Fans anxious to hear new music from Lil Wayne were disappointed when they found out that “Dedication 4” — the rapper’s highly anticipated collaborative mixtape with DJ Drama — would not be dropping today (Aug 30) as scheduled.
But now there’s a new release date — September 3rd at noon!
This isn’t the first time “Dedication 4” has been delayed. The tape was originally set to drop on August 15th, but was pushed back because he didn’t want to take away the spotlight from his friend 2 Chainz‘ debut album.
The next day, Weezy told Hip-Hop blog Bread Over Bed, “I know I was supposed to drop that Dedication 4 tonight and all that…but listen, my homeboy 2 Chainz just dropped his album yesterday. That’s my real, real, real good homeboy right there and I refuse to put any attention on me when the spotlight, everybody’s eyes, everybody’s attention and everybody’s focus should be on my n*gga 2 Chainz’s album, Based On A T.R.U. Story.”
To make up for the delay, Wayne released a remix to 2 Chainz & Drake’s “No Lie,” a possible song from the mixtape.
