Oh How The Mighty Have Fallen (Lil Wayne IANAHB2 review)

By: John Jefferson

“I am the beast, feed me rappers or feed me beats.”

This was a line uttered by a man during the zenith of his career—a man on a mission to prove that he was the best emcee ever to bless a microphone with his words.

That man was Lil Wayne, Weezy F. Baby, Tunechi or whichever of his multiple nicknames you decide to call him by.

From 2004 until 2008 Wayne managed to prove time and time again that his claims of being the best rapper alive were not just the casual brags that most rappers throw out, but that he actually meant it.

He even went as far as to say the he was the living embodiment of music itself (you can check his forehead for proof).

Wayne has found ways to keep himself relevant in the music business since he was a 14-year-old living under the shadow of his comrades Juvenile and BG, who were at the height of their popularity at that time.

Yet millions of album sales and epic verses later, Weezy is dropping off pure crap to his fans and not caring about it.

Present-day Wayne is much more content with skinny jeans, weed, and other substances than putting out quality music in the booth.

This brings us to the current thing that isn’t worthy of being called an album, “I Am Not a Human Being II,” a lazy collection of ‘songs’ that are unfocused and a pain to listen to.

On almost every song, his claims of superiority and aggression are faker than WWE wrestling and Nicki Minaj combined.

Even when he gives you a peek into what he can truly do with a clever line he always follows it up with something cringe-worthy.

The only thing that stands out on this project is the awesome piano on the intro track, “IANAHB,” and that is even ruined by Wayne’s rambling.

Two others tracks that stand out are “Gun Walk” and “Trippy” mainly because of Juicy J production.

Granted, those songs are very mediocre but they are godsends when compared to the rest.

Probably the worst song Wayne has ever recorded has to be the track “Romance.”

Wayne probably came up with the idea that he could say the most dreadful things to a woman if he puts, “That’s Romance” at the end.

I was offended for women and I take pity on the women that have relationships with men that use that song as the anthem for their relationships.

From the horrible production to the childish and disrespectful views of romance, there is nothing good about this jumbled up recorded noise.

The only people I can see liking this song are middle school children who would think it is funny.

By the time you get to the end of this album, if you made it that far, you are thanking every deity imaginable that it is finally over.

Lyrically, Tunechi is all over the place and the only topics he manages to stay on are his love for oral sex, destroying vaginal orifices and marijuana (in case you didn’t know by now).

With lines like “I know strangers personally” and “I’m in the ocean getting shark p**sy,” you can tell that effort lives far away from this project.

Don’t buy this album, listen to it or even pirate it.

“I Am Not A Human Being II” gets a two out of 10 only because the GIF version of the album cover is freaking awesome.
