News: Lil Wayne's "Human Being" Sequel Still Lifeless
Wednesday, Nov 7, 2012 4:36PM
Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne is making fans wait a bit longer for his upcoming I Am Not A Human Being II album by taking away its December 11 release date.
Recently slated to drop next month, the new solo effort is now expected to hit store shelves in 2013.
It's been a busy year in the courtroom for Weezy, who previously settled lawsuits from producers David Kirkwood and Deezle over production royalties from "Tha Carter III." And in bad news for Wayne fans, his "I Am Not a Human Being 2" album has been pushed from its Dec. 11 release date -- it's now expected in 2013. The album, a sequel to his 2010 release, has been pushed before, with a previously scheduled release date in November. (Billboard)
A couple weeks ago, Wayne hinted at what big features will make the album.
"Production on the album -- I got people like Juicy J, Cool & Dre, David Banner on down to uh -- I mean it's so many, shoot," the YMCMB boss told MTV News Thursday in Las Vegas. The "No Worries" rapper took a moment to remember all the hitmakers who will contribute to his upcoming long player before rattling off names like Streetrunner and finally [Kanye West]. "Yeah he got some music on there," Wayne confirmed. "It's crazy, actually I don't want to give too much up but he's got a big hand in the album, you'll see." (MTV)
Prior to getting pushed back to next year, I Am Not A Human Being's follow-up received a mid-December release.
Well, that didn't take long. Just days after a November date was announced, Lil Wayne's I Am Not a Human Being II already has a new release date. The album, previously due November 13, is now scheduled to arrive just in time for the holidays on December 11, Rap-Up.com has learned. Weezy is no stranger to setbacks. His album Tha Carter IV was pushed back numerous times before it finally dropped in August 2011. The sequel to 2010's I Am Not a Human Being features the singles "My Homies Still" with Big Sean and the Detail-assisted "No Worries." (Rap-Up)
Even before the December pushback, reports claimed it would drop before Thanksgiving.
There's only about two months left before the wait is finally over. Lil Wayne has confirmed that his 10th solo album I Am Not A Human Being II will be released before the year's end. The new project is scheduled to drop on November 13. Wayne released the first installation of this album series while serving his time at Rikers Island in New York for a gun charge, and he admits that it forced him to rush recording. (RapFix)
