Lil Wayne, Chris Brown Prep New Mixtapes

Lil Wayne and Chris Brown are showing appreciation for their fans by releasing new mixtapes over the next few months.

Before his highly-anticipated album Tha Carter IV arrives on August 29, Young Money’s MVP will whet appetites with a new mixtape called Sorry 4 the Wait. YM president Mack Maine confirmed the news. “BREAKING NEWS!!! Lil Wayne mixtape ‘SORRY 4 THE WAIT’ coming soon!!!!!” he wrote.

Weezy’s “Look at Me Now” collaborator Chris Brown also announced that he is pondering another mixtape before his next album. “Before my Fortune album drop ima put out a hip hop mixtape. Well, still kinda debating,” said the “Deuces” singer, who released three mixtapes in 2010.

Both artists have a big summer ahead. Lil Wayne will launch the second leg of his “I Am Still Music” tour in July, while Chris is scheduled to perform at the BET Awards and “Today” show concert series on July 15.
