Lil Wayne to Focus on Skateboarding Instead of Music
Lil Wayne has always been rather prolific in terms of producing music and recently revealed that on August 15, 2012, he will be dropping his mixtape Dedication 4 which is the aptly named fourth installment of the Dedication mixtape series. It’s also supposed to include remixes of Ca$h Out's "Cashin' Out," Big Sean's "Burn" and Chief Keef's "I Don't Like."
Weezy fans may be disappointed to learn that this could be the last new music we hear from him in a while because he’s decided to reprioritize and skateboarding is going to become his main focus, while music takes a back seat.
He explained: "I picked up the skateboard and I thought it'd be a hobby and what happened is it's a lifestyle. In order to be fully committed, you have to live that lifestyle. With these young kids now, you have to be about that life. It's kind of putting rap on the back burner. Rap is taking a backseat to skating. I think I deserve that. I think fans deserve a little to no Wayne. I've been everywhere. I've been out on everybody's song. My artists have been doing awesome. I believe my fans deserve some peace from me. I'll be on my skateboard in the meantime."
Also, in case you’ve ever wondered about the difference between an album and a mixtape, Wayne offers an explanation: "when I'm mentally doing the album and doing those songs, I make sure I stay on subject [and] that I'm saying things in the song [so] that you can be singing the song and repeat those things and they still make a lot of sense to actually say. I make sure I do all those things when it comes to making an album. When I'm making a mixtape, there's not half of that thought. I just say what comes to my mind, I make it make sense, and that's how it goes... 'Mixtape Weezy' means freelancing my thoughts everywhere and just putting them together like a puzzle."
