Wayne reached higher popularity with his fourth album Tha Carter, which was led by the single “Go D.J.” and his appearance on Destiny’s Child’s Top 10 single “Soldier,” in 2004. The album was followed by Tha Carter II in 2005, as well as several mixtapes and collaborations throughout 2006 and 2007.

The album won the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album and includes the hit singles “Lollipop”, “A Milli” and “Got Money”.
