Lil Wayne Meets The Person Who Influenced Him To Skate, Alex Midler [Video]

Above, you can watch some footage of Lil Wayne meeting 13-year-old Alex Midler at the 2012 X Games in Los Angeles, California on July 1st. If you don’t know who Alex is, he is a young student and skater, and is also the reason why Weezy F Baby started to skateboard.

Tunechi has told the story a few times as to why Alex Midler inspired him to start skating, but to cut a long story short, Wayne saw footage of a 9-year-old Alex skateboarding and that is what motivated him and made him want to learn to skate himself.

Also in the clip, Alex invites Weezy to skateboard at his home after the X Games so Tune adds his phone number into Alex‘s mother’s phone. There is no footage of them skating at Midler‘s crib, but it does look like they had some fun because Lil Wayne tweeted this:

Man I sk8’d @ lil Alex Midler’s krib today!! Lil homie is a G! & props to Todd,moms,pops,& Indy 4 the luv!

While attending the 2012 X Games in Los Angeles on Sunday, Lil Wayne participated in a live online chat with his fans and answered just over 40 questions.

Some of the questions that were submitted to Weezy were useful and interesting, but there were a few people who wasted a good opportunity to ask Tune a good question and instead asked dumb questions such as “how old are you?“.

The two highlights from this interview are that Tunechi said he will record more collaborations with Eminem in the future and Tha Carter V will most likely drop next year. You can read the full chat with Wayne and his fans below:
