Time to hit the road. MTV reports that Lil Wayne is set to headline an eight-week nationwide tour featuring T-Pain, Keyshia Cole and Gym Class Heroes starting December 18th.

Wayne is also scheduled to release his highly anticipated Dedication 3 mixtape with DJ Drama this Thursday(11/11). Similar to the two previous installments, the tape features Wayne rippinng known instrumentals like DJ Drama's "The Art Of Storytelling Pt.4," Soulja Boy's "Shootouts" and Lil Jon and Too $hort's "Dick Pleaser."

The 23-track disc features guest verses on nearly every cut. But rather than collaborate with established artists, Weezy is mostly sharing mic time with Young Money and signees and affiliates, including Nicki Minaj, Drake, Gudda Gudda, Mack Maine and especially Jae Millz, who appears on nearly half of the records. Drama affiliates Willie Da Kid and LA The Darkman also appear numerous times on the tape. -Bruce Moses
