Lil Wayne Appears On BET 106 & Park To Promote 500 Degreez Album

Similar to the posts earlier this month and at the end of March, I have decided to do another #ThrowbackThursday article for today here on LilWayneHQ.com.

For this week’s throwback post, you can watch Lil Wayne pay a visit to BET’s “106 & Park” television show back in 2002 to promote his 500 Degreez album. He was joined later on by Birdman, Mannie Fresh and TQ.

In his interview, Wayne spoke on why the 500 Degreez project title is similar to Juvenile’s 400 Degreez album name, having the very first sample on Cash Money Records with “Don’t Look Any Further” on his “Way Of Life” single, and more! Have you seen it before?

Today is a different type of post on LilWayneHQ.com, but I am sure it is one you will all find cool! A former employee of Kanye West‘s creative content company DONDA has shared alternative packaging concepts for Lil Wayne‘s I Am Not A Human Being II album.

We all know DONDA designed the official artwork for Wayne‘s IANAHB2 project that came out back in March, 2013, but now Joe Perez has released the earlier designs that they submitted a week before the cover they went with in the end was revealed online.

Executive Creative Direction: Kanye West.
Creative Direction: Virgil Abloh.
Art Direction: JJJJound, Heron Preston, Nate Brown, and Joe Perez.
Design: Joe Perez.
Assistant Design: GEO.

You can check out an alternative version of the I Am Not A Human Being II album packaging concept that has never been released to the public before after the jump below. Do you like this more than the official version we got in the end? Shouts to Kieran for the heads up!
