"He's like 12 songs in, and he went crazy," Young Money member Mack Maine says. "He went left. He's in Martian land right now."

NEW YORK -- Hot off the heels of the Billboard 200 No. 1 album Tha Carter IV, Lil Wayne is going back in with a few familiar titles: second installments of both Rebirth and I Am Not a Human Being. 

Young Money member Mack Maine told MTV News that these different series of records allow for different kinds of rhymes.

"He gets to show his rock side, he gets to show his gangsta side and talk to the women on one side," Maine said about Rebirth and Tha Carter IV. "On I Am Not a Human Being, he is definitely showing some weirdo, left-brain, 'I'm-not-from-here' type [of] side. He can say what he wants. There are no boundaries, there are no limits."

Weezy certainly has his work cut out for him. While Rebirth and I Am Not a Human Being were not as well received critically as his Tha Carter series, both have been No.1 on the Billboard charts.

Despite the pressure, Wayne places his creativity first.

"He's like 12 songs in, and he went crazy," Maine said. "He went left. He's in Martian land right now."

In other Weezy news, an '05 track featuring Maine and former Young Money member Curren$y surfaced on the Internet. According to DJ Ill Will, this was one of several tracks Wayne cut with him during that session.
