Lil Wayne's new "Dedication 5" mixtape has been "postponed for a short period".
Lil Wayne's highly anticipated Dedication 5 mixtape was set to drop at 5 PM EST, but an announcement from Wayne's camp has confirmed that the project will be pushed back. While a new drop time/date has not been provided, the statement says that Weezy is just putting the finishing touches on the project-- so it could still drop sooner than later.
Read the statement below.
"The release of Dedication 5 has been temporarily postponed for a short period while Wayne puts finishing touches on it - including another new song. Stay tuned for an update."
According to Mack Maine, the project should surface in a couple of hours.

[Update: Wayne Says He's Sent D5 To DJ Drama]
While it was starting to seem like we may not be getting Dedication 5 for a while, Wayne has now confirmed that the project is "done," and has been sent to DJ Drama. No telling how long the mastering process will take (or if Drama is even up yet), but if nothing else, it's probably safe to expect D5 at some point today.
Read Wayne's tweets, and check out some footage of him recording the "last" verse on D5 below.
Update: Drama has confirmed he's awake and working on the tape! He's also posted photo on his Instagram, which shows that the tape may be 29 tracks. View the photo below.
