Earlier this week, Lil Wayne revealed the official cover art for his forthcoming album, I Am Not A Human Being II. Now, the Young Money rapper explains the concept behind the cover art that was designed by Kanye West’s creative team, DONDA.
During a recent interview with NOLA.com, Lil Wayne explains the I Am Not A Human Being II artwork.
(Kanye) said, you know, man, let me do your cover. I saw the cover and I approved it. He had an explanation behind it – he said, he chose the moth butterfly thing because it has so many different stages of life, and it goes through so many forms and changes, and no one can figure it out, and it’s always beautiful. At a time it’s ugly and at a time it’s beautiful too. And that’s me.
Also during the Q&A session, the YMCMB rapper spoke on album features:
I have a lot of guests on the album. That’s what’s unusual about the album. I’m usually a two or three feature-type guy. But this album, I have a lot of features because I have a lot of friends, a lot of people that wanted to help out. I just appreciate them all.
As Tune continued, he spoke on Human Being II’s production:
[And] I have a lot of different production on it too. I got Juicy J, David Banner, Soulja Boy – and that’s the production.
Lil Wayne’s I Am Not A Human Being II is slated for a March 26th release.
