today. —XXL Staff

    Should be very, very interesting. I just hope Shyne doesn’t use that new voice of his.

    I have been getting a lot of mixed feelings with this album. Since Wayne got out of prison, his lyrics and flow has never progressed since The Carter III year. Which is disappointing. Even though his lyrical delivery falters, his business savvy never fails. I think the collaborations (except shyne) will bring a very good flavor and bang to the LP.

    weezy was pretty tight about 2 years ago but those days are long gone…maybe once he gets back to smokin and drankin he’ll return to some form respectability…till then…I ain’t even downloading his shit

    what you talking shyne came out with like 5 songs and thier all amazing, the reason nobody heard of them is because the media controls what we hear, he is one of the most inspirational rappers out their. whoever hasnt heard his new stuff might as well trade places with a three legged cat, because ur as useless as the cat

  • queenie

    where do i find the new music from shyne? i thought the album was delayed…
