Background[edit]

In January 2012, Birdman confirmed that the production work is underway for the sequel to Lil Wayne's eighth album, I Am Not a Human Being (2010), titled I Am Not a Human Being II. Wayne later announced to MTV that he completed the album, while putting even greater attention to the quality control than its predecessor, as he said that he had to "rushed" it to the finish from the original project before serving his time in jail after his sentence for the illegal possession of a weapon.[3] I Am Not a Human Being II contains some of the unused materials from the earlier recording sessions that took place for Tha Carter III and IV.[4][5] It was first originally planned for the fall 2012 release, but it was delayed until stating the release for February 19, 2013, I Am Not a Human Being II was eventually announced to be released on March 26.[6] In January 2013, the album was included as one of the multiples on "Most Anticipated Albums of 2013" lists, such as the one by MTV and was on the twelfth place on the XXL's list.[7]

Music and lyrics[edit]

Much in the vein of Lil Wayne's earlier works, I Am Not a Human Being II addresses themes of drugs and sex. The album incorporates much of his traditional hip hop styles, also experiments with rock-influenced elements.[8][9] Described as extremely vulgar by Lauren Nostro of Complex,[10] the album contains 182 uses of the word "nigga", 102 uses of "bitch", 63 references to having sex, 39 mentions of marijuana and 38 references to shooting people among other numerous references to pills, codeine, getting fellatio, giving cunnilingus, and skateboarding.[11][12][13][14][15] The themes of sex, violence, and drugs are all allegories in the album according to Carter and the producers which claim that it is a story about American struggles of singlehood, poverty, violence, disease, and physical pain.[15]

Artwork[edit]

In November 2012, Lil Wayne announced that Kanye West would be designing everything from the cover art to the album packaging. According to Wayne, West approached him about doing it because he "wanted to package a Wayne album".[16] On January 30, 2013, the DONDA-designed cover was released, featuring a red moth spread across a black background.[17] On February 1, 2013, Wayne explained the cover saying, "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".[18] On the day of the album's release DONDA, released an animated version of the album cover.[19] Overall, the artwork was designed and directed by Kanye West and Joe Perez of DONDA. In December 2013, Complex positioned it at number 27 on their list of the best album covers of 2013.[20]

I Am Not a Human Being II received generally mixed reviews from music critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 51, based on 23 reviews.[51] Jody Rosen, writing in Rolling Stone, felt that Wayne is "half-interested" and lacks the "exhilarating surprise" of his previous work.[60] Mikael Wood of the Los Angeles Times wrote that the album shows Wayne "streamlining his eccentricities",[56] while Pitchfork Media's Jayson Greene panned his lyrics as an "undifferentiated slurry of interchangeable" dick jokes, drug references, and unconvincing puns, "none of them funny or creative".[59] Alex Macpherson of The Guardian found his metaphors "laboured, tired or just remarkably offputting."[55] Evan Rytlewski of The A.V. Club accused Wayne of having "bad taste" and rapping solely about oral sex, "a subject that tends to invite misplaced aggression and puerile humor".[53]

Jon Caramanica of The New York Times called the album "less manic, less experimental, less unpredictable and, oddly, less consistent" than "drug-era Lil Wayne".[62] Al Horner of NME said that "the chilling growl and imaginative Auto-Tune of hits like 'Got Money' replaced by tired punchlines and lazy hooks."[58] Spin's Brandon Soderberg felt that the album was a continuation of "Wayne's steady creative decline", adding that "you're better off soaking in the good choices here and resigning yourself to enduring the bad ones."[61] Dean Van Nguyen of PopMatters found the beats "dispensable" and said that they "mirror his own boredom with the project."[63] Ken Capobianco of The Boston Globe said that, apart from the "potent" "Gunwalk" and "No Worries", the album is "both numbingly haphazard and inconsequential."[64]

In a positive review, David Jeffries of AllMusic said that the album is an "indulgent jumble of a sideline release, but that doesn't mean Wayne isn't in fine form", and observed "stunning talent, true wit, and a John Holmes level of cocksure" from him.[52] USA Today's Steve Jones found it "solid" and "often entertaining in the crass, lewd and rude way that's uniquely Wayne."[65] MSN Music's Robert Christgau called it "progress" than most of the songs "deploy the P-word" sexually rather than pejoratively and felt that it suggests that, "unlike most rappers and related pop lifeforms who brag about sex, Weezy really seems to savor it ... A loose-lipped ship-sinker is what he was meant to be."[57]
