The American Eagle brand has announced a new collaboration with multi-platinum-selling hip-hop artist Lil Wayne, with the launch of the AE x Young Money collection.

Wayne's 25-piece men's clothing and accessories collection includes AE's stacked jeans, hoodies, t-shirts, shorts, boxers, socks and hats. Each piece will feature Young Money graphics inspired by Wayne's record label.

"I define my own style on my own terms and created a collection with American Eagle that is unapologetically me," says Wayne. "The AE x Young Money collection brings together music and fashion, two of the most powerful forms of self-expression that have allowed me to always live my truth."

The new line and fall '19 campaign will also be available in a new range of sizes for the first time. AE is expanding its jean sizing for all styles in stores and online with the women's collection now ranging from 00 to 24 and the men's line from 26 to 48.

This is not the first time that AE has tapped into the music scene for fashion inspiration. Late last year the company partnered with Viacom Nickelodeon Consumer Products to create a line of clothes featuring the MTV logo.
