Lil Wayne considers himself a "generous dude" when it comes to "catering" to his fans.

The rapper - who founded American record label Young Money Entertainment - released his latest musical offering Dedication 4, this week. Lil Wayne is proud of continually providing new music to his legion of followers.

"The reason why I'm recording mixtapes is because I've grown a whole fan base that just loves Wayne mixtapes," he said in an interview with Mixtape Daily.

"Me being the generous dude I am, I have to cater to those people, so that's why I do the mixtapes now."

Lil Wayne's label has signed artists Drake, Nicki Minaj and the hip-hop star himself. All three musicians are nominated for gongs at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) this week.

The 29-year-old star is proud of the success he has achieved throughout his career with both his own music and his fellow signed stars.

"The competitive person I am, it makes me feel great, awesome, excited and all that... but overall, it makes me feel undone," he explained last month when asked about his VMA nods.
