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
