Lil Wayne dropped his latest mixtape “Dedication 6” on Christmas day, and it was one hell of a great present.
Here’s our three favorite tracks from it and the bars that blew our minds.
- Fly Away ( DNA)
DNA is undeniably one of the best beats of 2017. Featuring a thumping bass and ridiculously catchy melody line, we knew Weezy’s remix was going to be a hit. The only question remained, what would he freestyle over it?
Wonder no more.
At 3:03, the back half of the beat hits, and that’s where things start to get pretty interesting lyrically.
I already got the ganja
I already got the Fanta
All-black like Uganda
Hair back like E. Honda, wait
For reference, E. Honda is this fat ass Japanese sumo wrestler from the video games series Street Fighter.
Seems like Lil Wayne has seconds thoughts about emulating him.
Alone in a mansion, I’m Macaulay Culkin
Thought about your coffin and started barfing
Thought about your offsprings, how they prolly starving
Thought about this artful shit, how I’m so thoughtful
Walking on the marble, feeling like Ricardo
Walking ’round like the campus of Harvard
Shoutout my nigga Swizz, niggas getting smarter
Tryna hit the books and nigga hit the target
Sitting on the charter, talking ’bout the targets
Waiting on departure, waiting on a sculpture
Make sure my vultures keep it extra cultured
Make sure my Barbie keep an extra Barbie
My dick is her electric chair, feel the voltage
And her pussy better smell like a orchid
Wetter than a wishing well, need a quarter
Man, Macaulay Culkin references never get old.
Near the very end, Weezy seriously picks up the pace and mimics the frenetic delivery that we saw from Lamar on the original.
You never been to jail, ain’t never been in a Corolla
Then I roll a blunt ’bout as thick as a Samoan
This is that 6 shit, the sickness is showing
The sickness is spreading, the disease is growing
The bitches is hoeing, the witnesses knowing
The dollars are torn, they fishing for coins
I continue going, I get to the boar
And I rip off his horns, six in the morning
Then I just yawn and forget to mourn
And give to the star, it’s 6, the reward
Now this is a Corolla bad ass enough for Weezy to ride in.
2. 5 Star Ft. Niki Minaj
Here’s another track where the instrumental was just too flame to not do a remix, and the autotune Wayne adds actually works. To be honest, we think Niki’s performance could have been better on this one. The rhyming felt a little forced, and the melody didn’t hit you in the face as hard as Post Malone’s version.
Probably our favorite part about this song is Weezy’s blatant disdain for “normal” cars. He talks about it…A LOT.
Pop some X for my exotic dancer, she start crying said her job hard
Switch her whip out put her in a Mercedes now she screamin’ rest in peace to Honda
Switch her whip out put her in a Mercedes now she screamin’ rest in peace to Mazda
Put her ass up in a dumb Mercedes now she screamin’ rest in peace to Smart Car
Switch her whip out put her in a Mercedes now she screamin’ rest in peace to Kia
Switch her whip out put her in a Mercedes now she screamin’ rest in peace to Uber
Cocaine on her navel, lick it so my tongue can go ham
Put my face up in her pussy and my thumb in her ass
Make her do the jumpman, ayy
Not sure even what to say about the line above, but a lot of people are going to be repeating it at clubs very soon.
Act a jackass like Steve-o
Disappear like Ne-Yo
Leave red flag on your screen though
Leave a red flag ’round your queen’s throat
Leave a blood stain on your mink flo’
Like a red stain, on clean snow
That Ne-yo line is actually a pretty cool double entendre-
- Ne-y0: the R&B artist who has basically disappeared from the music industry since 2012
- Neo from the matrix, who literally disappears.
3: Yeezy Sneakers
On this track, he remixes Kodak Black and XXXTentacions 2017 song “Roll In Peace”. The track was originally produced by CuBeatz & London On Da Track.
It’s largely a diss track, and the wordplay hits hard.
You need to patch your weave, bitch
You need to pack your things, bitch
You on some “I had a dream” shit
It’s back to reality, bitch
She don’t even roll the weed
All she do is roll her eyes
All she know is social media
We don’t even socialize
I feel like North Korea, even though we oceanside
All I say is “mama-mia”, she don’t even know her moms
All she say is “this your pussy”
She say that to most of the guys
She don’t even know it’s dry
I can’t even open fire
She don’t even close her eyes
She don’t even close the blinds
She spit all over the D
I’m sticky like porcupines
She don’t even compromise
Weezy doesn’t mince words.
Here’s another great part that hits post hook #1:
And you don’t even believe in Yeezus
Why you wearing Yeezy sneakers
With his marriage to Kim Kardashian, Kanye West has gotten plenty of shade thrown his way. People are hating on him, but still wearing his crazy expensive brand like it’s a religion.
it also flips the original lyrics from Kodak
He don’t even believe in Jesus
Why you got a Jesus piece?
All in all, this mixtape has some real bangers and is shaping up to be really well received.
We’ll find out soon enough!
