Lil Wayne sets date for Human Being II

Releases

Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne’s skate phase apparently set aside (for now, anyway), the rapper has just assigned a release date to his several times-postponed new LP ‘I Am Not A Human Being II’. Buyable as of 18 Feb 2013, it will feature guest cameos by Drake, Diplo, Juicy J and (maybe) Nicki Minaj, plus packaging designed by Kanye West.

Characterising the record, the sequel to 2010’s original ‘Human Being’, in a convo with MTV, the rapper said: “My music was always bright – music for the club or for the radio – this music here is for us to like and us to like only, and I never put music out like that. Maybe to everybody else they’re probably like, ‘Man, your music always been so crazy’, but to me, the music that’s on this album is more so – like it or not”.
