Lil Wayne Releasing EP from Prison in September

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.
