As Lil Wayne fans continue to patiently wait on Tha Carter V, Weezy has something to momentarily appease his audience. On Wednesday (December 6), Wayne took to Instagram to announce Dedication 6 with DJ Drama will arrive on Christmas Day. He also shared the red, white and black cover art, which features a caricature of Wayne and delivers the same aesthetic as the previous five Dedication projects.
The caption reads, “It’s time! Sign up for updates and music before drop date! To My fans, I do this for y’all! #D6 MERRY CHRISTMAS.”
Drama teased the project in August during an interview with Rolling Out, assuring fans it was coming. Many of his fans were hoping for a late November release after Wayne wrote in an Instagram post, “Happy Thanksgiving! I’m so thankful for all my fans for standing by me while I’m enduring this fight with this label. I ain’t shit without y’all! D6 is coming y’all way soon! Thank You.”
The duo kicked off the series in 2005 with The Dedication, but it’s been four years since we got the last edition —Dedication 5 was released in 2013, just a year after Dedication 4.
There’s still no official release date for Tha Carter V but Wayne claims he can “release it at will.”
