New music from Lil Wayne due out in September
Wednesday 14 July 2010
An EP of all new music by Lil Wayne is due out in September, the rapper's co-manager Cortez Bryant told Vibe.com in an article dated July 9.
I'm Not a Human Being is being called a "prelude" to Lil Wayne's highly anticipated album
Tha Carter IV.
Tha Carter IV will be the follow-up to Lil Wayne's 2008 album Tha Carter III, which won a Grammy for Best Rap Album, debuted at number one on the US Billboard chart, and has sold 3.2 million copies worldwide. The release date of IV was originally set for 2009 but is now postponed until after November 2010, when the rapper completes an eight-month prison sentence. To tide fans over, the rapper has since released Rebirth, a rock album that sold well but received mixed reviews. Still, some are putting the Carter continuation alongside Kanye West's Good Ass Job as one of the most anticipated rap albums on the horizon.
Fans can expect a quiet release for the forthcoming EP, according to Bryant. "We not about to roll out no three month set up," said Bryant. "I'm not even putting it out in stores. We just gonna put it out virally and maybe package it up for Christmas. Give 'em a hard copy later for fan appreciation."
Bryant expects to release I'm Not a Human Being on September 27, which is Lil Wayne's birthday.
