Lil Wayne Reveals Why His Deal With SUPRA Went Wrong During Sneaker Shopping

Lil Wayne, who was rocking a pair of Prada Camouflage Combat Boots, recently went “Sneaker Shopping” with Joe La Puma at Neiman Marcus in Bal Harbour, Florida for the Season 10 finale of their series.

During their trip, Wayne recalled drawing the Nike “swoosh” and the Adidas “three stripes” on folders back when he was in school, what he wore in Juvenile‘s “I Got That Fire” music video back in 1999, and how his deal with SUPRA in 2012 got messed up because they didn’t want to do what he envisioned (they wanted something to rival Kanye West‘s Yeezy shoe).

Before spending $7773.55 on sneakers, Weezy spoke on his favorite sneakers to skate in, Kendrick Lamar remembering him rocking the Reebok Workout Low shoes when he signed his Reebok deal, deciding what to wear for court-side NBA games, Drake giving him exclusive Jordans, his stylist Marisa Flores laying out between 100-200 pairs of shoes each night for his shows, TRUKFIT, and more.

You can check all of this go down in the video after the jump below. Tunechi also revealed he has not been to a shopping mall in over 15 years! Did you like the Dior sandals, Balenciaga trainers, Versace slippers, and Dolce & Gabbana sneakers that Tune picked out to buy?

Lil Wayne Talks Funeral Album, New Generation Rappers, Working With American Eagle & More

Pierce Simpson from Complex sat down with Lil Wayne for a one on one interview to promote his new Young Money clothing line with American Eagle, which Cortez Bryant first told us about last month before we then saw a preview of the collection earlier this month.

During their conversation, which you can watch below, Wayne also spoke on what his favorite piece from his new fashion line is, being shocked that American Eagle wanted to work with him, new generation rappers, TRUKFIT, how the last 18 months of his life have been, his upcoming Funeral album, and more.

While discussing Funeral, Tunechi says Tez Poe has a release date for the project, but he doesn’t want to announce it as of right now and so it’s “coming soon”. Tune even explained that he never records music for a specific album; he just records a bunch of songs and lets Tez pick which ones will appear on the certain project. It is very “rare” Weezy is in the “I’m about to go record this album” mode as it has only ever happened once, which was when he was locked up in jail!
