Lil Wayne has plenty of plans beyond rapping – and most of them involve going skateboarding.
Weezy has been talking to MTV about what he can see himself doing once he’s out of the music game – something he can see happening sooner rather than later – and mooted: “My day job would probably be a sports analyst and I would skate all night instead of being in the studio all night.” With typical Lil Wayne braggadocio though, he doesn’t just want to skate for fun – he wants to make an impact; saying that he “wants to be vital in the [skate] world”.
The skate fraternity is quite tight knit however, and there’s been some hate towards the MC’s plans, though he insisted that he’s more than adept at handling it: “I never been sonned or nothing like that because I did the eight months on the island, so you know sonning me is going to be a little difficult,” he laughed, referencing his time in jail on Rikers Island.
So who is against his move to four wheels? A crew from his native New Orleans apparently. “There is this skater crew called- I don’t know why I’m giving them love, but it’s called the ‘FWC.’ It’s called the ‘F--k Weezy Campaign’ and it’s a whole bunch of skaters that’s just like, 'we don’t like the fact that Wayne skates period.' Like 'stick to doing what you do, don’t join our world, we don’t want you here,' that type of thing.” Which seems like an odd thing to be getting het up about.
