Lil Wayne's "I Am Not A Human Being II" Projected To Debut At #2

Lil Wayne's "I Am Not A Human Being II" expected to sell approximately 210,000 copies in its first week.

With the release of a new batch of album sales numbers, it appears that Young Money rapper Lil Wayne’s new album I Am Not A Human Being II will be unable to top the success of past albums from Weezy.

Radio.com reports that first week sales for I Am Not A Human Being II will likely top a little over 200,000 and while that number far surpasses first week sales for 2010’s I Am Not A Human Being (125,000 copies sold), it doesn’t come close to the 964,000 albums sold thanks to Tha Carter IV.

If sales predictions are in fact correct, Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience will again find itself clenching the number one spot on album charts.

The 20/20 Experience far exceeded sales expectations when it was revealed that the Timbaland-produced album sold nearly one-million copies in its first week.

The release of I Am Not A Human Being II comes shortly after Lil Wayne was released from Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after suffering from numerous seizures.

      All of you are hilariously stupid. As much as I love hip-hop, the fans are the worst for example anon4 thinks he is better than everyone else because he listens to 'concious music' forgetting that in the late 60's rappers delight was popular and that's more of a party song. Hip-hop didn't start getting political till the late 80's. Both of you STFU and let people listen to, to who they want to seriously you lot are pathetic, stop acting like you are better than one another because of your music taste smh.

      "Cool story. Tell us again why your life is miserable." ^^^^^^ Well Mr. "Smart"ass, how about you shut your fucking ass up if you are not going to contribute to the thread? You might as while masturbate in your dirty cave rather than use a overused remark toward someone else like the unintelligent mongoloid you are. So a guy's life is miserable just because you disagree with him and he puts logic, insight, and thought into the shit he says? Hmm...you are lacking in the common sense and maturity development, you mentally shut-in primate. "All of you niggas need to come out of the closet with the gay shit you say." ^^^^ And so do most of your favorite rappers. There's a difference between using more creative insights and actually being gay you child. Most mundane attacks like "get a life", "hater", [insert tired profane phrase here], and miscellaneous are laughable and don't require much thought due to sentimental, menopausal impulse that many of these women who responded have. As you can see, most of these disgruntled female children who replied here did not give us their own point of views. They just bashed and insulted the intelligent and perceptive users above because they [the female children] lack the mental capacity to disagree in a respectful manner and share their smarts (which they seemingly don't have).

      "Hey, idiot. Stop calling people stans when you sound like a stan. FYI, people like you, Quote-Man, and other idiots are hating." I'll stop addressing you people as "stans" when you all stop calling me "hater" and pull your favorite artists' dick out of your asses and come into actual realizations you fantasizing, filthy, flamboyant, faggot-ass 16-year-old fairy. Comments like yours tell me how butthurt and sickened many of you are by the truth, and also shows your guilt. Do you know how irksome it is to see and hear people like yourself rabidly give an artist too much credit and praise excessively? And then you bash others who simply disagree? You are also the same hypocrites who say Eminem and Kendrick's sales count, but Lil Wayne's and Drake's doesn't. I don't like Lil Wayne and could care less about Drake, but this just is a fine example. Kendrick & Em are a lot better than Drake and Wayne, but if one's album sales doesn't count, then all album sales don't count (which they in reality don't and merely determine one's popularity). There is a difference between supporting and liking the artist, and constantly overhyping the artist and treating them like gods when they are human just like you and I. Then when an artist disappoints you when he/she doesn't meet your impossible standards, you all get mad (ex: J. Cole). A lot of you hip hop listeners and fans are funny and inconsistent. Most of them don't care about you fuckboys anyway. Even Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, and several others condemn you dickriders and groupie, fickle, romp-switching sluts in some of their songs. I'm not being a "hater" you busted testicle, and if you can't get that through your head then you need to consult a doctor as you and others seem to have an undiagnosed developmental disability. I like Nas and Lauryn Hill, but you don't see me with Italian sausage and clam all in my mouth. And make sure you use Listerine when you are done those frothy fellatio lessons, you nasty fucktard. Also, get your crusty, fissured anus cleaned out as well you homolover.

      So anyone who doesn't dickride Kendrick Lamar and other decent artists has to like 2Chainz, Future, MMG, YMCMB, Wiz Khalifa and the rest of the minstrel show performers instead? Get the fuck out of here with your half-assed, imbecilic, so-called "logic" you disgusting orangutan fucking ape. I don't even like those untalented "artists" and prefer to listen to old school hip hop and other decent eargasmic forms of music. I'm so sick of this type of unthinkable logic getting spewed everywhere, as well as being labelled a "hater" when I don't like, or so overly exaggerated appreciation for, something as much as other people do. This is the type of behavior that is feeding into the downfall of hip hop in the first damn place. Quit being an elementary dyke, I mean tyke, and hop off your bloody stools of fuckery.

    • hmmm

      @Anon4 - That's because the shape of the current hip hop game is so horrendous that anyone like Kendrick Lamar, who is at least slightly above average, will be repeatedly dickridden to death. If this was the year between 1986 and 1996, then Kendrick Lamar would most likely be outshone because TALENT was rampant back then. Nowadays, talent and true art are very scarce unless you look underground (and even that's suffering). Furthermore, Kendrick will easily be able to stand out from the current pack of posers and untalented rappers.

    since when did selling 200k become a fail? Wayne probably spent like 100k to 200k on all features and producers on the album .the album wasn't bad because it got a couple good songs on it but still i feel like Wayne didn't even care the album that much.He just had to put out something for his fans. lol Wayne even called it his bomb ass album and said if you want you should buy it ,if not whatever ..Wayne don't care if he sells or not because he didn't put much work into it but it might as well sell, you never know.i'm saying this but I also bought the album the day it dropped at target for $17 ..i got the deluxe copy .... and to all Wayne haters saying he is garbage, fyi he is one of the greatest.. if your fave rapper never made a line like "real g's move in silence like lasagna" then they not close to Wayne ..and don't even think Kendrick is half close to Wayne ..Let's wait and see if he can get to like his 5th album without declining before we can call him a great rapper ..btw his "tu=tu" and "uhm-uhm" rhymes get boring

That's not enough for a Milli first week.

      I Am Not A Human Being albums are perceived as leftover albums to Wayne Fans. They consider the Tha Carter sereis to be Wayne's true albums. His earlier albums came out when his fanbase was small and Rebirth was a pile of crap that even critics agreed it sucked, leading to bad word of mouth.

    You YMCMB haters are fucking idiots. Because I'm an accountant for Cash Money Records, I spend a lot of time with Birdman. He told me that in 96, Biggie was looking to get out of his contract with Bad Boy so he could sign with Cash Money. If Cash Money is right for Biggie, then it's clearly the top record label. Unfortunately, Jay-Z and Diddy found out about Biggie's upcoming departure and had him shot. Also, Birdman as always a role model for Pac. Most of you don't know this, but the song Hit Em Up was originally supposed to be Split Em Up, a song where Pac brags about fucking Faith, leading to her breakup with BIG. But Birdman explained to Pac that real gangsta's talking about killing people, so that's how Hit Em Up took on such a violent tone. YMCMB for life. We got the game by the clit.

    If ban women from buying shit, his album will lose 80% of sales. Women consistently fuck up all forms of music, not just hip hop. Look at the people who get shine now? Drake? Lil Wayne? Justin Bieber? I mean, you could virtually name any really big artist who's doing big numbers and they have a significant female fanbase. Because women are idiots and only just by what they find attractive, not actual talent. Even soulja boy is still around because of his female fanbase.You'll never see a dude buy a chicks album just because he finds her attractive, but women do this type of shit all the time. Ban woman from music, and you've fixed a good chunk of the issue.

    "no kendricks sales droped 0.005 % and he won the rap game" You're very melodramatic. He won what exactly? Respect? His sales aren't breaking records, so while I give him credit for his success, he's not showing the world he's around to stay. Not just yet...

    The title is sadly accurate. Lil Wayne is a full-blown cottage industry now, a one-man corporation that provides succor and service to careers ranging from Nicki Minaj and Drakes to Gudda Gudda and Lil Chuckees. With this many shareholders come obligations, so despite the increasingly obvious and pressing personal needs of Dwayne Carter the man, Lil Wayne Inc. steamrolls forward, impervious to setbacks. When Carter landed in the ICU for six frightening days this month, after seizures that many assumed were related to his ongoing, years-documented problems with codeine addiction, his handlers smoothed things over with the panicked dissembling of hangers-on propping up an ailing dictator. After his release, Wayne gave a thumbs up to TMZ cameras to allay fears, announcing he was better than good. He did look good, but he also, tellingly, shrugged and offered this: My bum-ass album is coming out... March 26? It's 26?...Youre gonna get that shit or you wont. If not, its whatever. This spirit of indifference hangs heavy on I Am Not A Human Being II. In his review of 2011s Tha Carter IV, Ryan Dombal observed that "after an epic run, it seems as though Wayne has finally run out of inventive ways to say he's on drugs, or great at sex, or extremely interested in making money, and two years later, the prognosis has only grown more grim: No song on IIis meaningfully distinguishable from the next. Everything pumps out in an undifferentiated slurry of interchangeable dick jokes, drug references, and lame puns. Tha Carter IV moved nearly a million copies in a single week, and this staggering success may have sealed Waynes artistic fate. All of the quirks and peculiarities that once made Wayne great have hardened, six or seven years later, into nearly unbearable tics. All of his lyrics have devolved into barely rearranged little puzzles of themselves, with countless versions of his "She ride/ Take this dick like ___ formulation, none of them funny or creative: On IANAHB, a woman takes it like advice, while others ride it like both "go-karts" and "the Kentucky Derby" on "Curtains. His tweaking of gangsta-raps language has never been more perfunctory. He sounds terminally bored, and even the better rap songs on here-- the hits, like the Mike Will Made It-produced, Future-and-Drake-featuring Bitches Love Me or the rubbery, Bay Area-influenced clap of Rich As Fuck-- work around him, not with him. The only moments where Wayne sounds marginally interested in his own music come when he veers furthest away from rap. On Romance, he sings in his croaky, limber way about his profane version of love while Cool & Dres synthesizers smear like bionic fireflies: She kissed my ankle when I twist my ankle/ She even did anal when she don't do anal. On the big, clomping pop rock of "Back To You, his voice is a shpritz of Lil Wayne on the surface of a towering club-pop production, the kind that mashes together the respective sugar highs of Euro club-pop, hair-metal, and synth pop into a glutinous ball (If youre wondering whose sampled voice that is crooning at the bottom of all that mess, by the way, its Jamie Lidells.) This might not be the most promising future to ponder for Waynes music, but theyre the moments he sounds happiest: as a cog in a much bigger machine than himself, set free from being the all-consuming center for the first time.

    Wayne's sells dropped 77% last time, KDot's sales dropped 74% on GKMC. The only people buying their CDs are the fans. Not Birdman or Dr. Dre. Sales always drop a lot after the first week. That goes for anybody. The real fans buy it in the first week of release. Duh

    This could very well be the beginning of the end of Wayne. His lame hashtag raps were a fad, nothing more. He's been trash since Carter 3 and he's gotten worse since then, and thats not even mentioning his homosexual fashion statements like skinny jeans and truckfit crap, plus looking like a fool on a skateboard. Embarassing how the role model of you kids is a cough syrup drinking homosexual. Seriously, look at yourselves in the mirror and be embarrased. Your parents should be embarassed of you. Hopefully this Young Money crap ends this year.

      get off wayne's dick.. only thing i'll partly agree on is that gkmc is not a classic, at least not yet, but it's definitely got potential.. i bought that during its first week and i'm still playing it five months later.. gkmc was crafted and sequenced very well and everything ties together, while wayne's albums are just a bunch of different songs thrown together talking about money, beating the pussy up, or being a blood over and over, just remixed each time.. and i know plenty of people who know kendrick's music.. it is close to platinum after all..

      It's not that he hasn't accomplished anything, because he's had major success. It's that he's fake as fuck. His whole career he's been emulating some sort of gangster, down to the tear drop tattoos. This cat has had a record deal for 2/3 of his life. Unless he was a gangster between the ages 1-12, he's full of shit. If he's not a gangster then he's a skateboarder who can't skateboard or he thinks he's Tupac.

    At the end of the day this is an EPIC FAIL for Wayne and Cash Money. None of us expected it to do well anyway. The only people who thought Wayne was gonna do numbers are the people who are still in denial that Wayne has fallen the fuck off. Sorry 4 The Wait was garbage, then Carter IV was crap but people got caught up in the hype and it sold well. Then Dedication 4 was the worst Dedication in history and people realized "oh wait.. maybe Wayne really sucks now" and then you had every single feature Wayne was on since then and they have all sucked. Now we have I am Not a Human Being II and the intro is the only thing on there that gives you a glimpse of what the old Wayne was, the entire album is straight ass with not one quotable line on there. Somebody may call this hating but honestly I used to route for Wayne to win, now his career is just a shit stain on Hip Hop Culture. It's actually quite sad but the music is just atrocious

    • ilexx

      None of us have a personal stake in ANY of these artists album's success but we are fans of Hip Hop and we are apart of the culture itself. To say "210,000 for an album that wasn't hyped is pretty good." it really just sounds like an excuse homie. And in fact its really not accurate. Just like products that companies put out have a life cycle, artists are no different. Kendrick Lamar comes out, he is brand new, first album, does 200k+ and thats a WIN because he has barely established a fanbase, the same went for J. Cole and other debut albums. When you are an artist who put out the first installation of this series while in JAIL with ZERO real promotion and that album still went platinum, then u come out of jail and release an album that almost went platinum in a week.... 200k is a flop. Between Facebook and Twitter dude has over 50 million followers and domestically he only did 200k? lol thats NOT a win, thats for sure. with an expected 70% drop off rate for the 2nd week he will be looking at 60k in his 2nd week. So will these guys make money off of this, tours and what have you? Yeah Cash Money will still eat but my point before and my point NOW, is still that Lil Wayne has fallen the fuck off and now the sales are there to prove it. When he was winning, it was "women lie, men lie, numbers don't", now that he aint winning, this still holds true and the numbers aren't lying.

    • Anonymous

      You act like we all had a personal stake in the album's success. 210,000 for an album that wasn't hyped is pretty good. Obviously Wayne doesn't put as much into this series as he does The Carter, but how many rappers can release an album and go right to #2? In the big picture it doesn't matter. They'll make their money off this digitally. Tour like fuck, then move on to another project.

      So niggaz defense is that Wayne's album from 2000 & 2005 did 200k 1st week? Dude didnt have 1/10th the fanbase he has now. Just admit that Wayne fell off and you can see these numbers for what they truly are....

    200,000 first week aint even that bad.
