DJ Drama Crowns Lil Wayne’s “Dedication 2” As The Best “Gangsta Grillz” Mixtape & Teases “Dedication 7” [Video]

DJ Drama Crowns Lil Wayne Dedication 2 As The Best Gangsta Grillz Mixtape & Teases Dedication 7

DJ Drama recently participated in a game of “Complex Brackets” with Brian “B.Dot” Miller, which consisted of himself reviewing his “Gangsta Grillz” catalog and choosing his very best mixtape from the series.

From a 16-seed bracket that included Lil Wayne‘s Dedication 2 and Dedication, Jeezy’s Trap Or Die, Chris Brown’s In My Zone, Meek Mill’s Dreamcashers 2, T.I.’s Down With The King, and more mixtapes, Drama got it down to just 2 – Dedication 2 vs. Trap Or Die and it was Wayne who came out victorious.

During the game, Drama also mentioned Dedication 2 was so big at the time in 2006 that it made The New York Times’ “Top 10 Albums Of The Year” list, as well as confirmed Dedication 7 is still happening… but very unconvincingly. Do you agree with D2 being the best “Gangsta Grillz” mixtape of all time and do you think D7 will actually ever happen?

Jim Jones Recalls A Crazy Story That Left Him Wanting To Fuck Wayne Up

For episode 413 of “The Joe Budden Podcast With Rory & Mal“, the three guys sat down with Jim Jones for an interview, which you can check out below.

At the 2:53:00 mark of their conversation, Jim recalled a crazy story that included the time when the late Stack Bundles begged him to get Lil Wayne featured on their “Weather Man” collaboration back in 2006 to which he was successful in doing so.

However, Jim Jones goes on to say that he “wanted to fuck Weezy up” after Wayne went and rapped a similar hook on Fat Joe‘s “Make It Rain” single. Even though he “loves Weezy to death”, Jones did mention he was ready to take it to next level after he saw Tunechi at a club before Juelz Santana stepped in and stopped anything from escalating. The Dipset rapper also revealed Tune gave him an explanation over the “Make It Rain” chorus and that was: “Yo, I be high”!

Scans Of Lil Wayne Cover Story For Ozone Magazine December 2006 Issue

After seeing scans from the February 2006 issue last year, I have decided to share scans from Lil Wayne‘s cover story for the December 2006 issue of Ozone magazine for #ThrowbackThursday today.

In an interview with Eric Perrin for the mag, Weezy discussed everything from being signed to Cash Money Records, if he believes good emcees are born or made, Jay-Z, staying loyal to Cash Money, his relationship with Birdman, why he thinks he has been so successful, and being an official member of Boyz N Da Hood.

Young Buck recently said some pretty bold statements in an interview about you and Baby supposedly kissing on a tour bus.
Who is that? I don’t know who you’re talking about.

Okay, so do you have any messages for all the haters who have made different allegations about you recently?
Stop hating, get money.

You can check out scans from Tunechi‘s cover story below that also includes him talking about creating the song “Georgia… Bush“, New Orleans, the I Can’t Feel My Face joint project with Juelz Santana, sex, what advice he would give to girls who want to get him in bed with them, Trina, the freakiest text message he has ever received off a girl, Solange, HIV and AIDS, planning to create a Louisiana Bayou Blast mixtape, and much more!
