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."

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
