“Obviously, I can only fit so many songs on a CD. So what I’m doing is there will be a Take Care physical edition in stores that’ll hopefully have 15 to 17 songs on it. Then I know a lot of people do deluxe editions. But since October 24 is a special day for me, I got, like, a Take Care birthday edition that I’m going to put on iTunes that will have extra songs. I really want to encourage people to be excited about the album releasing. I remember how excited a lot of artists used to make me. I used to want to buy the physical copy to see the artwork. And if there were any bonus tracks, I’d go find them. I’m definitely trying to cause some of that excitement. I hope people go get the songs off the birthday edition. It’s going to be great, man. I’ve got a wide array of music this time. I’m very excited.”—DRAKE on ‘Take Care’ Album Release plans..
Between Lil Wayne’s “Sorry 4 The Wait” mixtape and his highly anticipated “Tha Carter IV,” due for an Aug. 29 post-VMA release, the rapper has a lot of ground to cover during his upcoming appearances.
With dates scheduled through September, Weezy’s I Am Still Music Tour will continue to undergo changes in its set-list. Wayne’s musical director Gil Smith spoke with MTV News about what concert-goers can expect.
"I think just in terms of the tour, we’ve been adding songs here and there," he said. "You gotta understand with Wayne, there is so much music. I mean, we can talk about ‘Tha Carter IV,’ and then we can sit down and have a different conversation about ‘Sorry 4 the Wait,’ which was a whole different thing that he put out. So it’s so much music. Even when we’re on the road, he’s releasing song after song, so we got to kind of find ways to incorporate that as we go along."
Feel free to fold into yourselves and die a little, too.
I am simultaneously extremely grateful to MTV for all the crap, trashy, amazing reality television that they have produced for my consumption… while also being very annoyed that the people featured in these shows over the years insist on attempting to exist in the real world. You exist on my television and that is it.
