Do It Again (Mastered)
Veteran producer StreetRunner is at it again, releasing another finely mastered version of an unreleased Lil Wayne track, recorded when Weezy was in his prime. The gift StreetRunner has dropped off today is a remastered edition of Wayne's "Do It Again," one of the many tracks that leaked online shortly before the release of 2008's The Carter III.
Let Me Love You
Ariana Grande Feat. Lil Wayne
Ariana Grande's third studio album, Dangerous Woman, will arrive next month, and yesterday, we got our first look at the tracklist, which revealed features from Future, Nicki Minaj, Macy Gray, and Lil Wayne. Grande has now officially released the Wayne collaboration, a subdued duet called "Let Me Love You," which is a reminder of Wayne's underrated ability as an R&B songwriter, bringing us back to his 40-produced slow-burner, "Single".
MFN Right (Remix)
2 Chainz Feat. Lil Wayne
Prior to the release of his joint project with Lil Wayne, Collegrove, 2 Chainz had been riding relatively high off the success of his the uber catchy "MFN Right," which appeared on his solo mixtape Felt Like Cappin. The song features relatively simple production from Mike WiLL and Zaytoven, carried by a flute melody and sparse keys, as well as relatively simple lyrics, but to great effect.
Raw Dizzy Feat. Lil Wayne
Is there heaven for a street nigga? This is the question New Orleans rapper Raw Dizzy poses on his new single "Heaven." He waxes bars re: the question at hand over a haunting Ray Luminais-produced beat for two solid verses before turning over the mic to Lil Wayne, with whom he goes way back (anyone remember Sqad Up?) "Heaven" has the same premise as "Thugz Mansion" but an entirely different feel/outlook on life. Give it a listen and let us know what you think in the comments. Quotable Lyrics
Order More (Remix)
G-Eazy Feat. Lil Wayne & Yo Gotti
If you're a G-Eazy fan, you're already very familiar with "Order More," one of the more immediate records from the rapper's recent When It's Dark Out LP. For those who haven't been paying attention to the G-Eazy wave, The Bay emcee has shared a new remix of the track that recruits both Lil Wayne and Yo Gotti, which should earn it quite a few more ears.
Let's Talk It Over (Remix)
Street Runner has been doing the lord's work by releasing both properly mastered and previously unreleased records from Lil Wayne's Carter III sessions over the last few weeks. Unfortunately, it seems the well may have run dry, but it hasn't stopped the producer from sharing a new track this week, this time remixing "Let's Talk It Over," the leaked track he delivered in its full CDQ glory a little while back.
Let's Talk It Over (Mastered)
Streetrunner has already blessed us in 2016 with two unbelievable tracks from Lil Wayne's Tha Carter III sessions -- "Trouble" and "Cry Out (Amen)". Now he gives us a third, "Let's Talk It Over".
Duffle Bag Boy [Throwback]
Playaz Circle Feat. Lil Wayne
It's hard to believe, but "Duffle Bag Boy," the debut single from Playaz Circle, the duo of Dolla Boy and Tity Boi, is over eight years old. Though a lot has changed in the game since then, Lil Wayne and Tity Boi, now 2 Chainz, are still making music together. They dropped off a banger today, titled "Gotta Lotta," the first CDQ release off their joint album, ColleGrove, which is set to arrive tomorrow.
Lil Wayne & 2 Chainz
Yesterday, Kanye West shared the artwork to Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz' collaborative album, ColleGrove. Kanye's tweet might've helped many of us realize the potential dopeness of the joint release, but in any case, the album's one day away, and Weezy and Tity have just shared a new single to maximize the anticipation.
As he did last month with the release of “Cry Out (Amen),” producer StreetRunner decided to liberate another mastered version of a classic Lil Wayne record today with “Trouble,” which surfaced nearly ten years ago while Weezy recording Tha Carter III.
Zayn Feat. Lil Wayne
After lending some vocals on Chris Brown’s remix to “Back To Sleep” last week, former One Direction member Zayn Malik decides to come through today and share a new remix of his lead single “Pillowtalk,” featuring YMCMB boss man Lil Wayne.
Bling Bling [Throwback]
B.G. Feat. Birdman, Lil Wayne, Mannie Fresh, Juvenile & Turk
Mannie Fresh delighted fans this morning with the release of "Hate" featuring Lil Wayne, Birdman, & Juvenile. The old squad!! "Hate" will appear on a Mannie Fresh album dropped this summer via Mass Appeal. HNHH celebrates by throwing it back this week to "Bling Bling" -- the 1999 Cash Money anthem that made "bling" a thing.
Mannie Fresh Feat. Juvenile, Lil Wayne & Birdman
During Mass Appeal's recent AMA session on Reddit's HipHopHeads thread, the label/publication hinted that they'd be behind the release of an album from a New Orleans legend this year-- while some hypothesized they were referring to Lil Wayne, it seems the real N.O. legend is Mannie Fresh. Today Mass Appeal has released the first single from Mannie's upcoming album, which finds him linking with his once-frequent collaborators and fellow OGs, Lil Wayne, Birdman and Juvie, for "Hate."
Yo Gotti Feat. Lil Wayne
It's tough to beat "Down In The DM," but if that's what you're looking to accomplish, enlisting Lil Wayne and Mike WiLL certainly seems like a good route. "Bible," a new track from Gotti's imminent The Art Of Hustle album, builds on the high BPM creepiness of it's predecessor, but hits with just a bit more energy, as Wayne brings some animated auto-tuned vocals while the producer provides a pummeling bassline.
Curren$y Feat. Lil Wayne
Back in his short-lived Cash Money days, a collaboration with Lil Wayne wasn't as much of a rarity for Curren$y. Recently we heard the two reunite on "Bottom Of The Barrell," but the new Alchemist-produced "Fat Albert" may be an even better use of their dynamic, allowing both rappers to find their own way through the gritty loop.
Cry Out (Amen)
Dedicated Weezy fans know that some of his best raps lie in leaks and unfinished cuts that have made their way to the Internet but never onto any official projects. One such track is "Cry Out (Amen)," which surfaced circa 2006 in unmastered quality. Today, the song's producer, StreetRunner, who has been making beats for Wayne for nearly a decade, has come through with a huge surprise and released the CDQ version of "Cry Out (Amen)."
Back On The Bullshyt
2 Chainz Feat. Lil Wayne
As we await the arrival of 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne's promised collaborative project, the two have united on a new track from Chainz' surprise EP, Felt Like Cappin. The track expands on the chemistry the two have already established on tracks like "Rich As Fuck" and "I Do It," each coming through with punchline-driven raps, but Chainz plays things straight as far as flows go, while Weezy comes through with an auto-tuned slither, adding some melody to the mix. Meanwhile, the pounding instrumental comes courtesy of Cardo.
Lil Twist Feat. Lil Wayne
“LA Traffic” is one of the stand out tracks from his recent mixtape The Golden Child 2, and not just because we get a vintage Weezy verse right off the bat. The proverbial (and literal, now) Golden Child of Young Money goes in the track as well.
Lil Wayne Feat. Future & Yo Gotti
Like the first installment, Lil Wayne's No Ceilings 2 is primarily made up of freestyles, but there are a few original tracks scattered among the 24-song collection. One of the best of those brand new cuts is "Cross Me," which finds Weezy working with Future, a natural move considering he spends a good chunk of the tape going in over the Atlanta rapper's beats.
We've already received quite a few leaks from Wayne's upcoming No Ceilings 2 mixtape, which have primarily been remixes of Future and Drake, and some R&B numbers (not to mention a great reunion with Mannie Fresh). As much as we've loved everything so far, it's good to hear Weezy on some hard, minimal production, as he takes on 2 Chainz' "Watch Out," which obviously inspires a memorable, spontaneous verse. At one point he even point sout that he sat down with 2 Chainz and told him he was going to kill the beat. How did he do?
