Cash Money Records co-founder Birdman has promised a new Lil Wayne album before the beginning of summer. "Wayne's got an album he’s about to drop real soon," the rapper and businessman told Complex. "It's called I Am Not A Human Being 2. It's gonna be before the summer for sure. We haven’t picked the date yet. Whenever he’s ready to drop his album, we're gonna make it do what it do. He’s definitely got an album done and ready to go."

Birdman also clarified the status of Like Father, Like Son 2, the sequel to his 2006 collaborative album with Lil Wayne. "We got that finished too. We’ve been recording that. We never stopped recording [for] that," he said. "When we get ready to drop it, we'll probably do that in the fourth quarter. Wayne wants to do the I Am Not A Human Being 2 and I want to do my solo album too, so we'll probably do that later on."

Speaking about his forthcoming solo disc, Birdman says the new set is one of his best projects. "We always say that, but I mean, you're supposed to always get better with time," he said. "We got so much growth, experience, and we're surrounded by great, young talent. They make it so easy for me to do music and I’m still enjoying it. I don’t love nothing more in life, outside of God and my family, than working with this music and [turning] these youngsters [on Cash Money] into superstars."

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
