An Art Student Helped Pay Her University Fees By Making A Custom Necklace For Lil Wayne

An Art Student Helped Pay Her University Fees By Making A Custom Necklace For Lil Wayne

Since his 36th birthday, Lil Wayne has been spotted rocking a new custom necklace with an 18-carat yellow-gold pendant in the shape of his face on it.

It turns out that this pendant, which features 2 white diamonds for Wayne‘s tear drop face tattoos, was gifted to him for his birthday from a close friend. You can get a better look at the chain after the jump below.

A 29-year-old art student named Joy Bonfield-Colombara was struggling to pay her £9,500.00-a-year course at the Royal College Of Art university in London, England and considered on dropping out until she received an e-mail from one of Weezy‘s close friends.

Joy revealed to the BBC that she had 2 – 3 weeks to create the pendant in time for Tunechi‘s birthday and after selling it to Tune‘s friend for “thousands” of pounds, the money she earned was used to help pay a “chunk” of her course fees so she could carry on at university! What are your thoughts on the piece?

Lil Wayne Presented With His Very Own Customized Hoverboard

While backstage at the “Hot For The Holidays” concert in Newark, New Jersey on December 5th, Lil Wayne was presented with his very own customized hoverboard.

I’m not exactly sure that “hoverboard” is the official name for this new digital trend, which I’m sure you’re all familiar with as it has got really popular this year, because I’ve also seen them called “skywalkers”, “self balancing boards”, “foot scooters”, and “moonwalkers”.

You can check out a closer look of Weezy‘s custom hoverboard after the jump below! What do you think of it?

REBEL8 Streetwear Co. Laces Lil Wayne With Custom New Era Cap

REBEL8 Streetwear Co Laces Lil Wayne With Custom New Era Cap

Bay Area-based streetwear company, REBEL8, has a big fan … and his name is Lil Wayne. So, when Weezy hit them asking for some more gear, they blessed him with a custom, one-of-a-kind R8 fitted.

“Although REBEL8 has been grinding it out for over six years, we are still a very small clothing label,” Joshy D., REBEL8 co-founder, told BallerStatus.com. “When someone of such fame and popularity as Lil Wayne shows interest in the REBEL8 brand, it’s just a beautiful thing. Someone in the top 1% reaching down and picking our brand to represent and wear feels f***ing amazing.”

The company took an off-the-shelf R8 Logo New Era cap and applied one of Mike Giant’s signature fonts under the brim of the cap, reading “Young Money”, the rapper’s label, which he’s been rocking at shows on his recent tour.

Joshy D. also made it clear, the company has never paid for a celebrity endorsement, so Weezy’s interest in the brand is all his own.

“When Lil Wayne rocks REBEL8, it shows me that one of the biggest artists in the world who can afford any brand out there, and gets approached by hundreds to be endorsed, genuinely loves it,” he added. “We have never paid any celeb or ANYONE for that matter to wear REBEL8. Our growth and success is completely organic. Lil Wayne chose us, not the other way around.”
