“Kat Food” opens with Weezy flicking a lighter, taking an inhale, and launching into a largely a cappella run of opening bars. The arrangement continues to build from there, ultimately bringing in a high-pitched melodic line more than familiar to Missy fans, as it comes from her 2002 Under Construction hit "Work It.”
“Kat Food” follows February’s DMX-sampling “Kant Nobody,” which ultimately landed on Weezy’s greatest hits collection I Am Music in March. Amid the rollout for the Swizz Beatz-produced track, Wayne spoke with Zane Lowe for Apple Music 1 about the upcoming sixth entry in his long-running Tha Carter series.
“I never even imagined,” Wayne said at the time. “That didn’t even sound right years ago. I can’t believe we’re at Carter VI. My fans know I give my all. Go listen to my last feature and know it’s gonna be a thousand times better than that.”
In August, Skip Bayless announced that Wayne would be making weekly appearances on Undisputed. Weezy also dropped a new theme song for the show, titled "Good Morning."
Next up is a just-announced performance as part of the lineup for the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards.
