Bogus Boys), KD Young Cocky, Lil' Johnny, and Lil' Herb appeared via Instagram promoting the album. The album is releasing on July 22nd.

Jordan Brand is looking forward too drop some anticipated Retro VI's this fall. Both the "Infrared 3M" and "OVO" are scheduled to drop during autumn. The "Infrared 3M" will sport the classic black/infrared colorway that is known when Michael Jordan won his first Championship in 1991. The 3M will be featured under the black upper of the sneaker. The second of the VI's is the OVO aka October's Very Own. The black upper with the Gold accents goes well with the dominant Gold and Black Midsole with the icy bottom. The OVO owl will be on the heel, since this will be the first release for Drake, the first Jordan Brand Member who is a musician. While release dates are in the air, these shoes will be the hottest pick up in the fall. Check it out pics here.
