In addition, DJ Drama confirmed the project by retweeting Wayne's message, as well as discussing it with MTV's RapFix Live. "Me [and] Cortez [Bryant] had been talkin' back [and] forth for ...[a]bout a year that it was almost time for D4" said the mixtape deejay. "He said Tunechi had been mentioning it and was gearing up. During the Vegas stop on 'Club Paradise' tour, Tez told me it was a 100% go."
"I told him thank god, [because] the fans invade my [T]witter daily asking about it! Dram & Wayne is a dangerous combination. Shout out to the Mixtape Weezy. Get ready."
