To quote Scarface, Lil Wayne is reloaded. He remixes Blac Youngsta and Lil Yachty’s “Hip-Hopper” in his new song “Big Bad Wolf.” And once he clears his throat and finds his footing, “Big Bad Wolf” becomes this dazzling display of technical abilities. Lil Wayne doesn’t stop to breathe for the next four minutes, and yet without stumbling, he navigates lines such as, “Sound like a symphony or opera, too though / Hittin’ some new notes / And I am the maestro and you just a typo / Private flight, don’t fly in too low / I’m wiser than you know, a private school flow.”
“Big Bad Wolf” appears on the upcoming Dedication 6 Reloaded, which follows Dedication 6 from Christmas Day. It is also the latest example of how Weezy has re-focused his efforts on freestyling — how he first took over the game as a solo artist, when he and DJ Drama launched his Dedication mixtape series back in 2005. Dedication 6 Reloaded also reportedly features Wayne and Drake’s remix of Jay Z’s “Family Feud,” though fans will soon find out for sure: As of yesterday (January 23), Wayne announced that he has finished Dedication 6 Reloaded.
