Lil Wayne Reveals If He Is A Street Or Vert Skater, How He Learned To Fall On A Skateboard & More

Lil Wayne chopped it up with American Eagle, who he has just released his new clothing line with, while on the rooftop of New Design High School in Manhattan on July 15th to discuss all about skateboarding.

During their conversation, Wayne spoke on when he first started skating, what inspired him, the first trick he learned, what beginners must learn when starting to skate, if he is a street or vert skater, learning to fall, his favorite area for skate parks, and what gets him excited about skate parks.

The Best Rapper Alive also mentioned what you should not do when visiting a skate park for the first time, what he wears for his skate sessions, if he has music or no music playing in the background when skating, and lists a few legends of the skateboarding culture that everyone should learn from. You can check it all out in the video after the jump below!

    • FoFoBullDogg

      What?! You lie!

  • Therealisback

    Where the fuck is the music this is crazy carter 5 was so long ago and 90% of those songs was old. For someone who alleges to be in the studio 16 hours+ every day to drop no music is mind blowing. Just drop those mixtapes and call them anything like thug, future, dolph, or any of them guys those guys are not even good compared to Wayne and they do it.. it’s like his team is just collecting Wayne music and hoping he dies so they can profit for years

    • Slime Dwise

      16 hours my ass. Wayne be lying like shit.

      That nigga spend most his time at clubs

        • Slime Dwise

          That nigga at LIV everyday.

          • kushxchevys

            That’s a strip club and that’s probably the only club he hits up when he really feels like clubbing, weezy dobt like going out and turning up. That’s a known fact if he was at liv allday he would be posted up on the liv instagram account and shit like that

    • TRUW

    • Dr Carter

      True

    • MuddyCupSavage

      Hasn’t it been a said Wayne’s got terabytes of unreleased music on hard drives and CD’s and half of it just ends up getting deleted. I’m sure he has more than enough to put out but just doesn’t wanna release it 🤷🏾‍♂️

  • Slime Dwise

    If he learned how to fall then why he still skate like he scared of falling?

    That the main thing holding him back tbh

    • Swipz

      What do you mean by that? Like any artist that blew up after 2009? Or rappers that actually started rapping after 2009?

  • BRAZY WRLD #999 #24&2

    2019 You have Lil Wayne the GOAT doing a Rare Interview. You can ask him about anything Music, Life, his Hair, current Rap and you ask him about skating. Then its like these Interviewers just watch old interviews and just ask him the same shit like they cant be serious with this corny shit.

    • Turtis

      I think they probably give them a list of approved topics. Thing slike Birdman, Label situation, maybe even new music, would not be approved topics for an interview with American eagle.

      • BRAZY WRLD #999 #24&2

        Yea these interviews 100% scripted but he’s a rapper if he wasnt skating what would they ask him.

        • Namrah Bontang

          Why did u fall off

          • BRAZY WRLD #999 #24&2

            How you been in the game 20+ years still out Rapping everybody and outselling everybody except the nigga you signed?

      Dont cry

    • Wordplay 187

      Don’t cry’s hook is forced to me so Vizine

      • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

        Vizine has some forced lines and flows. For example “I’m the GOAT, no goatee”

        But yeah they are thematically similar

        • Wordplay 187

          Yeah but even with his fast forced flow at the end he managed to kill it. Don’t cry was boring and X’s hook just didn’t do shit for me, however DC was mixed better.
