MIXTAPE: Lil Wayne - Dedication 4
It seems like another lifetime, but there was a point where Lil Wayne was indeed the best rapper alive and routinely slaughtered the best and brightest beats on a nearly endless run of mixtapes. One of the best was Dedication – his series with DJ Drama, which, particularly in his second iteration, yielded one of the finest extended moments in freebie rap history. Now, five years since the last one, we have Dedication 4. Using a mixture of new beats and hits like G.O.O.D. Music's "Mercy," Wayne gets features from Nicki Minaj, Young Jeezy, J. Cole, Birdman and more in his attempt to recapture his former deranged rap glory.
