Lil Wayne's 'Human' due Sept. 27

Jailed rapper to release EP digitally as preview of 'Carter IV'

NEW YORK -- Lil Wayne fans eagerly awaiting new music while he's in jail can rest easy. On Sept. 27, the rapper will release an EP called "I'm Not a Human Being," his manager Cortez Bryant told

"I'm putting out a [Wayne] album called 'I'm Not A Human Being' and I'll probably drop it on his birthday, September 27," Bryant said, adding that the digital release will feature all-new songs and preview Weezy's highly anticipated next full-length, "The Carter IV," the follow-up to this year's "Rebirth."

"I'm not even putting it out in stores," Bryant said. "We just gonna put it out virally and maybe package it up for Christmas. Give 'em a hard copy later for fan appreciation."

Lil Wayne has been serving out his one-year prison sentence at Rikers Island since March, after pleading guilty to attempted possession of a weapon in connection with a gun found on his tour bus after a 2007 New York concert.
