By December 2005, Lil Wayne had already released a handful of popular street albums, but neither Da Drought or its sequel could hold a flickering rap candle to The Dedication.
Amazingly, almost eight full years and seven mixtapes later, Weezy's maiden mixtape voyage with DJ Drama and his Gangsta Grillz series is arguably his best to date. Standing at a whopping 29 tracks, The Dedication finds the Young Money head honcho
rapping over crushing industry instrumentals like Stat Quo's "Like Dat," Slim Thug's "3 Kings" and T.I.'s "Motivation."
