Proving that even at his worst, he is among the best, impish rapper Lil Wayne appeared on L.A.'s Power 106 to discuss his new album, I Am Not a Human Being II, and not dying. Wayne added his voice to the chorus disappointed by his new set of songs — Human Being II has received mixed reviews and is one of the most tepidly received releases in the critical darling's oeuvre.
When asked about the album by DJ Felli Fel, Wayne said:
Uh, it sucks. I hate it. But it's a new album, it's for the people. It's I Am Not a Human Being II.
He then clarified:
Nah, I'm joking, man. I'm proud of everything I do, man. Everything I do and everybody I do. But, um, it's an awesome album, man. I took my time on it, and, you know me, just the thoughts on the left side of my brain, I just put 'em together and made an album of it. And then, you know, later comes the rest.
Mmmm, the first review was better.
Before this week's release of Human Being II, a fresh-out-the-hospital Wayne sent a video to TMZ, in which he said, "My bum-ass album coming out March 26... it's 26? You're gonna get that shit or you won't. If not, it's whatever."
This is the Crazy People approach to music marketing. It's kind of refreshing, really, and anything is worth a shot in this economic climate.
Wayne also said on air that he's epileptic and "the reason for the [recent] seizures was just plain stress, no rest, and overworking myself." Wayne failed to add, though, that the reason for Human Being II's wackness is all those drugs.
