Lil Wayne Explains ‘I Am Not a Human Being II’ Cover Art

I Am Not a Human Being II

Lil Wayne had fans scratching their heads over the Kanye West-designed cover for his upcoming album I Am Not a Human Being II. Now Weezy is opening up and sharing the inspiration behind the red-and-black artwork.

According to Wayne, it was all Kanye’s idea. The G.O.O.D. Music mogul’s creative content company DONDA crafted the concept.

“[Kanye] said, you know, man, let me do your cover,” the Young Money boss told The Times-Picayune while promoting his clothing line Trukfit at Macy’s in New Orleans. “I saw the cover and I approved it.”

He explained the significance of the moth-like creature. “[Kanye] 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.”

Due March 26, I Am Not a Human Being II will be filled with guests. “That’s what’s unusual about the album. I’m usually a two or three feature-type guy,” said Weezy. “But this album, I have a lot of features because I have a lot of friends, a lot of people that wanted to help out. And I have a lot of different production on it too. I got Juicy J, David Banner, Soulja Boy—and that’s the production.”

These days, you’re more likely to find him on a skateboard than listening to his iPod. “Honestly I don’t listen to music. I watch skate videos all day,” admitted Tunechi, whose playlist includes Keith Sweat, Anita Baker, Too $hort, and metal band Anthrax.

    Ok Wayne, I understand the cover art now, but um you are far from a 2-3 feature type rapper, the Carter 3, 4, and I Am Not A Human Being was flooded with features. So ummm

    @Jonathan, most features of those albums were singers doing the hooks which isn’t unusual since wayne can’t sing. Only rapper he had on carter 3 was jay z on mr carter, brisco and busta on la la, and juelz and fabulous on u aint got nothing. Unlike most rap artist now that have at least 2 feat rappers on damn near every track. Most tracks on carter 4 were solo tracks. Only the interlude and outro had feature rappers and wayne wasn’t even on those tracks. Only 6″7 which he was giving shine to Cory, John which was basically a remix of Rick Ross song so he had to be on there, and it’s good really had him with a feat rapper so wayne right

    Even though Wayne been skating & is like as if he isnt the old Wayne, i still think this album is going to be better than the Carter 4 & Dedication 4 or any work he has done lately. Looking forward to “I Am Not a Human Being II”

    Its strange how Lil Wayne is releasing his Album March 26, 2013 marking the 13th week of the year and ironically it would be a demonic looking butterfly painted red right in the center of the album cover, not quite sure if it’s a monarch or not but either, you do the math. Wake up people, what we need to do now is LOVE one another, it’s the only way!!
