We propose and develop the properties of a new generalized distribution called the beta log-logistic Weibull (BLLoGW) distribution. This model contain several new distributions such as beta log-logistic Rayleigh, beta log-logistic exponential, exponentiated log-logistic Weibull, exponentiated log-logistic Rayleigh, exponentiated log-logistic exponential,  log-logistic Weibull, log-logistic Rayleigh and log-logistic distributions as special cases. Structural properties of this generalized distribution including series expansion of the probability density function and cumulative distribution function, hazard function, reverse hazard function, quantile function, moments, conditional moments, mean deviations, Bonferroni and Lorenz curves, R\'enyi entropy and distribution of order statistics are presented. The parameters of the distribution are estimated using maximum likelihood estimation technique. A Monte Carlo simulation study is conducted to examine the bias and mean square error of the maximum likelihood estimates. A real dataset is used to illustrate the applicability and usefulness of the new generalized distribution.
