Mixtapes helped make Lil Wayne into the star that he is today. Album sales are what led to Lil Wayne becoming the mainstream force that he has become. Even though he dropped tons of mixtapes, Lil Wayne made himself a staple through his mixtape series, Dedication, which DJ Drama hosted.
It was the Dedication series that helped Lil Wayne grow to the point where he could be the highest-selling rapper in the game. In any event, Lil Wayne has kept this series going well after his career exploded into multi-platinum-hood. Dedication 4 dropped a month before Tha Carter IV did.
There has been a lot of rumblings about Lil Wayne dropping Dedication 5. Lil Wayne recently made plans to drop Dedication 5. This mixtape is set to drop on August 30, almost exactly two years after its predecessor and Lil Wayne also dropped the artwork today.
