Lil Wayne Launching Spectre by Supra Sneakers After Dropped by PepsiCo


Lil Wayne


Weezy celebrates the launch of his upcoming shoe line in partnership with the skating brand in a Miami party.

Though Lil Wayne has lost his endorsement deal with PepsiCo, he still has another reason to celebrate. The Young Money/Cash Money rap mogul has just launched his Spectre by Supra footwear line at an indoor ramp in Miami over the weekend.

Weezy signed a partnership deal with the skating brand due to his love for skateboarding. At the launch party, the MC was joined by his manager Cortez Bryant, Young Money president Mack Maine, fellow rhymer Bun B, and pro skateboarder Stevie Williams.

Weezy will oversee the design of the shoes. "I've been rocking this shoe before I even knew what it was, so for me to start skating now and shoe lines start coming at me, it would've been only right to mess with the people I been rocking with," he told MTV.

Weezy was let go as a spokesmodel by PepsiCo due to his controversial lyrics that made light of the death of slain civil rights icon Emmett Till. The rapper quickly issued an apology, but it was not favorably received by the Till Family.
