D-Day has finally arrived. After a slight delay, Lil Wayne serves up the soundtrack to your Labor Day weekend with Dedication 5. The fifth installment in his DJ Drama-hosted series features a whopping 29 tracks including remixes to "New Slaves," "Levels," and "Feds Watching," plus appearances from T.I., 2 Chainz, The Weeknd, Birdman, Future, and more. The follow-up to 2012's Dedication 4 was originally set to drop on Friday, but was postponed so Wayne could make some last-minute additions. (Rap-Up)
According to reports, Wayne's need to make changes forced the project to miss its scheduled release last week.
