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.
[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.
