Album: Tha Carter IV (2011)
Play Video


  • Tha Carter IV includes a set of three tracks titled "Intro," "Interlude" and "Outro" which bookmark the beginning, middle and end of the album. All of them utilize the same Willy Will-produced beat.
  • This album closer features verses from Bun B, Nas, Shyne and Busta Rhymes but strangely not Wayne himself. The final contribution is from Busta Rhymes who told MTV News, "I actually close out Tha Carter IV. I'm the last voice you hear on Tha Carter IV. It's special because I didn't know that's what [Wayne] was gonna do with it."

    He added: "When we did the joint, he didn't really tell us how he was gonna put it together. All I knew was that when it was done, it was me, Bun B, Nas and Shyne, and I was the last voice to be heard on the album, so I feel honored for that."
