Now, the statement has led Wayne to partner with the website and brand Advisory Board Crystals for new merch. The longsleeve shirt, seen above, features screenprinted graphics such as Tha Carter V cover shot, Grammy awards, Wikipedia and Universal Music logos to create a "visual representation" of Wayne's Wikipedia page.
Advisory Board Crystals is set to donate a portion of profits from shirt sales to the Wikimedia Foundation. The shirt is available for purchase here for 12 hours.
Like prior preorders of Tha Carter V, a purchase of the shirt will include a digital copy of the album and presale ticket access to Wayne's 2019 headlining tour, which has yet to be announced.
