After a lengthy delay, Lil Wayne has finally released Dedication 5.
Hosted by DJ Drama, it's the latest installment in a series that dates back to The Dedication in 2005. Chance The Rapper, The Weeknd, and Future all make guest appearances on the project, which sees Wayne tackle beats such as "New Slaves," "Levels," and "U.O.E.N.O." Wayne also enlists the assistance of Euro, who appears to be the most recent signee to YMCMB. He appears on four of the projects 29 tracks. Other YMCMB members on the mixtape include Jae Millz, Lil Chuckie, Mack Maine, and Birdman.
Dedication 5 was supposed to come out at 5PM on Friday afternoon, but then subsequently suffered a delay when Wayne chose to go back and record new material. With fans waiting all night feverishly and no set timetable, a "Before Dedication 5 Drops" trending topic emerged on Twitter. In the morning, Wayne announced that he had sent the project over to Drama, but Drama then had to wake up and get in the studio with the project while simultaneously handling a DJ gig.
Check out the project and watch a trailer that came out earlier in the day below.
