The New Orleans rapper collaborates with hip-hop stars Nicki Minaj, 2 Chainz, Drake and more in the new album.
After a rough month this past February, getting slammed for derogatory lyrical reference to civil rights hero Emmett Till in his song "Karate Chop", and recently, getting dissed by Pitbull for his Miami Heat rants, Lil Wayne tries not to be derailed from his forthcoming album's launch. He does so by releasing the complete tracklist of his 10th studio album entitled "I Am Not a Human Being II".
Wayne's new LP is the sequel to his 2010 album "I Am Not a Human Being", which reached the top spot in the Billboard 200 albums chart while the New Orleans rapper was in prison for attempted criminal possession of a weapon. The only other artist to achieve such feat was rapper/actor Tupac Shakur in 1995, with his multi-platinum album "Me Against the World".
In the new album, which will finally be released on March 26 after being pushed back a number of times, Wayne teams up with hip-hop's current crop of stars such as "American Idol" judge Nicki Minaj in "Lay You Down" and Canadian rapper Drake in "Bitches Love Me" along with Future. Most recently, he dropped his "Rich as F*ck" collaboration track with 2 Chainz.
Just before revealing the tracklist, Wayne also unveiled the cover art for his new studio effort. He enlisted the help of Kanye West's creative content company DONDA for the project, which also handled the cover art for 2 Chainz's "Based on a T.R.U. Story".
