Mixtape: Lil Wayne – “Dedication 4″

lil wayne dedication 4 mixtape cover 600x600 Mixtape: Lil Wayne   Dedication 4

It’s been nearly four years since Lil Wayne released the last Dedication mixtape, and almost three years since he unleashed his most recent mixtape, No Ceilings, a punchline-laden salvo recorded with jail time looming and the promise of Rebirth around the corner (an even more frightening prospect for some).

In the intervening years, Wayne released two platinum albums (I Am Not a Human Being and The Carter IV), one gold album (Rebirth) and shepherded the rise of two of rap’s best selling stars, Drake and Nicki Minaj. For some, that might constitute an unparalleled hot streak, for Wayne–an artist who once boasted of being the “best rapper alive” and had people truly believing him–it represents half of an incomplete hole, as many would argue his rapping ability has taken a precipitous nose dive since his wave crested with No Ceilings. Enter Dedication 4. Dusting off a beloved series and conjuring images of past glory, the run up to Dedication 4 has fans hoping for and expecting a return to form. See if it lives up to expectations below.
