Just under a month from today, Wayne's is expected to release a 10-song digital album, I Am Not A Human Being, due on his September 27 birthday. Presently incarcerated on Rikers Island, Wayne's artist and acting Young Money head, Mack Maine, told MTV that the most anticipated Weezy project, Tha Carter IV, could also come this fall.
"Tha Carter IV plans we had and still have are to put Tha Carter IV out the day he comes out [of prison]," Mack Maine revealed. He also said that he, Birdman and manager Cortez Bryant worked with Wayne very closely on these C4 recordings. Personnel was not revealed, as there are reportedly a wealth of songs to choose from, with six such creations confirmed. If Mack Maine's plans come to fruition, Tha Carter IV will release November 5.
That same day, after Young Money's Drake had suggested it over a week ago, a welcome-home concert is in the works for the New Orleans superstar. According to Mack Maine, Manhattan's Madison Square Garden is among the considerations, as Wayne will be released just miles away at Rikers.
