Lil Wayne is Serious About This Skating Thing

5 Oct

Is it weird that Lil Wayne being completely into this skating thing turns me on even more?  Hmm, I think I might need to see someone about this.  Anyways, Lil Wayne opened up his new skating park, Trukstop Park, in New Orleans, the rappers hometown, on Wednesday.  He even did some tricks on the ramps (although apparently he didn’t always stay on his board, again, that just endears him to me even more; ugh I’m sick I know).


NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Lil Wayne showed off his beginner skateboarding skills alongside a group of professional skateboarders Wednesday at the opening of the artist’s new Trukstop park in his hometown.

The Grammy-winning rapper demonstrated jumps — but didn’t always land on his board — while Paul Rodriguez and Theotis Beasley from the Los Angeles area performed kick flips, board slides, hand plants and other higher-level tricks for the crowd at the park located in the Lower 9th Ward, one of the most devastated sections of the city after levees failed during Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Lil Wayne told The Associated Press he started skating about a year and a half ago when he saw someone else skating and thought it looked interesting.

“I thought it would be just a hobby, and I thought only people with skills can do it,” he said. “When you finally get into it and you learn to like it, you’ll quickly learn to love it. It’s more than just four wheels and a piece of wood.”

The rapper, who turns 30 on Thursday and recently launched a skateboarding-inspired clothing line called Trukfit, said he was excited to share his newfound passion with his hometown.

OMG, I love this man even more.  Look I know he’s a bit of a man whore (hopefully though with him about to hit 30 and all of his little girls starting to notice boys, he’s become less of a man whore), but regardless, I love him.  I really, really do.  Ugh ok I’m done.
