Grab a seat at the table because Lil Wayne is serving up something special with his latest song, Dinnertime.
Talk about spontaneity. Out of nowhere a never before heard track has been released by the legendary rapper Lil Wayne. If you’re wondering why this song feels like vintage Wayne, that’s because it is. The track Dinnertime, produced by Onhel, was recorded in 2007. For reasons unknown Dinnertime never made it to his best-selling album Tha Carter III.
Although talk of this forgotten track surfaced during 2008. It was just swept under the rug. Wayne covered the Blender Magazine in that same year, and this is what was mentioned:
“He [Lil 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’. I’m n 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 because it makes me want to kill somebody!’ The moment the song ends, Wayne bellows at no one in particular: ‘Fuck yo’ favorite rapper!’ He tells Deezle to dial up another track and reiterates his point, stomping his Nikes to emphasize each syllable: ‘FUCK! YO’! FAV! OR! ITE! RAP! PER!’”
Dinnertime gives you a nostalgic feel of when Weezy was on top of the world. He is still arguably the “best rapper alive.” Wayne recently released a three track EP titled, In Tune We Trust. The world is still anticipating the release of Tha Carter III. While we wait, take a listen to Dinnertime below.
