Lil Wayne to release new EP while in jail

Download expected to be released on September 27

Lil Wayne is set to release a new EP in September – despite being incarcerated for gun crime.

The rapper’s co-manager Cortez Bryant told Vibe magazine that the EP would be named ‘I’m Not A Human Being’ and will be out digitally on September 27 – Wayne‘s birthday.

“We not about to roll out no three-month set-up,” he said. “I’m not even putting it out in stores. We just going to put it out virally and maybe package it up for Christmas. Give ’em a hard copy later for fan appreciation.”

Bryant said the EP would be a prelude to the rapper’s forthcoming ‘Tha Carter IV’ album.

Lil Wayne began a year-long jail sentence in New York for gun crime in March.
