Happy Labor Day EVERYBODY. Now, with that out the way, lets get down to business. Today Lil’ Wayne calls himself BLESSING us with a 4th installment to his legendary “Dedication” mixtape series. Hosted by DJ Drama, the Young Money mogul attempts to go over some of today’s more popular tunes. From “Mercy” to “I Don’t Like”, Wayne’s mediocre bars leaves you wondering…….Why? I’ve been very vocal about my disinterest in anything that is Lil’ Wayne or YMCMB (outside of Drake) but with the “Dedication” series being very instrumental in the resurgence of mixtapes I couldn’t help but give it a listen. And boy, did I regret it. If you’re fine with listening to 15 songs about drugs, oral sex, guns, and Truk-Fit then this is a MUST DOWNLOAD! My problem isn’t even in the lyrical content but the way he goes about delivering his punchlines and bars. On the song “Mercy” ,which features an even more pathetic verse from Nicki Minaj, Wayne finds himself channeling his inner Kanye by jacking ‘Ye’s flow and putting a spin on ‘Ye’s lyrics.
I’m the sh*t turn your nose up
I threw some bad b**ches on my tour bus
I threw some bad b**ches on my private jet
If them b**ches ain’t f***ing give them parachutes.
That was the last line I listened to before I deemed this mixtape to be the worst project of 2012 so far. Though, there is one bright spot on the mixtape, a verse from Carolina spitter J. Cole. With that being said, click the link and give it a listen you if feel lucky. Share to all your enemies and ex-girlfriends and boyfriends.
