Lil Wayne delivered a blockbuster sequel to Tha Carter III over the summer. The album went platinum in less than two weeks, so it’s only natural that the hip-hop superstar is prepping more sequels.
Mack Maine revealed that Weezy is working on a follow-up to his rock album Rebirth and hip-hop project I Am Not a Human Being. “He’s, like, 12 songs in, and it’s crazy. He went left. He’s in Martian land right now,” the Young Money president told MTV News of Human Being 2.
While both albums did not achieve as much commercial success as Tha Carter series, Weezy uses them as an outlet to express his different tastes. “He gets to show his rock side, he gets to show the gangsta side and talk to the women on one side,” said Mack. “On I Am Not a Human Being, he is definitely showing some weirdo, left-brain, I’m-not-from-here type side. He can say what he wants. There’s no boundaries or limits.”
The diverse music will appeal to his various fan bases. “You have different audiences and different preferences, different demographics of people that like to hear different music,” he added. “He captures all those different audiences and then at a concert or a show, you bring all those different people together. You bring your Rebirth rock people, you bring your Carter people, and you bring your I Am Not a Human Being [crowd], and you have a great show. That’s why we sell out arenas every night.”
