Cortez Bryant recently told SPIN that Lil Wayne‘s upcoming I Am Not A Human Being EP will now be a full album. Tez said that the songs on IANAHB were originally going to be on Tha Carter IV, but will be released now so that Weezy can fill C4 with new music instead: “I know once he got out of jail those songs would be so old to him” Bryant explains.
Tez Poe also told SPIN that Wayne has been busy in prison writing down lyrics in a notepad which he will record when he gets out (don’t forget Tunechi hasn’t written anything down since around 2002). Bryant said Wayne will immediately hit the studio once he gets out as well and that he will most likely release another mixtape of new material before releasing Tha Carter IV next year (I’m guessing Dedication 4).
Below, you can read a few highlights from the songs on I Am Not A Human Being which will have heavily auto-tuned vocals, drugged-out beats and loads of guest spots from his YMCMB family:
• “Young Money Salute”, featuring Lil Chuckee, Lil Twist and Nicki Minaj, is a banging, minor-key anthem, with Minaj doling out lines like “Camouflage me ‘cus Young Money is a navy.”
• “I Am Not A Human Being” mixes a heavy boom-bap with distorted guitar riffs–a rock sound similar to the one he tackled on Rebirth.
• “What’s Wrong With Them” crosses choppy synth melodies reminiscent of Wayne’s smash “Lollipop” with Wayne boasting, “Fuck the system and the pussy and all that.”
• “With You”, an R&B-style collaboration with Drake, is a hilarious ballad about seducing a Native-American woman. “Tall glass of Merlot get her in the mode,” he raps. “Two tall glasses of Merlot get her out her robe.”
