It's official. The release date of Lil Wayne's Dedication 6 mixtape has been announced and it's a lot closer than you may think. 

According to a DatPiff tweet posted on Wednesday (Dec. 6), the project will be dropping on Christmas Day (Dec. 25). "#D6 Yall ready......@LilTunechi @DJDRAMA http://www.DEDICATION6.com," the message reads. Take a look at it below. 

Weezy's Dedication 5 was released in 2013. Since then, the rapper and Drama have been teasing the sixth installment on social media in quite a number of posts, as well as in interviews. “I’ve also been working on some crazy s**t for a mixtape and we just didn’t have a good name for it yet,” Wayne said in a recent radio interview. “But it might as well just be a Dedication.”

Though fans of the artist are still waiting for Tha Carter V's release, Dedication 6 will have to do for now.
