Lil Wayne – I Am Not a Human Being II

Nothing stops this guy.  Not jail. Not seizures which leave him in an ICU unit. Not an addiction to cough syrup. Nothing. Despite all the health and personal issues this guy keeps putting out music.  He’s a machine. I Am Not a Human Being II is his tenth album. For a guy who made some noises recently about retiring from music because it was boring him to concentrate on his new obsession, skateboarding, he sure makes a lot of music. As with most rap/hip hop there are guests aplenty like Nikki Minaj (The lady is everywhere! She is the female version of Lil Wayne), 2 Chainz and Big Sean. One obsession (skateboarding) seems to have been replaced by another (sex) on the album. Almost all the songs are about sex. Sex of all kinds and varieties. If you look beyond his clownish personality and the fact that he seems to have sex on the brain more than a 14-year-old boy, this is exactly the type of album you would expect from a rapper of his calibre. The guy knows how to deliver a rhyme. What does let him down and a few of the songs on this 15 track album is when he strays from his comfort zone. What was he thinking when he came up with the idea of making a rap out of a Folgers coffee jingle? It is the disaster you know it is going to be. It is hard to appreciate what you are hearing when it seems like the rapper himself is a little embarrassed to be doing it.
