Lil Wayne Reveals Why He Partnered With SUPRA For His Own Shoe Line x Sneak Peek Of “DEWeezy” Commercial

Lil Wayne debuted his TRUKFIT clothing line and SUPRA skate shoes collection at the annual Magic Convention yesterday in Las Vegas, Nevada. MTV managed to get an interview with Weezy at the event to talk about why he decided to partner with SUPRA for his own shoe line.

“I was just rocking ’em when I was skating and stuff and when I got real cool with the homey Stevie Williams, it was like a plug from him. It was just a mutual respect on each end so it was just bound to happen.”

“I look at the reality and the facts of it, like I been rocking this shoe before I even knew what it was. So for me to start skating and for these shoe lines to start coming at me like, ‘Hey, we wanna give you your own skate shoe,’ it was only right for me to mess with the people I been messing with even before they were a skate shoe.”

The SUPRA shoes that Tune designed were originally supposed to drop in early 2013, but they will now be released in stores on May 1st, 2013.

In other Wayne news, hit the jump to watch a sneak peek of his “DEWeezy” commercial that he shot on Friday with Chris Robinson.

Lil Wayne Talks About Why He Started Skating Over A Year Ago & Shoots DEWeezy Commercial

Check out episode 2 of Lil Wayne‘s “DEWeezy” series above were you can view footage of him skating and talking about why he loves his hobby lifestyle so much. You can also watch episode 1 after the jump that includes Paul Rodriguez introducing the Mountain Dew skateboard team and then they all go watching Weezy at his SXSW concert in Austin, Texas on March 15th.

I wasn’t going to post these videos on the blog, because episode 1 doesn’t include any new footage of Wayne, but episode 2 does. So it looks like I’ll be posting each episode on this site from now on and episode 3, which will be released next week, includes Tune showing off his injuries from skating.

Also after the jump, you can view some photos of Tunechi shooting a commercial for “DEWeezy” that is being directed by Chris Robinson.
