The “F” is for Finally: Lil Wayne Drops “Dedication 6:Reloaded”

XXL’s Version of “Reloaded,” (All in Good Fun, Sorry)

ITS WEEZY F BABY SEASON AND THE “F” IS FOR FINALLY! About a month after his Christmas day release of Dedication 6, Lil Wayne releases anotherhard-hitting installment to his Dedication series. Despite what XXL might have you think, there are 20 tracks on this mixtape (not 19 like in their list shown to the right).

1. “For Nothing”

On Dedication 6 Wayne showed us that although the rap game “Human Whopper” has kept Tha Carter V locked away for years, Wayne still isn’t finished with us. Though there were rumors early on last year of his discourage-fueled retirement from hiphop (which brought us this awesome series of snapchats from Kendrick Lamar), Wayne came out of the shadows with straight fire over beats from artists of the newer generations of rap. If Dedication 6 was Wayne’s return, Reloaded is his reiteration; Wayne can’t be stopped even if he’s stopped.

Reloaded only contains one original beat: “Abracadabra.” The rest of the tape consists completely of remixes of songs such as “Gucci Gang,” “Slippery,” “Dreams and Nightmares,” “The Race,” “Gummo,” and many more songs any hip-hop head could identify. During my first listen through I had a wonderful time recognizing the beats used, and hearing Weezy’s interpretation.

Some highlights of the tape, aside from the plethora of impressive classic-Wayne wordplay, include the personal interview-like skits at the end of each track where Wayne answers an assumed question, the love shown to recently deceased “Fredo Santana” on “Drowning,” and the entirety of the “Dreams and Nightmares” remix.
