Lil Wayne Coming Out With Skate Shoe Line


Lil Wayne


The rapper reveals his new business venture with popular skate brand Supra and Dr. Dre Beats.

Lil Wayne shows his seriousness in the world of skateboarding, confirming to MTV that he is developing a skate shoe line. The rapper, who makes his fondness of the street sports public, has struck a deal with famous skate brand Supra to have his own sneaker coming out.

Not giving a lot of details, Wayne said in his interview with MTV's "Hip Hop Pov", "I've also signed with Supra," adding "Dr. Dre Beats, I've got my own beats coming out soon. I get money." The shoe line will be independent of his clothing line Trukfit.

Wayne actually had hinted this shoe venture back in February when he said, "I do have a shoe coming out soon but it won't be Trukfit, I have a shoe with a well-known company. I just don't want to say yet because I haven't dotted the line yet."

Also in earlier interview with "Hip Hop Pov", Wayne revealed how skateboarding brought an element which he thought was missing from his music. "Skating has become one of my pure passions, I believe I've found myself," Weezy said. "Let me give it to you this way, I needed something more. When I picked up that [skateboard] deck, I was like I want to skate, I want a ramp on my roof now."

He has teamed up with Mountain Dew to build a new skate park in his native Louisiana.
