On June 10, 2013 Lil Wayne released a freestyle over the Ace Hood hit ”Bugatti” instrumental featuring fellow Young Money artist Boo, which was later confirmed to be the first song from Dedication 5. Later that day DJ Drama confirmed on his Twitter that the mixtape is coming by stating: Yup. D5. Tunechi. Dram. YM. Stay tuned. But pleaaaase…. b patient. hinting that the mixtape won’t be released very soon. Mack Maine intensified the topic when he tweeted D5 hinting the tape is on its way. On August 14, 2013, Lil Wayne hinted on his Twitter account that the mixtape would be finished in 10 days after he was asked by a fan. On August 25, 2013, it was announced the mixtape would be released on August 30, 2013. The mixtape was later pushed back two days and was released on September 1, 2013, at 12AM PST. The graphic artwork of Dedication 5 was made by the graphics team OllyCarterzGFX (Olly Tas and Abidul Ahad).
The Dedication series is a crucial component in Lil Wayne’s long-term career and success. Stemming back to 2005, the previous four entries, particularly Dedication 2, are often cited as helping Lil Wayne transition from his Hot Boys persona to status as YMCMB honcho. ”It’s mostly freestyles,” DJ Drama said of Lil Wayne‘s tape. “That’s what Dedication is known for…We’re also gonna get the skits back. So we’ll definitely get some of that entertaining value of Wayne talking what he talks, like in Dedication 1, 2 and 3.” Follow on Twitter @LilTunechi @djdrama @MedievalBeatz Rap Beats For Sale
