2013 wasn’t all peaches and cream for the Young Money rapper. In March, he was rushed to the hospital after suffering several seizures.
His experimental I Am Not a Human Being II album, also released in March, barely fueled the same results as its chart-topping predecessor Tha Carter IV. (I Am Not a Human Being II peaked at No. 2 on the charts and has sold half a million copies to date, compared to Tha Carter IV 3.5 million.) As a result his name was omitted from the BET and VMA nominees lists.
Weezy took to Twitter to apologize for his absence from the upcoming awards shows.
Lil Wayne is currently working on his Dedication 5 mixtape with DJ Drama. He releasedDedication 4 around Labor Day last year, so expect 5 to hit soon. The “6 Foot 7 Foot” rapper is currently on his “America’s Most Wanted” tour. It raps Sept. 2 in Phoenix, AZ.
