Lil Wayne's I Am Not a Human Being II album fittingly debuted in the No. 2 spot on the Billboard album chart, selling 217,430 copies in its first week.

Weezy's latest album was not strong enough to tackle the current chart king, Justin Timberlake. In just two weeks, Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience has pushed more than a million copies, 317,037 of which were sold over the last week.

While the IANAHB II sales figures pale in comparison to JT's, they are on track with Wayne's previous IANAHB album, which dropped in September 2010, first as a digital release. The project sold 110,000 digital downloads upon its debut to take the No. 2 spot on Billboard.

Leading up to the IANAHB II, Wayne suffered a series of seizures and was admitted to L.A.'s Cedars Sinai Hospital, where he stayed for several days. The father of four was released days before the album hit stores, and recorded a video thanking fans for their prayers, and announcing his America's Most Wanted tour.

Less than a week later, the multi-Grammy winner revealed his epilepsy diagnosis. "The bad news is I'm epileptic so I'm prone to seizures," he admitted. "This isn't my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth or seventh seizure. I've had a bunch of seizures. Y'all just never hear about them."

Wayne will set out on his America's Most Wanted tour this July, with T.I. and Future.
