Lil Wayne recently vowed to improve the quality of his music or die trying. Early Sunday morning, he put his best foot forward with the release of his Dedication 5 mixtape. Download/stream below via DatPiff.

The 29-track efforts sees Weezy rapping over beats by Kanye West (“New Slaves”), Jay Z (“F*ckWithMeYouKnowIGotIt”), Kendrick Lamar (“Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe”), Drake (“Started From the Bottom”), and ASAP Rocky (“Fuckin Problems”), alongside a number of original compositions.

The mixtape also includes appearances by Chance the Rapper, The Weeknd, T.I., and Future, among others.

The Dedication series is a crucial component in Wayne’s long-term career and success. Stemming back to 2005, the previous four entries, particularly Dedication 2, are often cited as helping Wayne transition from his Hot Boys persona to status as YMCMB honcho.
