The last Dedication mixtape was released in 2008. MTV caught up with DJ Drama where he shared how the project came about.
“Me and Cortez had been talkin’ back & forth for about a year that it was almost time for D4,” Drama said. “He said Tunechi had been mentioning it and was gearing up. During the Vegas stop on Club Paradise tour, Tez told me it was a 100% go. I told him thank God, ’cause the fans invade my Twitter daily asking about it! Dram and Wayne is a dangerous combination. Shout out to the Mixtape Weezy. Get ready.”
Lil Wayne is also putting the finishing touches on I Am Not A Human Being II. Weezy says the sequel to his 2010 album will be different because unlike the first project (completed before his jail stint on Rikers Island), he didn’t have to rush the album.
“The difference between [this] album and the last I Am Not a Human Being would be the music wasn’t rushed,” Weezy said. “Last time the music was rushed because I had to take that eight-month vacation on that island so we had rushed the music, but this time we didn’t rush the music.”
