Lil Wayne is back with a new mixtape.

On Dedication 5–the latest installment to his popular series with DJ Drama–Wayne honors other rappers in the game by rhyming over their popular beats. This 29-track mix features Wayne re-imagining Kanye West’s “New Slaves,” Drake’s “Started From The Bottom,” and Kendrick Lamar’s “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe.”

The mixtape also features guest spots from Chance The Rapper, Birdman, Mack Maine, 2 Chainz and The Weeknd on the opening track “I’m Good,” along with T.I., who is featured on three tracks.

Wayne dropped Dedication 5 on September 1, two days later than originally expected, and eight days after he took to Twitter to apologize to fans for not working hard enough over the course of the year.

Not that Wayne wasn’t busy this year. He released his album, I Am Not a Human Being II back in March. He later made news for being hospitalized with seizures related to epilepsy, along with his controversial lyrics about Emmett Till on Future’s “Karate Chop (remix).” Wayne later apologized for his verse on the song.

Drake announced that Wayne would appear on his upcoming album, Nothing Was The Same.
