There are still 48 days left on Lil Wayne's prison sentence, but rapper's new video for "I Am Not a Human Being" is here now. The song, the title track from Human Being, an EP due September 27th (Weezy's birthday), is the latest in a string of music videos Wayne filmed prior to entering New York's Rikers Island in March, after pleading guilty to weapons charges. The highlight of the video may be spotting Wayne's clever assortment of tattoos that can only be seen under ultraviolet light.

"Right Above It," featuring Drake, was the first single off the forthcoming EP, which is reportedly the first of two Lil Wayne releases that will hit by the end of 2010: Young Money president Mick Maine has said that the plan is to release the long-awaited Tha Carter IV on November 5th, the same day Lil Wayne is released from prison.

“Try a Little Tenderness”

Otis Redding | 1966

This pop standard had been previously recorded by dozens of artists, including by Bing Crosby 33 years before Otis Redding, who usually wrote his own songs, cut it. It was actually Sam Cooke’s 1964 take, which Redding’s manager played for Otis, that inspired the initially reluctant singer to take on the song. Isaac Hayes, then working as Stax Records’ in-house producer, handled the arrangement, and Booker T. and the MG’s were the backing band. Redding’s soulful version begins quite slowly and tenderly itself before mounting into a rousing, almost religious “You’ve gotta hold her, squeeze her …” climax. “I did that damn song you told me to do,” Redding told his manager. “It’s a brand new song now.”
