StreetRunner is back at it again with another pristine rework of vaulted material from Lil Wayne's heyday. Who could've guessed that one of this year's most exciting release series would consist of remastered versions of decade-old Weezy leaks. Today's exclusive is titled "Heavenly Father," and StreetRunner says that it's an alternate version of "Pray to the Lord," which he released last week. The hook was also used on a Fat Joe track called "Heavenly Father," which appeared on his The Darkside Vol. 1 album.
"I produced this version to give the song more of an epic feel," says StreetRunner. Epic is right. The sample from which the song gets its title sends a jolt up my spine every time it drops. This here is an intimate conversation between Wayne and the Lord, so make sure you listen with no distractions.
I wonder will I lose control of the Maserati?
And hit some tree, just being young me
Is there a heaven for G's and soldiers?
I can't go to hell, cause I'd take over
I feel it approaching, but I ain't scared
I made that bed, and I should rest in peace
