On his ESPN blog, the rapper revealed that he has been recording for a new studio album plus a mixtape.
Lil Wayne is already back in the studio to bake the next "Tha Carter" installment. The rapper announced through his new blog on ESPN.com that "Tha Carter IV" is on the way and so is a new mixtape called "Dedication 3".
"I've been busy in the studio, and right now I'm working on a mix tape, along with Tha Carter IV," read Wayne's entry. "The mixed tape you can expect real soon. It's called Dedication 3, and it's going to be Gangsta Grillz by DJ Drama. And then right after that, I'm putting that same mix tape out with twenty extra songs for free on my website."
Wayne's latest effort "Tha Carter III" was named the best-selling album this year with more than 2.5 million copies sold in United States only.
Beside flying solo, Wayne is also working with T-Pain and Fall Out Boy. With the former, he is slated to release a duet album called "T-Wayne" in 2009 and has so far finished about three songs. Meanwhile, he has also done a song with the latter, which will appear in the band's fifth studio album "Folie a Deux".
