It’s better to give than to receive, and Lil Wayne is doing just that for his birthday.
In honor of the incarcerated rapper’s 28th birthday, he released the digital version of his new album, “I Am Not A Human Being,” on Monday. The 10-track album is the ninth for the prodigious rapper, who is currently serving a one-year prison sentence in Rikers Island for a weapon’s charge.
The lead single for the new album is “Right Above It,” which features label mate Drake and has already sold more than half a million digital downloads and entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the top 10. Since getting locked up in March, Weezy has been communicating with his fans via a website which documents his life behind bars.
The new album will be physically released in stores on October 12.
