Lil Wayne Is Only Human
by Rhapsody | March 27, 2013
So for a few hours there a couple weeks ago, things looked pretty grim for Lil Wayne: After being hospitalized for seizures, he'd reportedly been read his last rites and everything. That proved false (thanks, TMZ), but it's safe to say that brief pang of terror/grief will lead the world to assess his new album, I Am Not a Human Being II, with different, more sympathetic eyes. It's a complicated, maddening, fascinating record, and here we attempt to make sense of it, joined by playlists galore (tracing his glory years and recent cameos), the latest iteration of our Monsters of Rap chart, a look at other hot rap singles of the moment, and much more. Prepare/enjoy yourselves.
