CRITIC REVIEWS

70
AllMusic

This is an indulgent jumble of a sideline release, but that doesn't mean Wayne isn't in fine form. 

60
Spin

You're better off soaking in the good choices here and resigning yourself to enduring the bad ones. 

60
HipHopDX

For the casual Weezy fan (one that hears the music but doesn't listen), I Am Not a Human Being II is perfect mindless fun. However, for those who expected more from this repeatedly delayed effort, Wayne may have to hop in his spaceship and try again.

50
The 405

There's a few moments of quality here, but nowhere near enough to sustain interest over the albums hour.

50
A.V. Club

Rappers are rarely less appealing than when they’re rhyming about getting off, a subject that tends to invite misplaced aggression and puerile humor, and that’s especially true for Wayne, who seems to regress deeper into a middle-school mindset with each passing year.

40
PopMatters

I Am Not a Human Being II is a poor effort for sure, but more startling might be the fact that it’s over five years now since Wayne was anything near his peak and he shows no signs of reversing the slump.

40
Consequence of Sound

The beats are so simple that they’re a nonfactor, and there aren’t very many funny lines — which was Wayne’s most redeeming quality in the past.

39
Pitchfork

No song on II is meaningfully distinguishable from the next. Everything pumps out in an undifferentiated slurry of interchangeable dick jokes, drug references, and lame puns.

30
Tiny Mix Tapes

Wayne doesn’t just make dick jokes: he sets a Guinness World Record for the most phallic metaphors in any rap album, ever. 

30
NME

Wayne's 10th studio album sees memory of his charisma and sparkle during that mid '00s era fade further.

25
Pretty Much Amazing

The music isn’t as good as it was, sure, but what’s truly maddening is his apparent indifference to his own decline.

After he said, "I'm in the ocean getting shark pussy" That's when it started going down hill. This album is not consistently awful, there's a few bangers here and there, and I even enjoy a lot of the corny punchlines that Wayne throws out there. My problem is with the final 5 tracks, being the most boring repetitive doodoo balls I've heard in my life. That 1/3 of the album single-handedly dragged this down below Rebirth for me... And the features sucked beer nuts as well o(≧口≦)o

Of all the GOAT's, Wayne's discography definitely has the most duds and disappointing drops. At first, it confused me - why would a GOAT drop so much mid and trash? I didn't understand it until I saw an excerpt from Wayne confirm he doesn't sequence his albums. Not only that, he doesn't even decide which songs make the cut and which ones don't. He has a team for that sort of thing. So, uh, yeah, after hearing that, albums like I Am Not A Human Being II make a little more sense. Lay You Down's ... read more

Just really bad. Boring production with some of Waynes worst lyrics. If you want to hear some of the worst puns about Wayne eating pussy then this is the album for you.

Best Track: God Bless Amerika
Worst Track: Trippy

now as you can most likely tell from my previous reviews, i don't take them very seriously. a few of them have some genuine opinions and critiques, but that's kind of uncommon. anyway, whenever i listen to a dreadful album, i always try to make a big ol joke out of it at its dispense. but uh... i can't do that with this album. this album no doubt is fucking garbage, but not to the point where it reaches memeability. it doesn't go far enough to do that. this album has some of the worst pen game ... read more
