Earlier this summer, DJ Drama revealed the latest Dedication release will go back to its origins.
“Me and Wayne working. [The mixtape may be dropping] sooner than people think, so I’m just gonna say be patient,” Drama said in an interview. “[Have we started recording?] Yeah, absolutely. Definitely. It’s beats, rhymes and life. A Tribe Called Wayne. It’s mostly freestyles, you know. That’s what Dedication is known for. But we’re also going to get the skits back. So we’re definitely going to get some of that entertainment value of Wayne talking how he talks, like how he did with Dedication 1, 2 and 3. … That man is a monster when it comes to work. So he gets it all done.” (VIBE)
Last fall, the Young Money boss released his star-studded Dedication 4 Gangsta Grillz mixtape.
Lil Wayne has officially released the fourth installment in his popular Dedication mixtape series, Dedication 4, for free. After DJ Drama announced that he would be teaming up with Lil Wayne for another Dedication mixtape, fans have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Dedication 4 project. The details on the project have been rather sparse, and Weezy has only released one single in the 2 Chainz and Drake ‘No Lie’ Freestyle Remix. DJ Drama also promised that fans would get everything they expect from Mixtape Weezy on the project, which has driven the hype for this project that much more. (The Versed)
