We all heard what a mess Lil Wayne’s last album, I am Not A Human Being II, was but little did we know the project was Weezy trying to sound “underground.” Strange, but that’s exactly what he told XXL on their latest cover story. The album was released this past March to mixed reviews. Did any of you guy like it?

Were you happy with how I Am Not A Human Being II came out and the public response to it?
Overall I felt good about the project because I approached it in a manner of—and this may sound silly—trying to be underground.

Have you felt that urge to get back in the studio? Is there a Carter V in the future that you’re thinking about, or are you focused on something else right now?

I think about it, but I have to be focused on something else right now.

The Carter series and the I Am Not A Human Being series are drastically different. Human Being comes off as an underground album or mixtape series that mig
ht not have even been put in stores years ago. Releases from Tha Carter series seem more like moments.
Yeah, that’s the way I approach them.

Who have you been listening to? If you are still listening to music with all that skateboarding…
I do. I listen to a lot of Odd Future. I’ve been listening to a lot of old stuff, though. Recently I’ve been listening to a lot of Bone Thugs. East 1999, that album. Stuff like that. The first album. I listen to a lot of UGK. A lot of 8 Ball & MJG. And that’s kinda it. As far as new, I listen to Future, to a lot of the older mixtape stuff. A$AP Ferg.
