DJ Drama Talks About Lil Wayne & “Dedication 5” Mixtape [Video]

Wed, Jul 3, 2013 by

On the red carpet at the 2013 BET Awards, Vibe caught up with DJ Drama and asked him about Lil Wayne‘s upcoming mixtape, Dedication 5, which was announced last month.

Drama explains that the mixtape is coming “sooner than people think”, confirms that Weezy has already started to record freestyles over other music artists’ instrumentals, and if it is hard for him to get Tune off a skateboard and into a studio.

He also mentioned that the skits will be back on Dedication 5 like how they are on the first 3 tapes in the Dedication mixtape series, but not on the fourth installment.

    Hahaha (jay z laugh)

  • Khosta

    Didn’t y’all hear Bugatti freestyle? He already raped about pussy, scateboarding, killing people on the tape. It will be just like dedication 4. Don’t say I didn’t tell y’all

  • Loyal fan

    The reason y he won’t rape bout pussy, dick, skateboard etc is because the tape will be release in december and Weezy will be OFF probation….. So lets wait nd c the bst tape in the history of HIP HOP

  • Don

    Say he gotta out Drake in here I was devastated when he wasn’t on D4. I miss those Wayne and Drake killer collabs like ransom and stuntin

  • trey

    Is he dead

  • erick

    i just got this idea. for tha carter I and II you know how wayne had those tracks, fly in &out and walk in & out, well for carter V wayne should have tune in and tune out. i think that would be sickkkkkkk

  • erick

    @khosta bugatti is not gonna be on D5

  • erick

    @loyal fan i hope he does versace! i felt like he should of been on there with drake.

  • erick

    @b.dubb wayne has mentioned that in everything he’s ever done. don’t act like its new

  • erick

    i think he would destroy “villumianti” hopefully better then j. cole i dont think wayne could pull off power trip that beat doesn’t suit him but with wayne who knows

  • erick

    or forbidden fruit!

  • Kidd

    @loyal fan it wont be released in december didnt you watch the video he said it will be coming much sooner than what people think im gonna say it comes out mid september

    @khosta wait a minute wasnt d4 where green ranger was on and cashin out and not to mention when he killed your so called favorite rapper flow on magic

  • tony_montana

    He should definately remix New slaves & ghetto symphony…I feel like he would kill those if tried hard enough.versace & open letter too, I don’t understand why people would want him to get on “black skinhead” though. I hope he doesn’t go toooo0 comercial on this though, like I hope he doesn’t remix songs like “all gold everything” and shit…

  • Don

    @Kidd lol tyga already did a fucking problem

  • Kidd

    Oops my fault

  • New

    New Wayne remix came out called all the time.

  • realshih

    I remember the first song from no ceilings came out and it was swag surfin,it had everyone hype goin crazy waiting for the mixtape…the buggati freestyle didn’t cause any buzz and people don’t seem to be so hype for it cuz Wayne is so predictable these days..

  • Tie

    IT WILL BE TRASH LYK ALL HIS RECENT MATERIALS DON’T SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU!!!!

  • Don

    @New what?

  • Kidd

    Aye yall if you like real hip hop check out my nigga starlitos album cold turkey on itunes and google play

  • New

    @Don
    Idk if new but I just saw it

    WILLIE TAYLOR FT. LIL WAYNE & NATASHA MOSLEY – ALL THE TIME (REMIX)

  • Kidd

    @new idk where you been but that song isnt new its been out for some months

  • Khosta

    @kidd don’t lie, they killed wayne. Flow had doper punchlines than wayne on magic..

  • Khosta

    Big mac mc chickens menu

  • 93green7

    tune kill some type of way .

  • Kidd

    “Fishtailing out the parking lot like salmon, she swallowed all my kids bitch we couldve had a family, the way I smoke the purp disappear straight vanish, smoke fire spitfire puff the magic dragon, tunechi”

    @khosta he killed anything flow said with these bars and im sorry if you think flow was ever or will ever be better than tune than you dont know about hip hop first of all the best rapper is kendrick lamar but my favorite is wayne I say he is number two but could be number one if he wanted to so if your saying that flow is the best rapper listen to kendrick 6foot7 freestyle or any song on his album thats not on the radio

  • YMAnonymous

    There is a versace freestyle by wayne

  • Khosta

    “my flow is retarded I think I got a birth effect. High way to heaven, pow! Where the fuck your choufered at? These niggas softer than the pillows on my sofer set.
    I’m fightin myself, cuz I don’t see no competition.
    I don’t write I draw that pistol make your face a compesition. Pow!”
    got kendrick’s album cuz I’m a fan but it’s dissapointing. Flow’s mixtape with christian R is way doper.
    Wayne’s verse aint shit to those lines I quoted. Wayne’s second for me. Acehood is third then it’s kendrick

  • Kidd

    @khosta alright i really dont wanna go back and forth but im wondering is this your favorite rapper list or your best rappers list? Its really a hige difference for example the top five rappers in my opinion are:
    1. Kendrick Lamar
    2. Lil Wayne
    3. Nas
    4. Drake
    5. J Cole
    but my favorite rappers in order are:
    1. Lil Wayne
    2. Don Trip
    3. Kendrick Lamar
    4. Starlito
    5. Eminem
    I respect it if flow and ace hood are in your favorites but if they are in your best rapper list i cant respect it or even understand your view

  • Kidd

    @khosta also i dont see how kendricks album is disappointing and it is also labeled as a classic from the last 20 years i believe its like number 15 on that list and thats a lot to say about someones debut albumand first year getting recognized

  • New

    @kidd
    Like I said I just saw it idk if it was new

  • patriots

    i know wayne bout to do something different cuz aint no way he cumin out wit a new dedication for no reason he must of heard people complaining and now he’s has some things to set straight wit his fans and HATERS see the difference between wayne and the other vets is that they cant be like how they used to. wayne is the only vet who can tap into his old ways. cant wait cuz wat does on mixtapes is crazy cuz he really takes that person flow on their song, uses it and it’s better than the the original D5 lets go

  • Don

    @YMAnomyomous how you know?

  • Khosta

    @kid somethings wrong with you. Kendrick better than wayne ? Have you forgotten scarface, gossip, missundrstood, dr carter, mr carter, i know the future, dedication 3, 6 foot 7 foot, pussy money weed, tie my hands, pray to the lord, president carter, trigger finger, God bless Amerika, renegade freestyle, walk in, fly in, fly out, amillie, Spitter, cannon freestyle etc ? Kendrick will never touch that stuff

  • lil tune

    @khosta, those songs are deadly as fucks, kendrick won’t touch that through his entire carreer

  • Kidd

    @khosta im not saying kendrick is better than wayne ever was he cant touch the c3 or no ceilings or anything before that im saying that hes better than lil wayne right now wayne can take back his crown if d5 is legendary though but wait your saying that flow is better than wayne now thats dumb kendrick would murder flow any day and so would tune

  • YMAnonymous

    @don im close with YM

  • Don

    @YMAnoymous oh ok cool

  • Don

    @YMAnonymous do you know what he is gonna drop next like what song

  • Khosta

    Dude get the wolf mixtape and brothers from another colour. Flow better than any rapper in the game. When he goes autotune he murders the old autotune wayne

  • lil tune

    @khosta, nigga u out of yo fuckin mind if u rlly think flow would murder old autotune weezy, no1 back then could murder weezy, so wat makes u think flow could!

  • Glenn

    @khosta you dont know music at all flow cant never fuck wit wayne and then you dont know nuttin about flow the two mixtapes you named are not that good nigga go listen to heroic by flow thats his coldest shit he ever dropped but he could never fuck with wayne tho

  • versace

    Flow better than Jay Z nigga!

  • Kidd

    Im trynna tell this nigga he dont know rap especially if he said that flow is the best rapper and flow isnt in the top fivr in youngmoney theres lil wayne then drake then cory gunz then tyga then gudda then it might be flow if hes better than nicki lol

  • Dedication II was the hardest Lil Wayne kill That shit like the carter II Wayne Was Up with all these niggas hating on you!! I guess them niggas dont believe you the best! Them niggas can die a 1,000 times and maybe they’ll come back a real nigga. Wayne fuck with them Turnkey Gulfport Ms niggas James Graham dat nigga down this bitch and James Graham Been supporting you buying all yo albums I fwu nigga even if you dont give a fuck about me and tell Drake i said was up? And tell nicki I said if she seen that mandingo and pinky porn I’ll hit her like that and leave alone im fucking G

  • tony_montana

    Khosta is a retard people, he’s really dumb! I’m not mocking the kid or anything but the dude is really,genuinely stupid. Read all this previous comments if you don’t believe me, he always says the dumbest shit ever, I swear! So do yourselves a favour and just don’t argue with him, or you’ll go crazy. Just saying!

  • Don

    I’m just ready for a track list and a release date and possibly one more song off of it

  • YMAnonymous

    @don hes not sure if he will release another song or not

  • Don

    @YMAnoymous ok well what about a track list or a release date?

  • Khosta

    Niggas didnt y’all hear flow on autotune? In the pour it up remix? And year I also think heroic is his best shit but man that album with christian was insane. Even ma girl friend listens to Flow and she sick of Wayne.
    “like over feeding stevie, I’m wonderfull” – Flow

  • YMAnonymous

    @don he has only gone over 4 songs for the tape so far. The release will be early September unless something changes.

  • daReal214

    All I need from this is a release date, and I’m hoping Wayne does a Love Sosa freestyle, that will go hard!

  • Don

    @YMAnonumous ok preciate it

  • Don

    @daReal214 lol hell ya these bitches love Weezy!!!!!!! Ha that would go so hard

  • Kidd

    @dareal214 thats negative the song is too commercial and it would be a dumb song ro remix no offense

  • Kidd

    By the way i just heard the audio to jays diss to wayne its horrible if you havent heard it then just looj at the lyrics and imagine chief keef rapping it wit his weak ass

  • real talk

    looking forward to wayne new mixtape it’s always his best shit hands down but i gotta be honest and im not a hater ima a fan before yall start that shit but he really gonna have to go in stupid hard if he wanna over shadow MAGNA CARTA HOLY GRAIL cause that shit classic and i don’t give a fuck what nobody say bout it thats just real talk and yeah again im a wayne fan ppl

  • yo for some reason i feel like wayne been hiding i been in this webstite for 3 weeks straight i dont see danny post nothing … damn danny were is wayne at n doing

  • Tru

    So just do me a a favor and don’t do me no favors.
    Flow definitly goes harder than gudda gudda. Double G good but sometimes wack

  • Kidd

    @tru you right he is sometimes but hes consistent enough and i like his verse on gunwalk
    “Lame rappers that talk tough, get a broke jaw starstruck”
    Its reminiscent of lil waynes quote from six foot seven
    “These motherfuclers talking crazy like they jaw broke”

  • WeezyKB24

    wayne has probably been in the studio all night lately… trying to get D5 done since the tour starts tomorrow.

  • Don

    @WeezyKB24 I hope so

  • Kidd

    @weezykb24 actually hes gonba be working on the mixtape on tour like he always does his mixtapes on tour thats one of hos trademarks.i guess
    By the way if that kb24 is for kobe bryant which i think it is then we are in the same boat

  • lewis

    he should completely flip tha script and do some crazy song. like spit over Billie jean or something. something a lot of rappers couldn’t do. only Wayne. I dont think he will diss Jay. not after the pusha t diss lol. 40 glocc diss was good on its good.

  • Uhm wayne gets betta wth tym you cant expect hm to always b bout gangstr rap. . .hes kinda tired of running th game lets all gve hm a chnce

    Wyne is th best
