DJ Drama sent a message on social media hinting that Lil Wayne‘s Dedication 6 will follow his album release. Drama posted a photo of him, Lil Wayne, and Mack Maine on Instagram. The photo was accompanied with the caption, “Sorry For The Wait 2. Carter V. Dedication 6.” Wayne just dropped his Sorry 4 the Wait 2 mixtape last month. The highly publicized mixtape featured 17-tracks, with guest appearances from 2 Chainz, Nicki Minaj, Drake, and other recording artists. Some of the biggest highlights from the mixtape include Wayne’s renditions of Beyoncé‘s “Drunk in Love,” Rae Sremmurd‘s “No Type,” and OG Maco‘s “You Guessed It.”
Although there is not a timetable for when Tha Carter V album will drop, fans are hoping it will be sooner than later. The project is supposed to be released in two parts, and it is expected to feature guest appearances by Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Nicki Minaj, Justin Timberlake, Big Sean, Justin Bieber, Christina Milian, and more. The rapper is currently suing Cash Money Records for $51 million. Wayne claims the record label has been withholding money that is owed to him. Wayne’s end goal is to be completely released from his Cash Money recording contract. Last year, Wayne said that Tha Carter V would be his last solo album. He also vowed he would only make guest appearances on his YMCMB‘s projects. Fans are wondering if this recent turmoil with Cash Money will fuel Wayne to record more solo projects. The rapper told MTV News that it would take “25 to 35 million” to get him to record another album after Tha Carter V.
In 2005, the rapper and DJ Drama released the first mixtape from the Dedication series entitled, The Dedication. Some of the mixtape’s renditions featured “Drop It Like It’s Hot Remix” (Snoop Dogg featuring Pharrell Williams and Jay-Z), “Motivation” (T.I.), and “Over Here” (Young Jeezy featuring Bun B). The latest mixtape, Dedication 5, was released almost two years ago. It featured appearances from Future, The Weeknd, T.I., Chance the Rapper, and Birdman. The mixtape featured song renditions of “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe” (Kendrick Lamar), “New Slaves” (Kanye West), and “Started From the Bottom” (Drake).
