Lil Wayne’s ‘I Am Not A Human Being’ Projected to Sell 90K Units

Even though he’s locked up and fans were not able to purchase his new CD in stores, Lil Wayne was still able to top the iTunes albums charts with his latest release, I Am Not  A Human Being. And now his label is projecting that Weezy’s digital-only release will sell around 90,000 copies in its first week, according to Billboard.

Cash Money/Universal also expects the New Orleans-bred superstar to sell around another 225,000 copies when the physical disc hits retail shops on October 12, with two new bonus tracks.

I Am Not A Human Being features appearances from Wayne’s Young Money family like Drake (who appears on four tracks), Nicki Minaj, Jay Sean, Lil Twist and T-Streets. Production duties were handled Cool & Dre, Boi-1da, 40 and Streetrunner, among others.

Wayne—currently behind bars for a gun charge in New York’s Rikers Island—will be released on November 4, after entering jail last March. He was arrested in 2007 when a police officer boarded his tour bus, after smelling marijuana. Once inside the vehicle she caught the rapper with a .40 caliber handgun. —Elan Mancini

    good numbers considering the lock up…that’s wayne for ya…

    I don’t know if this is a good look. Short-Term? Yep. Weezy is making paper.

    Long-Term? I’m not sure. Isn’t Weezy planning on dropping The Carter 3 when he exits? It could be on some over saturation type stuff. Weezy is walking a tight rope with this one. Not to mention he’s pissed regular retailers off by releasing this digitally first…… I guarantee The Carter 3 won’t do close to the one million it’s predecessor did. Anyone want to bet?

    The carter 4 will be like “All eyes on me”. He has been writing that album in jail. This is the first time that he has written on paper for an album in like 10 years. He even said that his lyrics have been undescribable. Being the Wayne that he is. The carter 4 will be like something we have never seen before. One thing I do agree with you on is that he needs to slow it down with all the music. He features everything. Pretty sure it was because he was addicted to Syrup and so F’d up that everytime he had an offer he just took it. Thinking with the $$ and not the heart.

    I’m really only excited for the song he’s gonna have featuring Tech N9ne (or Tech N9ne featuring him). Other than that, unles he sounds like old school wayne, I’m not interested. That new shit of his is horrible. Nigga fell off, hopefully this jail time has done him some good and he’ll come back like Carter I and II

  • Q461

    I bet Carter 4 moves units. Especially if he puts Drake and Minaj on there, they got a big buzz goin now. I’m just curious on how many more albums this nigga gonna call Carter lol This ain’t Rocky nigga.

    Let me ask this 1 question. what are anybody thats making comments doing ? my point exactly
    Rather any of yall think he good or bad what are you doing in yo own life besides talking about whos good and whos bad? can you afford rent every month? is all ya bills paid? is all ya kids well kept? I mean fa real im not even making exceptions for myself i had to ask myself this same question and i came up with this … I can be apart of the soulution or i can be apart of the problem. for instance 9 times out of ten anybody running around saying weezy anit shit well they anit shit. the same for them running around saying awe wayne gay well emm yea 9 times outta 10 them punks themselves. I mean who does that ? were they do that at? just sit around full of hate making they self look like the typical black. BE MORE !

    • TheRoach513

    ….if wayne is bold enough 2 make the “cater 4″ a double- disc album, then it will exceed the sells of its predecessors. if not not then im sure that it will be a bit of a let down… all of these 11 & 12 track albums, man…..these rappers are getting some bad advice
