’13 Most Underrated Albums #2: Lil Wayne I Am Not A Human Being 2

Written By: @BdotTM January 6, 2014 @ 5:00 PM EDT Top 5 Underrated
0/0

Greetings Earthlings.

Since entering the game at 9, Lil Wayne has become one of hip-hop’s most prolific artists. And last March, he extended his catalogue with his overlooked tenth solo album, I Am Not A Human Being 2.

Three years ago, the album’s predecessor scored the bronze medal on our Most Disappointing list. But it seems like Wayne has learned from his mistakes. And on this go-round, he trims the fat and delivers slices of his mixtape Weezy persona.

He preserves Dedication 4 gem “No Worries” and compounds it with standouts like, “Rich As Fuck,” “IANAHB,” and “Trippy.” On the latter, he spews, “She gets dick, weed, and ignored/ That’s a D.W.I. nigga.” Funny guy. He reaches his apex though, on the Drake and Future-assisted, “Love Me”—a crude number highlighting Weezy’s favorite things: Kush marijuana, alcohol, and pussy, pussy, pussy.

 I Am Not A Human Being 2 isn’t without missteps (“Wowers”), but when it comes to skill set, Cash Money’s resident Martian is still out of this world.—B.Dot

    This album was awful.

    • YouGonEatYourCornbread

      i agree that shit was dry ashy asscheeks the opening bars to this album was “im in the crib butt naked bitch she said my dick could be the next black president” ermmmm ok – _ -

  • Mo

    Nah didn’t like this album. Ever since that Rebirth album Wayne releases have been going down in quality IMO. Some enjoyable songs on here but nah

    • Pablo

      The album wasnt he’s greatest work but every song lyrically was good.. The metaphors and punch lines was on point .. And numbers don’t lie. RAF & love me sold big.. People are gonna hate wayne but he still one of the GOAT and the album is underrated .. The people who hatin on it .. They ain’t listened to it.. If they have not fully

  • Chronic

    And of course it’s b.dot who puts up the first album that doesn’t belong on this list

  • Musikal

    Yeah this album was ass

  • Chronic

    And you already put up the #4 album…this should be #2…

  • Dashing28

    What the fuck are you talking about? This album is terrible. Even hardcore Wayne fans know it and defend it by saying “Well it’s not a Carter album. That’s why.” How is this underrated? Because everyone said it was terrible and on 3rd and 4th listen it’s slightly less bad than you thought?

    I was sure this was going to be a lock on #1 for most disappointing albums.

    This has not made 1 single list for top albums of the year. Not even top 50 albums of the year. The best that can be said about it is that people don’t remember it. That’s Lil Wayne’s BEST case scenario, that people do not remember this album and we pretend it didn’t happen…like MJ on the Wizards.

  • Brian

    Album was wack but RR only do mainstream so they probably couldn’t think of anything else

  • Donn

    Yea Wayne lost me as a fan for a couple albums but I’m not gon lie this album he was going HAM. I think ppl who don’t like Wayne will never like him, no matter what he does so they are biased when listening to a Wayne album. But if you just listen on unbias shit u can give him his props with this album.

    • Dashing28

      Respectfully disagree. All 3 Carter albums are good as are a lot of his mixtapes and even Like Father Like son was solid. This album had some decent singles but the rest was pretty wack. And Wayne got outshined on every single track.

      • OKKK

        wayne’s been getting outshined on features since Forever dropped.

  • Myke Wayne

    My Homies Still is my shit.

  • deadross

    come on now this album had bangers! the IANAHB are experimental albums AND da carter series are vintage well rounded artist wayne songs if you havent figured that out yet, well then move on. all i know is “rich as fuck” was a party banger, “no worries” was a party banger, love me was a party banger, that gunwalk is a wanger too. lets not act like this album wasn’t no where to be found

    • OKKK

      3 of those so called “bangers” were also singles. Take those away, (since they are usually the selling points.) and this album is not only feature heavy, but forgettable.

      Cudi’s album is more underrated than this, WOLF, Doris, Prisoner of Conscious, Long Live ASAP, Street Immortal all better and far more overrated than an album by lil wayne.

      look at his place in the game, just because a trash album had some dope tracks, key word is some, doesnt mean it gets a pass.

      Word to Yeezus.

      • deadross

        curtains, trigger finger, trippy R also sick. it isnt his best album, it was on point to me tho… this list is for people who had a big commercial buzz…plus wolf,doris,prisoner of conscious DONT have selling points at all, it stays one temple so that falls flat to me
        a ideal commercial rap classic to me now a days is something like blueprint, chronic 2001, urban legend. those albums have lyrical songS, club songS, street anthemS,serious songS, chick song etc the only album thats you listed off that has that is long live asap. my point is IANAHB is closer to having those attributes then the ones you listed off.

  • Louiev

    Wayne is garbage. Underrated? Lmao.

  • Jay

    Album had some bangers. curtains and back to you was one of waynes best

  • Word

    Underrated? This terruble album? http://i.imgur.com/6uKMG19.gif

    • YouGonEatYourCornbread

      lol stone cold my nigga

  • LP1087

    Miss me……when i’m gone. Pretty much all his albums are subpar…….and if you think Carter III is a classic then you reeeeaallleeee don’t kno what legendary content is. Got like 8 of the same songs on it. The ongoing rants will continue, shortly, you wait

  • Hannibal Lecture

    This is good album it was better than the last 2 carters. Lyrically Wayne showed up.

  • Ralph

    I forgot Wayne dropped an album last year

    • nastynas

      EXACTLY.

      I still hear the singles that came off this, (only on satellite radio tho) but this album was F O R G E T T A B L Y sad.

  • The Truth

    B. Dot, B.Dot, B.Dot…..Do you even listen to music? I actually agree with SOME valid points and arguments but this is complete shit and coming from a wayne fan I know and we all know it. This album is clearly top 3 DISAPPOINTING of the year. Get your shit together. Yeah a few okay punchlines and metaphors but never once had a topic he could stay on, let alone even make sense with the shit he rapped about. ASS ALBUM

  • IG: claytondadon

    that one was crazy…. a masterpiece

    • YouGonEatYourCornbread

      lmao

  • Epul

    Wait the first one wasn’t good… How is it disappointing?

  • Rumando

    There is nothing underrated about Wayne’s music. Ppl are waking up to the pop beats and wack rhymes about sex, money and drugs. Wayne is not even top 100 rappers of all time and he hasn’t dropped a good album/mixtape in years. Glad to see fans are rejecting him now

    • guest

      Wayne is definitely in the top 100 rappers of all time, your trippin hard, he’s no Nas, Jay, EM, 2pac, Biggie,. etc., but he’s earned atleast a spot there. Now that shit he’s been coming out with for the last 4 years have been pure dog-shit

  • Arthur Fonzarelli

    This was the worst album in music last year! It was a complete disgrace to music.

  • john blaze

    somebody need to check bdot resume again………seriously my nigga………………

  • john blaze

    yall just lost crazy credibility like wtf…………………..

  • John Jay

  • http://www.PhillztheMC.com/ Phillz the MC – #TIMELESS

    This album SPARKED a WORLDWIDE #1 Trending Topic on Twitter of niggas & bitches making FUN of Wayne’s rhymes #RapLikeLilWayne & it’s underrated? LOL STOP IT. At least we know he’s writing his own shit now though.

  • deadross

    Ok speaking as a true fan of wayne. This album was ok. But to say wayne is was garbage period? Nah 2005-2008 was pure flames and wayne was king of rap shit. Put it this way if I can’t feel my face duo was wack to you then I already know your one of those hopsin tech 9 weirdo rap fans so u will never understand the street talk wayne be throwin at y’all.

  • kanye west

    the only thing unrated about this album is that incredible art direction by donda. b dot the blogger you don’t know music STFU.

  • Fiyah

    Stop. This album was trash.

  • JADatsyuk

    Any list with Lil Wayne on it post-2008 doesn’t get respect from me. Not that Wayne was really tolerable in the first place.

  • mac

    Underrated. This album is no where near good enough to be coined “underrated”. This album was put together by a shit for brain artist called Lil’ wayne. In term of art and music this dude fell off a long time ago in the music radar. He thanked the fact he has good label backing his nonsenses.

  • nirusxhonda

    yup the album was not like its former he look like he put couple throwaway tracks on the album part 1 had some real good joints…http://superkicks88.yourlikes.com/

  • p0is0nedkoola on Twitter

    When this album came out , I said it will easily be the ALBUM OF THE YEAR & I stand by it.
    Why?
    Because this album is everything that hip hop is during this current era of hip hop. While the “new generation” has a lot of great MC’s (KL, Cole etc), I’m speaking on the sound that was biggest in the clubs/streets.
    Easily everything that a “Real hip hop head” hates about the current big hits from Hip Hop is on INHB 2.
    Every cliche beat, lyric, metaphor, EVERYTHING.

    This album is the true time capsule of what was on the radio & I’m sorry that we have to all explain this to our kids somehow.

  • ilexx

    This is insane… This album was by far worse than IANAHB 1.

    This is easily Lil Wayne’s worst album.

    There is nothing underrated about a shit album like this…..

  • 2012Industry1

    I was for sure thinking this was going to get Worst Album of 2013….y’all whole list lost me! Elliot I expect this fuckery from you….but B. Dot, you should have known better!! Wow…

  • inthestudyo

    This album was definitely underrated. Wayne has fallen so far from Mixtape WEEZY that our expectations of him are historic. This album was bad but better than the D4 and his more recent verses. On a Wayne scale this is not his best but overall compared to the environment, this album is underrated
