Don’t let the title of Lil Wayne’s latest LP, I’m Not a Human Being II
, fool you. The rapper’s recent, perhaps even near-death series of seizures
reaffirmed his status as a mere mortal. Though I suppose aliens could also be susceptible to (allegedly) overdosing on concoctions of codeine and soda. Luckily Weezy bounced back with the resilience of a Robert Patrick character in a Terminator
flick. Soon, Music City Weezy-heads can assess the degree of the rapper-turned-extreme-sports-brah-re-turned-rapper’s humanity in the flesh when his just-announced Weezy-gone-Warped Tour-style (?) America’s Most Wanted Music Festival hits Bridgestone Arena on July 10.
As many locals may recall (or simply can’t forget), the last time Weezy graced the local enormodome was when we performed with Kid Rock at the 2008 CMA Awards, and in the process inspired the hands-down greatest Cream comment of all-time (screen-capped for posterity after the jump). Web surf this-a-way for America’s Most Wanted ticket info. Atlanta’s poet laureate, T.I. and Atlanta’s answer to T-Pain (Future) round out the bill.
