OFFICIAL: Lil Wayne “Dedication 4” Cover

Well everyone…it’s my birthday and this is the best present I could have even ever IMAGINED to receive. Last night I received an email response from Karen Civil saying that none other than my idol, Lil Wayne had seen my artwork and liked it alot and he was going to use my cover for the upcoming mixtape, Dedication 4! I almost fainted. Seriously, I’m still shaking…so excuse any improper english in this post! This is a dream come true. I cannot believe that dreams like this actually can come true. I constantly am working to even be noticed by Wayne or even anyone a quarter of his stature. This is huge for me personally.

I cannot thank Karen Civil enough for showing this cover to Mr. Carter. And I do have to thank @JackGambro(Twitter/RapItUpDesign on Lil Wayne HQ) for giving me the inspiration. He did a TRUKFIT inspired cover and I loved the idea and knew I had to draw a Lil Wayne version of Tommy, the TRUKFIT character. Below see a picture of the Lil Wayne TRUKFIT Character I created via the old school mediums…pencil, marker, and paper.

DREAMS DO COME TRUE. Young moooolllaaaa babbyyyyy.

    Bro i came across your story while i was looking for ideas for my new cover. And you motivated me to keep grinding and doing what i love doing. If you get this let me know how much you charge for covers. Im a new artist coming up from Cali and I’m just asking for a little help… Thanx in advance…
