Every great rap album needs its posse cut, and since anticipation is high for the upcoming Carter IV, Lil Wayne is not taking it lightly. The Young Money rapper has enlisted the likes of some of rap's most respected lyricists for a collaboration on his next LP.


According to, Weezy is teaming up with Nas, Shyne and Jadakiss for a song that will conclude the album. Dropping on August 29, Tha Carter IV is Wayne's fourth installment in a series of albums that have helped solidify his place in hip hop.
