While Lil Wayne fans continue to wait for Tha Carter V, they will have something to look forward to on Christmas.

On Wednesday (Dec. 6), Weezy announced his Dedication 6 mixtape will be dropping on Christmas day. "It's time!" he tweeted. "Sign up for updates and music before drop date! To My fans, I do this for y'all! #D6 MERRY CHRISTMAS."

The upcoming tape has been teased since 2016, and was last teased by Lil Wayne's manager, Cortez Bryant, in November. During an Instagram Live video, Bryant told his viewers, "Maybe D6 in November, not December, that's too long."

Following Bryant's video, Weezy confirmed the project on Twitter, writing, "Happy Thanksgiving! I'm so thankful for all my fans for standing by 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."

In related Lil Wayne news, Birdman recently discussed the Cash Money-Weezy financial issues, saying he would settle everything with the rapper. "Bitch, you think I ain't gonna make sure he straight?" said Birdman. "Suck a nigga dick, bitch. I'm gonna show all you pussy niggas that got in my business, fuck you nigga. I'm gonna show you don't play with me, nigga. I'm what you call a fucking real mastermind."

Lil Wayne's last album came in 2015, when the rapper dropped the Free Weezy Album. He also released the mixtapes Sorry 4 the Wait 2 and No Ceilings 2 in 2015.
