News Update: Lil Wayne Celebrates His Birthday from Jail by Releasing a New
Lil Wayne turned 28 in his cell at Rikers Island and celebrated his birthday with a digital release of his latest album, "I Am Not a Human Being." A physical copy of the CD with 13 tracks will be available October 12. The digital version has 10 tracks.
MTV's Kyle Anderson said of the rapper's latest album, "With an impeccable selection of beats, a great roster of guest stars (including several drop-ins by Drake) and Wayne's greatest lyrical focus in a while (the pressure of checking into Rikers clearly got his adrenaline flowing), I Am Not a Human Being is destined to be in the pantheon of Weezy's greatest work and is among the finest hip-hop releases of the year."
Lil Wayne will be released from jail in about a month.
Lil Wayne's father Birdman told MTV News, "It ain't kicked in. My family, I like to do things for him for his birthday, you hear me? This the first time we not gonna get a chance to do that. But he is putting a new album out called I Am Not a Human Being. We pop bottles for him while he's gone.
