UPDATE: The Lil Wayne Dedication 5 download link and stream are above, with my thoughts earlier in the night when the tracklist was revealed below.
29 tracks and a bevy of new freestyles from Weezy.
Features from T.I., 2 Chainz, Future, The Weeknd, Chance The Rapper, Mack Maine, Birdman, and more.
My first move was to skip right to track 7 (15:42 in the stream) to hear if the Lil Wayne x Chance The Rapper collab sounds as good as it does on paper. And sure enough, it does. I had to run back Chance's verse a couple times before I let it proceed to Weezy's. An easy *Tibs Fav. for what many would call Chance's biggest look as a featured guest.
Some notables: how about Chance The Rapper with his biggest feature yet?
Anyway, a familiar cast of features follows suit like tourmates T.I. & 2 Chainz, Birdman, Mack Maine, and Jae Millz. Plus, I'm also intrigued to hear his collab/intro track with The Weeknd. Dedication 5 dropping soon, but I don't even know when. It could be moments after this post or continue to be delayed. It was supposed to drop yesterday, the 30th, but the finishing touches are still being put on it. Stay tuned for an update!
Weezy fans, you got a lot to look forward to this week. He's back with a new mixtape, hosted by DJ Drama & Gangsta Grillz of course, the fifth installment of the Dedication series on August 30th. Here is a look at cartoon Weezy in the Dedication 5 mixtape cover above.
