Review of Lil Wayne’s “I Am Not a Human Being” (Boston Herald)

While Weezy serves an eight-month stint at Rikers Island for gun charges, fans can gobble up his eighth studio album, available now digitally and in stores Tuesday. Recorded before his incarceration, it amounts to a virtual Young Money send-off party. Drake, Nicki Minaj and various label underlings help their leader boast, brag and declare triumph over the universe, with a couple of semi-lewd serenades thrown in for good measure. An especially loquacious, almost manic Weezy rattles off metaphors and threats in scattered, stream-of-consciousness style, using this preprison manifesto to deliver double doses of everything we’ve come to expect: brilliance, egomania, utter depravity. Download: “Bill Gates.” (Published in the Boston Herald on Oct. 11, 2010)
