Lil Wayne said that his new album Dedication 6 is coming very soon.
The Young Money rapper has been going through some struggles with his label Cash Money and former mentor and friend Birdman for the past two years and that has significantly affected how much new music he is able to put out. On Thanksgiving Day, November 23, Lil Wayne wrote a heartfelt thank you note to his fans while also announcing that D6 coming sooner than later.
“Happy Thanksgiving,” the New Orleans rapper wrote. “I’m so thankful for all my fans for standing by me while I’m enduring this fight with this label. I ain’t sh*t without y’all! D6 is coming y’all way soon! Thank You.” Earlier this month, his manager Cortez Bryant revealed that Dedication 6 would arrive sometime in November. The month is pretty much over but the project is not forthcoming.
Lil Wayne has been working on the mixtape since last year when he announced that it would be a collaboration between himself and DJ Drama. There is no concrete word on what’s holding up the project but sources are saying his legal battle with Cash Money has a part to play on how he releases new music. Wayne is suing Birdman and Cash Money Records for $51 million and also want a judge to release him from his contract with the label.
