We already know that Lil Wayne went platinum with Tha Carter IV in the first week worldwide, but it has took Weezy 2 weeks to officially go platinum with C4 in the US. The album sold 219,000 copies this past week, bringing the total album sales in the US at: 1,183,000! Tunechi‘s Tha Carter IV album is currently still at the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart too.
In other news, Lil Wayne has had his own personal skate ramp built in to the back of his Cadillac Escalade. The ramp is portable and will pull in and out of his Escalade, which will let Wayne practice his skateboarding skills while he is on the road touring. You can read what TMZ reported below:
Lil Wayne has seriously ramped up his tour — TMZ has learned, the rapper is practicing his skateboard skills on the road, traveling around with his own personal skate ramp … in the back of an ESCALADE.
Sources close to the rapper tell us, Weezy packed a portable quarter pipe into a trailer, pulled by an Escalade — and according to sources, the tricked out SUV follows the rapper’s tour bus 24/7.
We’re told Wayne rips it whenever he wants — pulling over at random places on the road to squeeze in some much-needed board time … and he’s even hired a pro skater to coach him.
