Lil Wayne’s “Let’s Talk It Over” CDQ Gets Released
Lil Wayne fans know that at one point in his career, he was considered the greatest rapper alive. That period took place right before and during the release of the Carter 3 album, an album that wasn't without its own controversy. Not only was it leaked a week and a half before it hit retail, but an entirely different version of the album leaked the year before that. Now we're finally getting CDQ versions of those original C3 tracks, including the one above "Let's Talk It Over."
Miami producer Street Runner, who produced "Let's Talk It Over," dropped the fully mastered, no DJ version of the track today (March 27). We have Street Runner to thank for two more recently unearthed CDQ versions of Carter 3-era leaks too - "Cry Out" and "Trouble," both of which are fucking incredible. Let's hope the talented Florida producer keeps this up. He's been blessing fans with some truly treasurable classics.
While Wayne dropped FWA last year on TIDAL (and then on Spotify and iTunes before pulling it), Carter 5 is still nowhere to be found. Despite recent appearances with Birdman, Wayne's problems with Cash Money persist, according to Mannie Fresh.
“Everything is not resolved with [Birdman] and Wayne," Mannie told Genius, but I overcame it by saying to them, ‘We can resolve all that behind the curtain, but for now, let’s make music for the people,’” Fresh said. Ironically “Hate” brought back memories of the old days and they buried the hatchet for a the time it took to create the jam. “When it all started coming together, the brotherly love came out. We did the song, then, ‘I wish you the best, we should do it more often.’”
Hear the mastered "Let's Talk It Over" below, plus the other two tracks Street Runner has leaked below.
