Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne has spilled his guts on the new I Am Not A Human Being II cover art, which he had fellow rap star Kanye West create.
According to Weezy F. Baby, Ye encouraged and explained the significance of using a demonic-looking butterfly in front of an all-black background.
“(Kanye) said, you know, man, let me do your cover. I saw the cover and I approved it. He had an explanation behind it – he said, he chose the moth butterfly thing because it has so many different stages of life, and it goes through so many forms and changes, and no one can figure it out, and it’s always beautiful. At a time it’s ugly and at a time it’s beautiful too. And that’s me.” (NOLA)
He also briefly discussed what fans can look forward to from the upcoming solo effort.
“I have a lot of guests on the album. That’s what’s unusual about the album. I’m usually a two or three feature-type guy. But this album, I have a lot of features because I have a lot of friends, a lot of people that wanted to help out. I just appreciate them all. And I have a lot of different production on it too. I got Juicy J, David Banner, Soulja Boy – and that’s the production.” (NOLA)
The new album’s cover art bubbled online earlier in the week.
