DJ Drama And Lil Wayne Present Dedication 3

Back when Lil Wayne dropped two bangers with Dedication and Dedication 2, I thought to myself, “Hell has officially frozen over. Lil Wayne became a dope rapper.” The clever rhymes and sick flows on those mixtapes made the hip-hop world take notice. The outcome was Wayne becoming the hottest rapper in the game. Well, after listening to Dedication 3, the hottest rapper in the game must’ve melted the ice in hell cause Lil Wayne is garbage once again. Hell is burning full throttle.

This mixtape is more evidence that Lil Wayne is trying to become Lauryn Hill. He might look like a Bizzaro version of Ms. Hill, but he sure as hell can’t sing like she used to. This Auto-Tune thing is really getting out of hand. He was given dope beats to rip, but instead he used them to become T-Wayne. From the intro on Dedication 3 to where he was talking about being “Flyer than a butterfly doing the tootsie roll” on “Put On For My City,” T-Wayne demonstrated just how far this game has fallen. I remember a time when rappers used to try to be like the hottest rapper in the game. Now it’s to the point where rappers are trying to be like the hottest singer in the game.

I can’t knock DJ Drama on any level. That’s the homie right there. He chose some hot tracks for this mixtape, but Wayne only rapped on like two or three joints. He got right on those joints too. “Bang Bang” was tight even though we all saw that video where 40 Glocc had him under pressure in LA. So we know he don’t bang for real. “Dick Pleaser” was a clever joint too. Based off the title I thought son was gonna finally come out the closet, but he rapped about the numerous shorties he’s slaying.

Sure his lyrics have eroded over the last few years (Tha Carter II was by far his best album), you can tell when he says simple lines like, “What the fuck do I be thinkin’? Kill, kill, murder and Benjamin Franklin/your girlfriend is into them gangstas and me being a gangsta I’ll get into your girlfriend/I stay still when the world spin/and ain’t nobody flyer than the Birdman…” That last line pretty much validates why I thought Wayne was gonna Lance Bass the hip-hop world on “Dick Pleaser.” Guess he’s saving that for when he’ll be on “The Surreal Life” in two years.

All in all, this mixtape wasn’t horrible. It was just disappointing and weak. Wayne straight up and down became a tool of the darkside: Auto-Tune. I wonder if he’ll ever become a straight rapper again (Pun intended). They really shouldn’t have called this Dedication 3 because this in no way reflects the dopeness of D1 and D2. He should’ve just called this Tuning Out of the Game. -The Infamous O

Hottest Joint: “Bang Bang”

Weakest Joint: “She’s A Ryder”

    When he raps his fucks up any other rapper this in the game. Whens he sings it makes me sick. so this mixtape made me pretty fuckin sick.

    • NAWLEDGE

      B.O.B kills Wayne in rapping and singing.

    • joe p

      crap crap crap… that sizzurp must be gettin to him now … im calling a unexpected death as a result of overdose by wayne within the next couple years … and the shit he is puttin out now … it wouldnt be a bad thing

      • O

        Damn, that’s an ill prophetic call.

  • Mitchell

    Whaha review funny as hell but not a word is lied about the mixtape. Wayne needs to get back on that CarterII shit for real!!! Let T-Pain do the auto-tune thing!

  • Dr.J

    i don’t know what happened to this nigga but wayne on some bullshit

    • O

      Co-signin’ like a muthafucka…

  • edd

    WACK

  • Uncle Phil

    I always said wayne was best with the first 2 dedications and the first 2 carters but after that he just been goin downhill to the point where now he straight ass

  • Nast

    Weezy been fuckin with that codine and shit and thinkin that he’s hot on that auto tune bullshit. Hot boyz need to smack him upside his head and throw that piece of shit autotuner out the window and make him go hard on some tracks for once. he aint gone hard on a track since carter II

  • mo

    wayne has only has 2 hot albums his entire career carter 1 and 2 dude is garbage and he still hasn’t made that classic album that people have been waiting for.

  • mo

    lil gayne is now offically garbage…young rap niggas and their fans need to step their rap game up

  • Beezle

    I aint even against that vocoder on the hooks and shit, but hes confusin it with an excuse to not spit. All I’m sayin is Drake Drizzy stole everybody’s lunch on the whole damn mixtape with his verse. My dude sounds like Weezy USED to…damn…

  • DJ Knox

    Does this mean that T.I.P. is “un”officially the best rapper alive since his worst album is still better than Wayne’s “best” album…Just a question.

    Ghost!!!

    • 619

      No, Luda’s album is gonna be way better than T.I.’s was. He’s already got the charts, females and clubs covered with the ‘I Know What The Girls Like’ joint. And that ‘Undisputed’ joint with Floyd Mayweather is gonna have the streets locked. Luda got the best album of the year so far.

  • Makavelli

    WOW, THERE ARE SOME OFFICIAL WEEZY HATERS POSTING HERE, N WHOEVER WROTE THIS REVIEW WAS COMPLETELY ONE SIDED…I WILL ADMIT HE IS GETTING A LITTLE CARRIED AWAY WITH HIS AUTOTUNE, HOWEVER I KINDA RESPECT IT BC/ HIS VOCALS SOUND UNIQUE OVER THE AUTOTUNE. I MEAN WHY U THINK HE SAYS HE’S A “MARTIAN” BC/ HE’S LIKE THE ONLY RAPPER THAT CAN MAKE HIS VOICE HIT HIGH’S N LOWS WHERE IT ACTUALLY SOUNDS KINDA DOPE, EVERY OTHER RAPPER THAT TRIES THAT CAN BARELY MAKE IT DO THAT “COMPUTER TRANSITION SOUND,” WEEZY’S VOCALS BE ALL OVER THE CHARTS. PLUS U GOTTA RESPECT HIS BUSINESS SIDE OF THINGS, HE CHOSE TO USE D3 TO EXPOSE SOME OF HIS ARTISTS. I MEAN THE REVIEWER DIDN’T EVEN GET INTO THE EXPOSURE OF THE OTHER ARTISTS ON THIS TAPE…YOUNG GUDDA, N MACK MAIN=BEST ARTISTS BESIDES WEEZY ON THIS TAPE. MAGIC WAS PROBABLY THE BEST JOINT IN MY OPINION WITH LINES LIKE “I KEEP MY DICK IN MY PANTS…BUT THEM HOES TAKE IT FROM ME,” “HEY MAMA, THIS WHAT I THANK OF YOU…I WANNA FUCK YO HEAD OFF, N FUCK YO ANKLES LOOSE…..THEN DRANK THE JUICE!” LMAO. “WAIT YA’LL, I NEVER BEEN TALL, BUT IF I STAND ON MY MONEY I’LL BE WITH GOD…LIKE HALELUYAH BAABY…IT’S YOUNG MULAH BAABY” “YOUR MOTHER OWE ME NIGGA, YOUR BROTHER PAID ME NIGGA, YOUR SISTER LAID ME NIGGA…N I MADE YOUR WIFE SUCK MY WEEZY F BABY’S NIGGA!” LMAO….WEEZY RIPPED THIS TRACK….N YOUNG GUDDA HAD A TIGHT LIL VERSE WITH LINES LIKE “KNIFE LIKE SHANOBI NIGGA” REST OF THE ARTISTS KINDA SUCK THOUGH, HE SHOULDA DONE THE WHOLE TAPE W/ HIM ON 2 TRACKS W/ AUTOTUNE N THE REST REGULAR…I AGREE THOUGH D1 N D2 WERE BETTER.

  • Cakes

    weezy been wack son. Just cause he got better than wobble wobble dont mean he’s ill.
    him and t-pain both circus freaks.

  • http://foshiggadale.blogspot.com Digi, mon

    I spoke on this on my site too…….it’s absolutely ridiculous that he’s surrounded by that many yes-men that no one seems to have told him how awful this shit sounds, he might have spit 2 or 3 16s on the whole tape, and it was a shame because this reviewer was right, he did get hot beats to kill (Da Art Of Storytelling 4, Who Hotter Than Me, Get Like Me)…..i doubt i would have been as dissapointed if he hadn’t called it Dedication 3, if he called Wack Ass Mixtape Where The Only Rapping Is Done By Young Money, i wouldnt have cared as much……….sidebar, anyone else think Gudda Gudda has stepped his game up bigtime since the old SQ tapes?

  • Rim Dizzle

    To me mack maine and Drake had the hottest verses on the dedication…im starting to think Drake is nicer then wayne…real talk.

    • squadwildin

      Of course Drake is better than Wayne. Everytime Weezy has a fire verse, supposedly Drake ghostwrote that shit.

  • Tha Kidd

    y yall actin like wayne didnt rip the shit outta the 07 spring. thats when dude died off. he bashed niggas heads in wit the leak, drought 3, and pre carter 3. then the nigga killed hisself

  • O

    Drought 3 was official tissue. I can’t front. That’s when dude used to rap. How quick things change in a matter of 365 days.

  • miguel aka el mexikano

    yo i cant beleive how much wayne haz sold out….this has 2 b hiz worst mixtape hez put out so far….he needz 2 go back to hiz old style from tha carter 2 and back….after tha carter 2 then he started sellin out…..and wat tha fuck izz up with hiz monroe piercing….weezy izz becomin a beezy (bitch)….i pray 4 hip hop 2 come back 2 life

  • http://www.incilin.blogspot.com Incilin

    Yeah, that shit is pretty wack

  • dmiles

    drake went in on niggas on “stuntin”…mixtape was a letdown..weezy fallin the fuck off…and fast

  • CROOM

    Wayne just dont give a fuck. Auto-tune hook pain authored the book.

  • Chris Mac

    I’ve bin listenin to wayne since he hoped on bg’s album when bg wasnt even bg. Wayne is a sick rapper when you listen to that tape(,yes i got the tape copy mofuckas)and you listen to say The carter, dude came a long way, there is no way anyone can call him a bad mc. As far as auto-tune goes, ya waynes vocals sound a bit different from others, but its the same shit. Roger troutman, and t-pain both “started” there careers with this “tool” and ended it wit this tool(see Thr33 Rings, troutmans dead). I stand by waynes music he’s a good rapper(not a singer)but when it comes to people who like rap they like to here somebody rap wit a bit of singin on the hook, this dude is gun alienate himself(no pun intended)from us hip hop heads. Even the Carter3 was bad, he could of put out the shit that leaked and it would have bin better. See when it comes down to people, ima be the dude cruisin by listenin to the artist formely known and lil wayne!

  • xlwhite

    “dissapointing and weak”, sums it up well, doesn’t even deserve to be in the same category as D1 & D2. he needs to get back on his carter 2 shit and OFF THE VOCODER.

  • FORTY

    1st of all all these fuckin rappers need to let T-Pain stick to the Auto-Tune thing….Everybody else sounds like fuckin idiots!! that auto tune shit sounds ridiculous to me!! Every track Wayne does now is auto tuned…..him and fuck ass Kanye!!! get your own shit niggas!!!!

  • FORTY

    This nigga don’t rap no more….All he do is get on the track and holla some bullshit…”Rah, Rah, Rah, Rah, Rah, Rah, Weezy F. Baby, Rah, Rah, Rah Lick The Rapper…..The nigga is garbage…..The more money niggas make and the more fame they get…The more there shit sounds like trash!!!That’s with almost every rapper in the game….There 1st album is always almost fire because they broke and put there heart and soul in to it to get heard….

  • grandma

    this is a bad review if it doesnt state anything about young money (which it doesnt)

    Not dick riding lil wayne, because I “personally do not like the mixtape”, but if your gonna review it, at least say something about tyga or jae millz. it was supposed to be a way to show off young money’s talent also

    • squadwildin

      If its to showcase young money’s talent, you dont call include it in the Dedication MIxtape series…you make a new mixtape cuz this shit was misleading

  • Joshua

    Yall are some fuckin haters! This nigga killed plenty of tracks for just comin off tha carter 3 and this shit was better than tha carter 3. Just cause yall are haters don’t mean that that auto tune shit ain’t tight. Who else in the fuckin game keeps comin out with shit consistent good shit? Not a single motherfucker cept lil wayne. Yall keep hating. Peace.

  • balaramesh

    “Well, after listening to Dedication 3, the hottest rapper in the game must’ve melted the ice in hell cause Lil Wayne is garbage once again.”

    perfect! i know have an idea on how 500 degrees must have sounded like. wayne was absolutely horrible on this one.

    “. Who else in the fuckin game keeps comin out with shit consistent good shit? Not a single motherfucker cept lil wayne.”

    dude must only listen to wayne and gorilla zoe to believe that crap.
