DJ Drama Names Lil Wayne Dedication 2 As His Favorite Gangsta Grillz Project

DJ Drama recently narrowed down his top 10 Gangsta Grillz projects from his 150 plus discography to XXL over Zoom.

Coming in at the No. 1 spot was Lil Wayne‘s iconic Dedication 2 mixtape from 2006, which beat out Jeezy’s Trap Or Die, Gucci Mane’s The Movie, Meek Mill’s Dreamchasers 2, T.I.’s Down With The King, Chris Brown’s In My Zone, and many more.

You can read why Drama chose D2 as his #1 choice, recall bringing Tunechi the “Cannon” beat and name his favorite songs from the tape below, as well as reveal how the Dedication mixtape series first came about from being on tour with T.I. who one night had Tune on the phone!

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?

Turk Says Lil Wayne Would Beat Anyone In A “Verzuz” Battle If It Was Based On Music Catalogs [Videos]

Turk Says Lil Wayne Would Beat Anyone In A Verzuz Battle If It Was Off Music Catalogs Alone

Taking to his Instagram Live, Turk makes sure everyone knows that Lil Wayne could go up against anybody in a Verzuz battle and win if you’re going off music catalogs alone.

Turk says Tunechi‘s discography from The B.G.z and when he was going by the name of Baby D to all the way to now is so good that it will beat any other rapper, such as Jay Z, Eminem, T.I., The Game, and Busta Rhymes.

The YNT founder even says if you put all of the other rappers’ catalogs together whether they are old school or new school, it would still not come close to Weezy‘s discography. He also added that if you want to do groups, the Hot Boys would win against anybody. You can check out 2 videos of Turk discussing this below! Do you agree with him?

2 Chainz & T.I. Talk About Their Relationship With Lil Wayne, His Work Ethic, “ColleGrove” & More [Video]

2 Chainz & TI Talk About Their Relationship With Lil Wayne, His Work Ethic, ColleGrove & More

A couple of months ago, 2 Chainz appeared on the “expediTIously” podcast to chop it up with T.I. about music, investments, T.R.U. record label, Atlanta, and more.

Just before the 30:00 mark, Tity Boi spoke on his relationship with Lil Wayne, how their ColleGrove joint album came together from Chainz wanting to give back to Tunechi after Tune gave him the “Duffle Bag Boy” hook which changed his life, and Weezy having a skate ramp in his studio.

Later on in their conversation (1:11:45) that you can check out below, 2 Chainz discussed Lil Wayne‘s work ethic. He also mentioned “Free Roscoe” at some point in this interview, which I find strange considering he is currently locked up behind bars for shooting at Wayne‘s tour bus!
