Offset joins elite company in retouching his magnum opus, "Father of 4."
Capping off an unprecedented "AMA" session taking place on Twitter, Offset revealed his plans to add several new songs to a repackaged version of Father of 4 - within the same breath of a revelatory posting spree that brought attention to CultureIII's speculative launch date, his praise of Eminem, and the potential (fingers crossed) for a 2nd Without Warning project with Metro Boomin and 21 Savage.

The inevitable "repackage" as Offset calls it, will put Father of 4 in the same category as several other rap albums who generated a second wave of interest under the same pretenses. Looking back, some of those "deluxe" antics have been quite preposterous.
In 2014, the Wu-Tang Clan published a limited edition copy of A Better Tomorow complete with a fixed on Bluetooth speaker. MF Doom once delivered the deluxe version to an album in a lunchbox set. Hell, even the Fat Boys delivered theirs in a pizza box, and GZA his classic Liquid Swords LP in a one of a king chess board casing. So, truthfully speaking, Offset's plan to unveil new songs to his solo debut is actually quite pedestrian in comparison - but don't let that dissuade you from lining up come re-launch time.
