Sunday, Sept. 28, marked the 38th birthday of Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., also known as rapper, Lil Wayne.
As many friends and comrades wished the Young Money CEO a happy birthday, one of them caught fans’ eyes in particular. In a few words, DJ Drama wished Lil Wayne a happy birthday in an Instagram caption while adding the following words, “D7 … 2021.”
‘D7,’ refers to the seventh installment of the popular ‘Dedication’ mixtape series by Gangsta Grillz’ own DJ Drama and Lil Wayne. The last installment Dedication 6 came in two parts, releasing the first version on Christmas Day in 2018 and the second version, Dedication 6: Reloaded, on Jan. 6, 2019.
Dedication 6 featured contributions from Nicki Minaj, Gudda Gudda, Cory Gunz, Euro, Zoey Dollaz and HoodyBaby, taking on the then-popular records “Rockstar” by Post Malone, “XO Tour Lif3” by Lil Uzi Vert, and “The Story of O.J.” by Jay-Z, just to name a few.
Just last Friday, Lil Wayne dropped the deluxe version of his 2018-project, Tha Carter V. The updated “original” version features 33 records with contributions from 2 Chainz, Post Malone, Gucci Mane, and Raekwon.
Are you ready for Dedication 7?
