Lil Wayne to Release Skate Shoe Line
As if his rap superstardom wasn’t enough, Lil Wayne has branched out to other ventures. He has recently announced that he has signed with skate brand Supra to debut a line of skate shoe sneakers.
Back in February, Wayne had 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."
The skateboarding rapper explains his passions has grown for the sport, "Skating has become one of my pure passions, I believe I've found myself. 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."
Weezy also has his own clothing line, Trukfit, which stands for “The Reason You Kill For It”. In January he explained that as a kid he used to grab clothing from the back of a booster truck, “When a person could spot a fake, they’d be like 'you got on the truck fit. So now it’s cool to have on the Truckfit, ya dig!”
The clothing line is influenced by skateboarding, music, and street art, and has been expanded to include clothing for children and teens. It has been described as such, “The highly anticipated line of uniquely designed apparel was inspired by Lil Wayne’s passion for skateboarding and quality street wear. Pulling influence from Lil Wayne’s distinctive style and voice, Trukfit is made from quality fabrics and features bold graphics at a moderate price point.”
He has also revealed he plans to be releasing his own Dr. Dre Beats headphones. There is a lot in the works for Wayne it seems. How does he have time for it all?!
