Lil Wayne To Release New Version Of Tha Carter III

^ The ultrasound for Wayne’s unborn son.

MTV had the chance to speak with Lil Wayne after the BET Hip-Hop Awards and he said that he will be dropping a new version of Tha Carter III with brand new songs. He also made a point to emphasize that it won’t be Tha Carter IV… and to keep corniness at a minimum, let’s not call it 3.5 either.

The Jay Arra also mentioned that he’ll be having a junya in a few days.

Link: Lil Wayne Expecting Son

This might be a good look, considering the replay value of some of the songs had on there, and that Blender article was quite intriguing… what if Wayne just stuck to the ballads that were safe to kill radio, and left the lean-induced bars (see: Drought 3) to the side. Also, what I wanna know is will Baby be the baby’s grandfather, or stepfather? But more importantly, will Wayne let Baby around his son when he’s not around?

A Bathing Ape Book Review

Recently releasing his retrospective book, A Bathing Ape founder, Nigo relives the past 15 years of his company’s history. We take a journey back to the time when the label was rocked by Biggie and his first tee production in 1993 to its late 90’s boom. The book holds a unique tribute to street wear, educating the reader about a history clearly better read than heard and a look into what has become of the small entity turned Japanese empire. Holding a mass influence in fashion around the globe, this Bape piece is definitely a must have for any fan or fashion enthusiast.
