Lil Wayne has blessed followers with a gem we didn’t even know we wanted. Digging deep into the vault, the Young Money rapper dropped “Ya Dig,” which apparently dates again to his Tha Carter III days. It sounds like it’s recent out of a time capsule, using Tarik Azzouz production and a pattern of Margie Joseph’s “Stop! In the Name of Love,” which the rapper also used on his ’07 The Leak monitor “Gossip.”
According to Lil Wayne HQ, the monitor was initially meant to hit on Sept. 24 but was pushed again so it wouldn’t intervene with Wayne’s collab tape with Rich the Kid, Trust Fund Babies.
Despite the precise conception of “Ya Dig” being unknown, the starvation in Wayne’s voice is palpable. Whether it’s him delivering Vince Lombardi name-drops like he’s been heard spitting on later tracks such as “Ignant Shit,” or simply boasting about how his reign has only simply begun, this sounds like a song that might have match neatly on the latter half of Tha Carter III.
Not long before Wayne dropped Trust Fund Babies with Rich the Kid, Young Money president Mack Maine went on Twitter Spaces and hinted that more full-length choices from the rapper is likely to be on the way.
“Anybody that’s like a Wayne fan, they know that I Am Not A Human Being III is up, coming up soon,” Maine revealed. “Wayne and Rich the Kid have a project together that’s coming out soon. ColleGrove  is coming out soon, with him and 2 Chainz—I was about to say Tity Boi, we still call him Tity Boi. But uh, yeah, so it’s a lot of music Wayne’s working on.”
