Lil Wayne Releases ‘Dedication 4’ Mixtape
After many (two) delays, the mixtape that most 21st century hip-hop heads have been waiting for has been released – the fourth edition of Lil Wayne’s ‘Dedication’ series. The DJ Drama collaboration features the most popular beats in the game, such as ‘Mercy’, ‘I Don’t Like’ ‘No Lie’ ‘Amen’ and more…
The rapper told Mixtape Daily about his choice of instrumentals: "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."
Regardless, the New Orleans lyricist manages to make every tune his own, even ‘Mercy’, which sees him pair up with first lady Nicki Minaj to ‘swerve’.
Full of boasting, sexually explicit metaphors, fast and slow flows and a couple of nice collaborations, the mixtape is sure to keep fans happy, as Weezy intended. According to MTV Rapfix, he said: “The reason why I'm recording mixtapes is because I've grown a whole fanbase that just loves Wayne mixtapes.
“Me being the generous dude I am, I have to cater to those people, so that's why I do the mixtapes now."
