Lil Wayne Explains Concept Behind New Project Called “Bread Over Bed” [Video]

DJ Scoob Doo, who is Lil Wayne‘s videographer aka the guy who stole everyone’s money from pre-ordering The Nino Brown Story 3 DVD a few years back, will launch a new website next week showing exclusive footage of Weezy working, so we can all witness his amazing work ethic that I am sure most of us already know about. The project is called “Bread Over Bed” and in the clip above, Tunechi talks about the concept behind it.

“There’s no quit, there’s no stopping, there’s no such thing as a break and the best part about it is there’s no reason why, the reason is you. The reason why I don’t stop is because of me, the reason why I don’t sleep is because of me, the reason why I don’t take breaks is because of me. I don’t have to. It’s natural.”

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.”
