He’s experimented with a band, WZRD and hasn’t put out a s0lo album since “Man on the Moon II”. He’s planning on releasing his new album “Indicud” though in 2012 and so far what we’ve heard from it sounds good. Here’s the latest single he dropped, “King Wizard”

Lil Wayne to release “I am Not a Human Being II” in November

After finally releasing “Dedication 4” it looks like Lil Wayne is ready to give his fans some more music.

He released “I am Not A Human Being” in 2010 and the album was less than spectacular, like most of Wayne’s recent work.

Kanye West talks about the concept of “Cruel Summer”

Some people may not like Kanye, but we all know by now that he puts a lot of thought and time into his music. He produces a lot of it and made all the last cuts on “Cruel Summer”. In a recent interview, he talks about “Cruel Summer” and a lot of the concept behind it.

“We spend just as much time working on the actual album packaging, the video concept, the song… Everything is equally as important. It got to a point where I had to have the artwork in front of me while I was working on the songs, and I would listen and say, ‘Does this song sound like this packaging looks?” Kanye said.

He also talked about other artists, and how he gets mad at people who make good music.  “I like when I get mad at music because it’s so good. It’s like, oh shit, why didn’t we think of that? Why didn’t we do that?”

You can see the whole interview below, and check out “Cruel Summer” now.

It’s pretty good and with the album coming so soon, it’s the last push for attention. The album could also be the last we see of Lupe, who claims he’s going to retire after he drops the album.
