Lil Wayne's "I Am Not A Human Being" music video leaked last week. Director David Rousseau has offered an insight into the clip, comparing the rapper to sports superstar Michael Jordan. "It's one of those things where you can interpret it like we're trying to dissect who Lil Wayne is," Rousseau said in an interview. "How does his mind work? He's almost grown into a mythology now. He's not even human. He's like Michael Jordan. The way Michael Jordan dunks a ball wasn't even human...It's just that dissection of the myth and the man, separating him from the lyrics...Because he's one of those artists where people hang onto every lyric. He's not just rapping about anything, you know? Read between the lines and find out what his message is about and stuff. It's kind of pointing fans at doing that. There's a deeper meaning to what he's rapping about, and you gotta get in there."
Did you watch the leaked footage? It's out there, with scans of brains and purple lighting. Do you agree with the director's assessment of Wayne-as-Jordan?
