In case you haven’t heard, Lil Wayne’s new mixtape has hit the net. With a 29 song tracklist, die hard Weezy fans are rejoicing. The current installment of the Dedication series has a host of features including T.I., 2 Chains, and The Weeknd.
Truth be told, I can’t make a decision on whether this mixtape is good or not because I haven’t really sat with it long enough, and as I’m not really a Wayne fan, I need to rid myself of all my preconceived notions, and actually give it a chance. I feel as though when you listen to music, you have to give yourself time to really know what the lyrics are about. You have to try to figure out if what you are hearing is straight forward or if it is in someway symbolic.
And with 29 songs to go through, I don’t think a few hours, or even a few days, is enough time to do all of that. But that still hasn’t stopped people from giving their opinions all over social media.
Like with anything, the reviews from listeners are mixed. Some people are saying it’s amazing, and that it’s Wayne’s best work in a while. Some are saying it’s complete trash, and then there are those who think it’s okay, but nothing special.
With that, I advise readers to give it a listen, and formulate your own opinion.
