The Lil Wayne and DJ Drama mixtape "Dedication 4" has officially been delayed.
While rappers delaying albums is nothing new, the delay of this mixtape comes after Wiz Khalifa's and Curren$y's Live In Concert was delayed to clear samples. No word on if this is the cause of the D4 delay, but after the Mac Miller lawsuits, it seems that some of the bigger names in hip hop are weary about using other artists' beats on free tapes.
Mack Maine, the president of Young Money, took to Twitter to break the bad news to fans that the mixtape will not drop today. No future date has been released, as he only said "we will announce the new date soon".
