Lil Wayne’s “I Am Not A Human Being II” is expected to sell approximately 210,000 copies in its first week.

With the release of a new batch of album sales numbers, it appears that Young Money rapper Lil Wayne’s new album I Am Not A Human Being II will be unable to top the success of past albums from Weezy.

Radio.com reports that first week sales for I Am Not A Human Being II will likely top a little over 200,000 and while that number far surpasses first week sales for 2010’s I Am Not A Human Being (125,000 copies sold), it doesn’t come close to the 964,000 albums sold thanks toTha Carter IV.

If sales predictions are in fact correct, Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience will again find itself clenching the number one spot on album charts.

The 20/20 Experience far exceeded sales expectations when it was revealed that the Timbaland-produced album sold nearly one-million copies in its first week.

The release of I Am Not A Human Being II comes shortly after Lil Wayne was released from Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after suffering from numerous seizures.

Well in terms of making money…200K copies in a week is pretty decent still ay?

Lil Wayne Replies To Pitbull’s “Harlem Shake” Diss

lil-wayne

Lil Wayne takes to Twitter to address Pitbull’s diss track aimed in his direction.

After Lil Wayne made some flammable comments about Miami Heat and claimed he “fucked Chris Bosh’s wife,” several took offense to his statements including Luther “Uncle Luke” Campbell, Trick Daddy and Pitbull, the latter of whom dropped a diss record “Harlem Shake (Welcome 2 Dade County).”

Now, Weezy has broken his silence on the diss, taking to Twitter to post a simple message that responds to the verbal attack. “Dam pit bull bro I thought u was kool,” he wrote earlier this morning.

Pitbull responded, writing, “I am cool papo but imagine me shitting on anything new orleans which I was just there for super bowl the big easy I loved it. the world shows me love and vice versa but miami is all I got no disrespect just the truth”

On his freestyle over Baauer’s “Harlem Shake,” Pitbull puts Wayne and his associates in the crosshairs, berating him for disrespecting his hometown’s team. “You got money, yeah that’s sweet / But we all know Slim and Baby really eat / You talk Miami, yes you talkin’ Heat / Moral of the story, don’t shit where you eat,” he raps.

Wayne, who is currently prepping the release of his upcoming album I Am Not a Human Being II, initially made the comments during a tirade at an NBA All-Star Weekend appearance. He later clarifiedthat he meant no disrespect to LeBron James, who he mentioned in the rant, but maintained his disses towards everyone else including Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh.

The YMCMB chief then apologized to Miami, Florida for any disrespect its citizens may have felt. “I really want to get out there is that I do apologize for the misunderstanding to the city of Miami,” he said. “I love everyone here, it’s just I’m passionate about sports and I felt very disrespected, that’s all. I felt very, very disrespected.”

Come on guy’s…kiss and make up already!

Wiz Khalifa Confirms Lil Wayne & Drake For “Work Hard, Play Hard” Remix

Wiz Khalifa Confirms Lil Wayne & Drake For "Work Hard, Play Hard" Remix

Wiz Khalifa enlists the Young Money rappers for the remix to his hit.

Wiz Khalifa doesn’t usually bust out the big guns for guest features, but he decided to use his “Rap powers” for the remix to his single “Work Hard, Play Hard.” During an interview with Cosmic Kev, the Taylor Gang leader confirmed Drake and Lil Wayne for the new version of the cut, stating that he had them send verses over e-mail.

“I also got a remix, man. A remix that I’m really, really excited about,” he said. “Chevy’s not on it. Chevy’s on the album. I went big for the remix. I went different than what people usually expect from me. I usually don’t use my Rap powers, and talk to the people that I could talk to get stuff done. I usually just be thuggin’ it out. But I took the thuggery off and I talked to Wayne and Drake, because I got Rap powers. I got verses in my e-mail, too.”

“Work Hard, Play Hard” serves as the first single off of Wiz’s upcoming sophomore album O.N.I.F.C., releasing September 18th.

This should be a GOOD look!

Lil Wayne’s Entourage Accused Of Attacking Photographer

Lil Wayne’s crew reportedly attacked a photographer in Miami, Florida.

Lil Wayne’s entourage has been accused of attacking a photographer last week in Miami, Florida.

According to TMZ, the photographer filed a police report claiming that he was pushed to the ground in the rain by the crew and that they also trashed his bicycle.

It all began when the photographer spotted Weezy and co. skateboarding outside of a church in a zone prohibiting skateboarding. After taking a few flicks, the photog says that they packed up after it began to rain. He followed them to their car while taking pictures, but Wayne ordered his collective to take the man’s camera. Eight men surrounded him and intimidated him into deleting several pics.

One of Wayne’s associates then spat on him and another pushed him to the ground. The crew also beat up his bicycle with a skateboard. After escaping, the photographer went to the Miami Beach Police Station and filed the report.

Oh dear!

The Southern rapper previously explained why he’s able to switch from rap to pop at a moment’s notice.

“For me I feel like I been going through phases. And I feel like I’mma always go through phases,” he explained. “When I first started the first song I ever released was ‘Cloud 9.’ And that was like a smoker’s anthem. The first whole half of the song I was just singing on it…I  kinda went through that phase. Went through [an] alternative phase where all I wanted to do was make rock music. Now I just feel like rapping. I feel like naturally I’mma sing, throw a melody here and there but I’m in emcee mode now.”
