Having a super successful "Tha Carter" album series, is now eying to launch one or two more thriving franchises by prepping a sequel for "" and "I'm Not a Human Being" each. The plan is revealed to MTV News by president Mack Maine on the heels of victorious "".

Talking about the follow-up to "I'm Not a Human Being", Maine says, "He's, like, 12 songs in, and he went crazy. He went left. He's in Martian land right now." Although the project is crafted back to back with rock-influenced "Rebirth 2", the 28-year-old label boss assures that the two efforts will be unlike one another.

"He gets to show his rock side, he gets to show his gangsta side and talk to the women on one side," Maine gushes before adding, "On 'I Am Not a Human Being', he is definitely showing some weirdo, left-brain, I'm-not-from-here type side. He can say what he wants. There are no boundaries, there are no limits."

"He captures all those different audiences, and then at a concert or a show, you bring all those different people together," the rapper continues. "You bring your 'Rebirth' rock people, you bring your 'Carter' people, and you bring your 'I Am Not a Human Being' [crowd], and you have a great show. That's why we sell out arenas every night."

Beside recording the two albums, Weezy also focuses on making the follow-up to "" album with everyone in the label being put together for another star-studded affair. "It won't take long. Too much creativity for it to take a long time," Maine previously said to XXL Mag.

Weezy released "Tha Carter IV" in August. It bowed at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 200 by selling a grand total of 964,000 copies. A year prior, Weezy dropped both "Rebirth" and "I'm Not a Human Being" in February and September respectively. Both of the albums debuted at the second places on the U.S. album chart.

Through "Tha Carter IV", Weezy scored the second-largest sales week of the year. The first biggest sales week of 2011 was still held by with her "" which sold more than a million last July. However, it should be noted that the Mother Monster got such a huge selling number with the help of 99-cent sale pricing on Amazon, while Weezy didn't use such tactics.

Talking about Weezy's achievements, Maine once said, "Wayne set a standard and they [Young Money's artists] all trying to follow that." He added, "If you follow our artists, you always see Gudda saying he's in the studio. 's working on his new album now. In between he'll be touring to promote it."

"Nicki works her ass off. She just came off tour with us and jumped right on the tour with . 's on tour with and trying to work on his album. Gudda, Millz, Lil Chuckee [they're all] working. They all following the format."
