Lil Wayne Explains I Am Not A Human Being 2 Cover

In the Big Easy for Super Bowl, Tune spoke with NOLA on his TRUKFIT women’s clothing line, Turk’s release and more. Off camera, he explained his DONDA-created cover art of I Am Not A Human Being 2.

“[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.”

  • cj

  • Yeezus Christ

    cover is stupid as shit, fuck tunechi

    I like the cover because most Black Artists don’t take risks. One of the best things about Kanye is the art of his covers, and now Wayne’s doing it too. I didn’t want 2 see another baby picture.

  • Yeezus Christ

    i hate faggots that praise kanye for his covers, mostly all of these fucking designs are retarded

  • JE5US+PIECE

    He stole games Butterfly !..ha i had to

  • Kid

    So kanye basically subliminally called lil Wayne beautiful?

    *Riley voice*

    Y’all niggas is gay

  • still best rite now!!

    The Carter series is an established brand. Same as the “Dedication” & “Droughts”. INAHB is a glorified bad mixtape. I have extremely low expectations for this. The art is a nice touch tho

    Hope its dope

    Man, how come Kanye gets so much hype for any shitty cover he makes/approves.. I mean, I like dude’s music a lot, and he’s had a few good covers but those were not his work on earlier albums, and ever since he got that red letters on black background thing going with good friday, he is stuck with it.

    This particular cover for Wayne’s album is ugly, uninspired and just a repetition of Kanye’s last 200 covers.. he could’ve done better, made something new and interesting(him or his team of designers, whoever actually does these covers).

    who cares? we all know the music will suck..

    I really hate how the hip-hop industry and black community at large herald ‘Ye as a genius.
    Not to say the man hasn’t got great ideas but this is clearly ripped off Silence of the Lambs.
    Basically recoloured it and sold it off with a bullshit explanation.
    Please let’s expand our horizons so mediocre stops being great.
    That’s why hip-hop’s in a state right now cause y’all accept okay shit.

    thing is, it’s not even a bullshit explanation that HE CAME UP WITH. it’s the SAME REASON that the dude in Silence of the Lambs is infatuated with that particular moth. i mean, just Google it…

    the moth is the same one from silence of the lambs.

    the moth was a symbol of being reborn, it started as a caterpillar and then became a moth or butterfly

    he was a man who wanted to be a women
    he thought that the skin of a women, would transform him into a women
    as if he were a caterpillar being reborn into a moth

  • Regular Guy

  • ultrakid

    for a Wayne album this cover is actually pretty epic, my only concern is: how’s this music gonna match up!?, post-2010 lil Wayne has NOT been epic at all. we shall see though
