Eight years after Kendrick Lamar dropped his Lil Wayne-influenced mixtape C4, Weezy gets inspired by K-Dot on D6.
Ahead of next week’s release of his Dedication 6 mixtape, Tunechi unleashed a preview of what appears to be his very own remix of “DNA.” a standout cut from Kung Fu Kenny’s DAMN.
“#D6 I might just release some early!!” Wayne wrote in the caption for the video.
Due Christmas Day (Dec. 25), D6 marks Lil Wayne’s return to the Dedication mixtape series with DJ Drama. The last one dropped in September 2013.
Wayne announced the latest installment last year. “I’ve also been working on some crazy shit for a mixtape and we just didn’t have a good name for it yet,” he said. “But it might as well just be a Dedication.”
The project lands while Tha Carter V remains in legal limbo. Weezy is currently suing Cash Money for $51 million over a financial dispute.
