    When roused by witty company (Nicki Minaj on "Mercy," J. Cole on "Green Ranger"), he sounds like the greatest rapper ever to dream of competing in the X Games.

    Although D4 will not be celebrated as much some of his other work, he does reminds all why Hova considered sending "D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune)" to "the Mixtape Weezy."

    For all its flaws, this tape still stands as evidence that Dwayne Carter isn't falling off as much as you might be hearing about.

    Lil Wayne is back with the equally confounding Dedication 4, a messy rehashing of this year's respective rap bangers.

    The worst I can say about Dedication 4 is that there isn't one moment where I wouldn't rather be listening to the often mediocre originals. There are a dozen or so good punch lines scattered on D4, enough to make it fun enough for one listen

    There's at least one cringeworthy line in nearly every song.
  7. Dec 21, 2012
    If the record's volume number wasn't enough to suggest that Lil Wayne's long-running Dedication mixtape series was getting a little stale, a few short verses into this repetitive and lyrically lazy affair should definitely set those thoughts in motion.

    This project is full of punch lines and clever word play. Buts that about it. Lil Wayne should really put out a No Ceilings 2 because that was his best mixtape and this is far from it. Full Review »
