With every passing hour, Lil Wayne (a.k.a. Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr.) fans are getting more and more frustrated, as the rapper promised his devotees that his latest mixtape, Dedication 4, would be ready to drop on August 30, and there's still radio silence from Weezy's general direction.

Lil Wayne, 29, previously delayed the release of the album, ostensibly out of respect for 2 Chainz's album release, but now it seems like there might have been ulterior motives behind the altruistic move. Fans were waiting at midnight on Thursday for Dedication 4's drop, according to MTV. DJ Drama tipped fans off by retweeting one fan's question: "RT @dshears: @DJDRAMA sooooo… Is it worth stayin up tonight?

The landing page for the album also reads "Dedication 4 is currently unavailable." It has been recently revealed that Lil Wayne has announced that the new release date for the album will be September 3 at 12 p.m.
