5 Thoughts About Lil Wayne's New Album and the Events Surrounding It

It's weird to hear Lil Wayne rapping about drugs after he nearly died because of them.

"Medicine, I treat it like peppermints" is the fourth line on I Am Not A Human Being II. What follows is an album full of similar, drug-fueled boasts: "Ain't nothing sweet but the codeine," "I graduated to better drugs," and "I got Xanax, Percocet, promethazine with codeine." While there's a bit of punk rock ethos associated with Wayne's disregard for his health, much of it is concerning, especially less than two weeks after TMZ reported that he was being read his last rites after a syrup bender. Six years ago, Wayne told us: "Weed and syrup 'til I die. As a matter of fact, it's gon kill me, bitch." Let's hope that's not a self-fulfilling prophecy.
