Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne is once again teaming up with Atlanta's DJ Drama to deliver a follow-up to 2008's The Dedication 3 mixtape.
Brief with his words, Weezy F. Baby broke the news Sunday (July 22) afternoon.
"Dedikation 4 komin next month.," he tweeted. (Lil Wayne's Twitter)
DJ Drama co-signed Wayne's proclamation with a re-tweet.

Wayne and Drama's previous effort landed online in November 2008.
Helping to create a stir of excitement for fans, Weezy and Drama reunited to deliver a packed collection of new records. Officially beginning in 2004 and then in 2006 with "Dedication 2," the mixtapes have assisted in solidifying the self-proclaimed "Greatest Rapper Alive" to the superstar status he enjoys today and has upped the standards for Drama's "Gangsta Grillz" series. As previously reported by SOHH's Dirty blog, snippets and samples of the compilation were played heavily throughout the week with an official announcement of it dropping yesterday. Despite the delayed release, fans may be easily forgiving as they are treated to 23 tracks with guest appearances from Weezy's latest Young Money signee, mixtape phenom Jae Millz and Drama's artist Willie the Kid, among others.

Music aside, the Young Money boss recently landed on Forbes' "Highest Paid Celebrities Under 30" list.
Justin Bieber is the only man in the Top 5, and also the youngest of the group. Fitting comfortably between Taylor Swift ($57 million) and Rihanna ($53 million) with $55 million in his bank account, The Bieb earns a little more than double Lil Wayne (whose laughable $27 million income puts him barely ahead of male Twilight co-stars Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson, who are each estimated to be worth $27.5 million).
