Alright man, it’s about that time again. We apologize for not delivering any “Real Talk” pieces for a minute, but we only write when something really inspires us. With that said, here we are.
Most of y’all should know by now, but yesterday Lil Wayne announced that the Dedication 4 mixtape would be arriving next month. Now, this would be dope news pre-2010, but in 2012 we’re not so sure. The Dedication series is arguably the best of all time, top 5 no debating. Those tapes are what really got Weezy recognized as one of rap’s elite in the mid 2000′s, but this was before he was sober and doing kick flips in his backyard. Look man, ain’t nothing wrong with your new hobby, but we don’t need to hear about that shit in every verse. I’m not tryna hear 15 songs about how much you love your mini vert ramp, and about all the tricks you can land on a good day. Take one song, dedicate it to skating, get it all out, then leave it there. Don’t even put that song on the tape bruh, make it a bonus joint or some shit.
I ain’t trying to hear no commercials in my songs either man. I probably wouldn’t wear Trukfit if you gave me the shit, and I damn sure ain’t doing no sexual favors for a tee or something…no homo.
Now I’m about to speak for the entire Hip Hop community on this one, leave them shit rappers off this mixtape. Don’t be like 50 and try to force muhfuckers like Kidd Kidd into our headphones. Don’t even give Lil Chuckee & Lil Twist directions to the fucking studio you’re at bruh, don’t even let them know you got a mixtape coming out. Tell em somebody hacked your Twitter and sent that shit out. Forget you even signed half them motherfuckers you got on your roster. Let Drake get a couple authentic verses, let Birdman talk shit on one track, and that’s it. Get a guest verse from Curren$y if possible, and call it a wrap.
Ok, now onto more pressing matters. This is more of a plea, rather than a “Real Talk” at this point. Don’t fuck this shit up Wayne. Don’t ruin my favorite mixtape series of all time, that’s all I’m asking. You got Drama back riding shotgun, he’s gonna be shouting out all types of brilliantly ignorant one liners, you got no excuse to fuck this up. I’m not even asking for the old Wayne back, I’m not that guy. I’m asking that you deliver what you’re capable of. You’ve put out a few hot verses these past couple months, so I know you still have it in you. I defended The Carter IV man, I kinda like that shit a lil, but no more passes. No Sorry 4 The Wait, which was trash minus like 2-3 songs. Remember, Drama’s sending these beats to the Mixtape Weezy, not the X-Games Tunechi. Keep that in mind when recording bruh. Don’t put out a dud like 50 Cent did with that Lost Tape bullshit, I still can’t believe Drama even attached his name to that garbage. That tape hit the recycle bin in record time, but that’s neither here nor there.
That’s about it. Just don’t fuck this up. You ain’t gotta give us a masterpiece, just don’t give us some trash. Most Hip Hop fans already gave up on you, but for those of us who are left, this is your last chance. Real muhfuckers can’t ride with you much longer. We forgave you for the leopard jeggings at the VMA’s, but we gotta draw the line somewhere dawg. You can’t fuck up this legendary mixtape series and get away with it, so I’m just putting you on notice. Ima beat you with your skateboard if you fuck this one up fam, I’m serious. If you ruin this I’m typing in my name, and clocking out like Morgan Freeman at the end of The Dark Knight. Sincerely, an honest fan.
