Lil Wayne’s Real Carter V, Action Bronson Promises More Chips, Kanye West’s Yeezus Tour Designer Revealed?
Treat Tuesday. It’s a day full of treats, so why not start things off with Lil Wayne‘s son turning five years old on this special date? Speaking of dates, it looks like the best kept secret in Queens, New York Action Bronson has started his own countdown. If you’re into counting, then you’ll have to count how many different jaw-dropping outfits Kanye West has worn on his Yeezus tour thus far and thank the designer behind them. All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Tha Carter V
Even though we all know Lil Wayne has a lot of women that are proud to call themselves his baby’s mother, there’s not a lot we know about the kids he has brought into this world aside from Reginae. It looks like Wayne’s eldest son has hit the five-year mark. Bossip is on it:
Happy Birthday to the real Carter III. Weezy’s second baby mama Sarah Vivan dedicated this adorable collage to her son Dwayne Carter III in honor of his fifth birthday. (Bossip)
It’s interesting to note that despite how famous Wayne is and all of the baby mothers he does have, you never hear him name get tossed around in the legal drama or him being a bad father. Is there any chance Wayne is going to spend some time with his son on such a special day? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
2. Time For Some Action
Action Bronson is either hit or miss. Either people are familiar with his music and love everything that he’s about or else they’ve never heard of him and aren’t interested in trying to find out what makes him so special. For everyone that does support what he’s about, you’re going to love learning his much anticipated Blue Chips 2 mixtape is coming sooner than you think. The Masked Gorilla has spotted the newest update:
Earlier this month Action Bronson announced that he would release his new Blue Chips 2 mixtape, the first day it rains in November. Today, Bronson scrapped that idea and set an official date. Bam Bam announced that Blue Chips 2 will be available to download on November 1st. Click here to check out the track list. (The Masked Gorilla)
Hopefully this project will be as well-received as last year’s release. Along with this, he’s going to be touring with Eminem next year and continue making a name for himself. #SOHHWhatchaThink?
3. The Blame Game
If you’re upset with what Kanye West has been wearing during his Yeezus tour, then you really can’t call yourself a Kanye West fan. He’s always been known to go against the grain and do things that’ll make you scratch your head and try to understand. It looks like with such a busy schedule, he relied on a wardrobe provided by none other than Maison Martin Margiela. Complex has the rundown:
When we tracked the evolution of Kanye West’s onstage outfits, it was an exercise that would hopefully clue us in on what Ye had planned to wear on the “Yeezus Tour,” which kicked off last weekend with a wild show in Seattle. That sartorial path has now led to a complete tour wardrobe supplied by Maison Martin Margiela, including the four masks and ripped pants. Telegraph is reporting that the French fashion house supplied Yeezy with “10 couture pieces, 20 ready-to-wear pieces, and an ‘exclusive’ pair of trainers.”
If the Seattle performance is any indication of what attendees can expect, then it looks like cities around the country will soon host Jesus, a mountain, and numerous outfit changes that are all very advanced looks more befitting a staged spectacle than a stroll down the block. From what we’ve seen, the clothing is an integral part of the extravaganza, and it’s no surprise that Margiela is the label behind the dramatic silhouettes, wild graphics, and, of course, the masks.
However, after Virgil Abloh Tweeted out the below, we wonder if this means that we’re in for more Margiela gear? It could mean that the elaborate DONDA-produced stage set will be different for other tour stops, but maybe Ye has more MMM looks up his drapey sleeves. Only one way to find out. (Complex)
Is Kanye West really going to make the masks a fashionable accessory people can wear out in public? He’s pushed boundaries in the past but this seems a bit too hard to pull off. No pun intended. Could you imagine wearing one of those masks and going into 7Eleven for a Big Gulp one night? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.
