During the filming of Birdman’s “Y.U. Mad”, MTV got some nice nuggets of news from Lil Wayne.
Maine said Weezy is currently hard at work on the follow-up to his rock album Rebirth, and I Am Not A Human Being (which dropped while he was incarcerated).
“He’s, like, 12 songs in, and it’s crazy. He went left. He’s in Martian land right now,” Mack Maine told MTV of Human Being 2.
While both projects weren’t as successful as his Tha Carter series, his label prez said Weezy uses them as an outlet to express different sides to his musical tastes.
“He gets to show his rock side, he gets to show the gangsta side and talk to the women on one side,” explained 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.”
With different directions on each project, Weezy is able to reach a diverse group of fans.
“You have different audiences and different preferences, different demographics of people that like to hear different music,” Mack Maine continued. “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.”
When these forthcoming projects are due is currently unknown.
