On August 20th, Lil Wayne attended, skated with his skater friends and performed live at his TRUKFIT Magic Party that took place at One Of A Kind nightclub in Las Vegas, Nevada. Tyga, Boo, T@, DJ Scoob Doo, Mack Maine, Detail, Karrine Steffans aka Superhead, and DJ Stevie J can all be seen chilling and performing with Weezy.
After the jump, you can watch some footage of Tune performing “HYFR (Hell Ya Fuckin’ Right)” at the party, and view lots and lots of pictures!
5Boro professional skater Willy Akers takes Lil Wayne‘s “strip club loot” after he dropped in off the roof of Wayne‘s Miami crib onto a skating ramp. You can watch the drop in above and if you didn’t already know, Weezy recently got the 5Boro logo tattooed on his face.
In related news, Tune spoke to VIBE about his new TRUKFIT clothing line and what inspired him to come up with the designs. Read the short interview below:
Check out some behind the scenes footage above from Bow Wow‘s “Sweat” video shoot featuring Lil Wayne, courtesy of Derick G. You can view some behind the scenes photos from on set here, and Birdman and Detail can be seen making cameos.
In other Weezy news, Tha Carter IV recently went double platinum, which means that Tunechi has sold over 2 million copies of C4 since it was released 3 months ago. Amazing!
Hit the jump to view some behind the scenes footage from Drake‘s “The Motto” video shoot featuring Wayne and Tyga that was shot in the San Francisco Bay Area, and view some photos of Tune at DJ Khaled‘s birthday bash at Mansion Nightclub in Miami, Florida.
This 30 minute video is a must watch for everyone! Lil Wayne gets deep and personal talking about Steve Jobs’ death, why he drank syrup, why he tattooed his whole body, why he bought a Bugatti, why he learned how to play a guitar and put out a rock album, and why he learned how to skateboard. Tune also shows us a little bit of his mansion, starts to skateboard on his roof, and tells us about how he was considered a “Chief Blood” in Rikers Island.
I think we can all agree that this is rare from Weezy and we don’t normally get anything like this from him, but hopefully Wayne will carry on releasing these vlogs for us.
Now before some of you start saying this blog post is full of old news, I’m aware of that. I just thought that some of this news wasn’t worth its own post on LilWayneHQ, so this is why I’m doing a post with all of the news in one!
Anyways, Lil Wayne has picked up another great achievement in his music career, by being placed in the 2012 Guinness Book Of World Records for having the most US Hot 100 hits. Over the past 10 years, Weezy has had over 60 tracks that made the Hot 100 chart. Tunechi was previously inducted into the Guinness Book Of World Records for having the most “likes” on Facebook in 24 hours.
In other Wayne news, I have recently added all of the lyrics to his latest album, Tha Carter IV. You can check the lyrics out here (I also included the bonus songs). Talking about C4, the album sold 116,817 copies in its 3rd week of being released. This means that the total sales for the album are around: 1,300,000.
