Lil Wayne's I Am Not a Human Being had the odds stacked against it in more ways than one. Weezy was incarcerated at the time of its release, he had just released his oft-dissed Rebirth, and his fans were still waiting on Tha Carter IV. So if anyone thought Human Being was going to be fairly received, they were sorely mistaken.
This was, however, another case where the reviews were mostly favorable and it did debut at No. 1 on the charts. But when the majority is expecting you to drop greatness instead of a for-the-fans release, you have to know you're in for some hate. And that's true even if your album has some strong cuts like "I'm Single," "Gonorrhea," and "Right Above It."
