Lil Wayne’s Vaulted ‘Tha Carter III’ Track “Dinnertime” Released

blame it on Meka July 17, 2017

Lil Wayne is still continuing the fight for his independence but recently surprised fans with a four-pack of tracks, In Tune We Trust. Now, a previously vaulted throwback has surfaced.

Called “Dinnertime,” the Deezle-produced track was first mentioned via Wayne’s interview with Blender Magazine back in 2008 (h/t to LWHQ):

[Wayne] instructs his engineer, Darius “Deezle” Harrison, to fire up a new song; as soon as he hears his own music, Wayne grows wild, his slow-mo confidence shoved abruptly aside by a raging, theatrical egotism. The track is called “Dinnertime,” in which Wayne compares other rappers to food and then eats them, chewing noises included. Faced with his prodigious skills, he stutter-steps around the room, headbanging with increasing violence. “I’m too sick,” he says, revving himself up. “Too sick! I don’t even wanna listen to my own shit, ’cause it makes me want to kill somebody!” The moment the song ends, Wayne bellows at no one in particular, “F**k yo’ favorite rapper!” He tells Deezle to dial up another track and reiterates his point, stomping his Nikes to emphasize each syllable: “F**K! YO’! FAV! OR! ITE! RAP! PER!”

Originally planned for Tha Carter III, the track never made is past the cutting room floor. However, it can now be heard below.
