The Wait is Over
On Christmas day, all the Wayne fans got a superb gift from Tunechi himself. Lil’ Wayne presents his 6th installment to the “Dedication” series co-hosted by the legendary DJ Drama. “The Dedication” series began on Dec. 13, 2015, announced by Dj Drama. The mixtape itself holds 5 stars and 200,000 downloads.
Two years ago, Young Money Entertainment and Republic Records released Weezy’s 11th studio album “Free Weezy” (abbreviated FWA) which was a Tidal release only. Talks were in the works about his album “The Carter V” which was held up by a dispute with Cash Money Records frontman Brian Birdman Williams. The FWA Album was released as a filler until the dispute was resolved. Now it’s noted that “The Carter V” is set to be released in 2018 but the date as of today is uncertain. So, with fans patiently waiting, Tunechi released D6.
The mixtape features remixes to Bank Account by 21 Savage, XO Tour Life by Lil Uzi Vert, Problem by 6lack, and more. Guest Appearances on the tape include Gudda Gudda, Nicki Minaj, Corey Gunz, Euro and Zoey Dollaz.
Fans alike feel that “Dedication 6” isn’t up to snuff as “Dedication 5”, in terms of guest features due the fact the features where focusing more on Young Money Artists. So, does this affect the overall success of the project? With over 300k + downloads fans still seem to be eating up this mixtape since it’s release and no confirmation about if this was an issue or not. Time will only tell, but as a whole, the mixtape could have used more of an outside feel with other artists, but Wayne truly showed why he could be the GOAT with this project.
Recent statements made by Wayne stated that there will be two versions of D6 simply because he has way too many songs. This isn’t confirmed if Wayne is speaking the truth or if he’s blowing smoke. This marketing strategy could be the start of a deluxe edition that you can stream and or purchase in the future following the free tape released on Christmas day, but we will have to wait to find out.
