Lil Wayne has decided to push back the release of his new album, “I Am Not A Human Being II.” It was originally scheduled to hit shelves in time for the holidays. The latest word is the album will drop in early 2013, with no concrete date.

We’ve seen a lot of big debuts in recent months from artists like Meek Mill and Kendrick Lamar. Another hip hop neophyte, Chief Keef, is set to drop his freshman project, “Finally Rich,” which was originally scheduled to be a mixtape. It’ll be available for purchase on December 18th.
