Offset joins elite company in retouching his magnum opus, “Father of 4.”

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.
