In 2013, unfazed by criticism that a controversial verse he contributed to Future‘s “Karate Chop” — he made a reference to Emmett Till, a black teenager gruesomely murdered in 1955 by white men — was in poor taste, Wayne released a second volume of I Am Not a Human Being. The album debuted at number two and featured the singles “No Worries” and “Love Me.” A sequence of singles intended for the repeatedly delayed Tha Carter V ensued, with “Believe Me,” featuring Drake, an addition to Wayne‘s stockpile of certified platinum hits. Another track — “Nothing But Trouble” featuring Charlie Puth — was released in 2015 as a contribution to the soundtrack for 808: The Movie. That same year — to make up for fan disappointment over Tha Carter V’s delays — Wayne self-released Sorry 4 the Wait 2.
By 2016, Wayne had become embroiled in a legal battle with Birdman and Cash Money Records, further complicating the fate of Tha Carter V. These continued delays prompted the release of Free Weezy Album, yet another mixtape to tide over his fans. By the end of the year, he published a memoir about his time spent at Riker’s Island (Gone ‘Til November) and scored another hit with “Sucker for Pain,” a collaboration for the chart-topping Suicide Squad soundtrack. The all-star track topped the Billboard rap chart and rose to number three on the R&B/hip-hop chart. DJ Khaled‘s “I’m the One” became one of Wayne‘s biggest collaborations the following year, topping the pop chart on its way to quintuple-platinum status. Primarily collaborative work continued well into 2018, including a contribution to the Future-driven soundtrack for Superfly.
