CHICAGO, ILLINOIS - FEBRUARY 15: Lil Wayne performs in the 2020 NBA All-Star - AT&T Slam Dunk Contest during State Farm All-Star Saturday Night at the United Center on February 15, 2020 in Chicago, Illinois.

Lil Wayne’s seventh installment in his Dedication mixtape series is on the way. On Sunday (Sept. 27) DJ Drama celebrated the rapper’s 38th birthday by announcing that Weezy’s Dedication 7 will arrive sometime in 2021.

“Happy Birthday @liltunechi ‼️ D7… 2021,” DJ Drama wrote in the caption of a throwback photo of him and the New Orleans native. This forthcoming installment will be the follow-up to 2017’s  Dedication 6, which was released on Christmas Day.

The highly-lauded mixtape series, hosted by DJ Drama, started back in April 2005 and features Tunechi’s remixes to popular hits. However, Wayne will be releasing No Ceilings 3 first. The rapper will also be prepping for Tha Carter VI. “Carter VI coming soon, but I got No Ceilings coming first, No Ceilings 3,” Wayne recently said, as Rap-Up reports.

Over the weekend, Weezy dropped a deluxe edition of Tha Carter V that features 10 new tracks including collaborations with Raekwon and 2 Chainz.
