Lil Wayne Explains Album Cover For

Lil Wayne delves into the meaning behind his newest album's cover art.

Earlier this week, Lil Wayne revealed the cover art for his upcoming album I Am Not a Human Being II, designed by Kanye West's DONDA think tank.

In an interview with nola.com, Wayne discussed the meaning behind the art, which is a moth on a black background through a red filter. 

"(Kanye) said, you know, man, let me do your cover. I saw the cover and I approved it," recalled Wayne. "He had an explanation behind it – he said, he chose the moth butterfly thing because it has so many different stages of life, and it goes through so many forms and changes, and no one can figure it out, and it’s always beautiful. At a time it’s ugly and at a time it’s beautiful too. And that’s me.”

Wayne also spoke about the album itself, which is due in stores on March 26th, 2013.

“I have a lot of guests on the album," revealed Weezy. "That’s what’s unusual about the album. I’m usually a two or three feature-type guy. But this album, I have a lot of features because I have a lot of friends, a lot of people that wanted to help out. I just appreciate them all. And I have a lot of different production on it too. I got Juicy J, David Banner, Soulja Boy – and that’s the production.”

In a recent interview with HipHopDX, Gunplay revealed that he would be featured on the album as well.
