Dedication 3 is a mixtape by DJ Drama and Lil Wayne. It is the sequel to its predecessors, The Dedication and the highly successful Dedication 2, becoming the third in Lil Wayne's "Gangsta Grillz" pentalogy. Lil Wayne also told MTV, "Tha Carter IV is nice but you need to be looking for Dedication 3".[2] Although Dedication 3 was a major success, it failed to match that of its predecessors but did gain some attention. The mixtape has sold over 70,000 copies in the United States, despite being available for free download. Besides the interludes, a majority of the mixtape has Wayne using auto-tune and rapping alongside artists signed to his label, Young Money Entertainment.
