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

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.

Jadakiss Says “Mixtape Killer Weezy” Will Be Featured On His Album

Jadakiss Says Mixtape Killer Weezy Will Be Featured On His Album

Mikey Fresh from Vibe recently spoke to Jadakiss about his upcoming fourth studio album, Top 5, Dead Or Alive, and who will be featured on it. Kiss mentions that Lil Wayne will be featured on the album, but not just any Wayne, the “mixtape killer Weezy“!

“The L.O.X. is definitely on it. Songs that I got done? Jeezy, Wiz, Chris Brown… I got Weezy on there, too. The vintage Weezy, that mixtape killer Weezy. I got Rozay, but we may do another one. My son’s favorite artist is J. Cole, so I think I got to throw him on there. He loves A$AP Rocky, but it’ll probably be one of them.”

I’m looking forward to hearing this collaboration after their previous collabos “Death Wish” and “It’s Good“. What about yourself ❓
