After delays, Lil wayne releases ‘Dedication 4’


After weeks of anticipating the return of “Mixtape Weezy”, Lil Wayne finally released his highly anticipated Mixtape, Dedication 4. 

Released on Labor Day, DJ Drama hosted mixtape, the fourth installment and most recent music from Wayne since releasing The Carter IV (Aug. 28, 2011).  

If you’ve followed hip-hop over the course of the last eight years, you don’t need an introduction to the Dedication Series. 

DJ Drama helped build Weezy into the hip-hop legend, in particular with Dedication 2, which begun the transition into rap’s “Mixtape Age”. 

After two days on the wire, Dedicaton 4 has over 2 million downloads which still makes Lil wayne music’s relevant artist. A year since the Carter IV was released, no artist in the music insdustry has sold more records off their album than Wayne (yes, that means you too Adele). 

 The Dedication 4 features Nicki Minaj, J. Cole, Young Jeezy, Lil Mouse, Boo and Birdman. Appetizer to his upcoming album I Am Not a Human Being II (due out before year’s end), the mixtape finds Tunechi flowing over instrumentals from Rick Ross “So Sophisticated,” Chief Keef’s “I don’t like,” Ca$h Out’s “Cashin Out,” Meek Mill’s “Amen” and “Burn”. 

“Usually, I kill all the hot songs that’s out but I’m on all the hot songs that’s out. So now I have nothing to kill”, he told XXl magazine.

Obviously, rapping has taken the back seat to skateboarding. All in all, Lil Wayne is bored. Well, let me rephrase, Lil Wayne is bored wealthy. Boasting about fornicating women and smoking more marijuana never gets old to Wayne. 

His punchlines have  evolved but his retarded metaphors seem to get funnier and funnier.
