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.

Birdman Is Directing A 2012 Baller Blockin Movie With The YMCMB Crew

Birdman recently spoke with XXL about shooting a movie this fall with the entire YMCMB gang, which will launch on Cash Money Films. Baby and Slim have already setup Cash Money Records for music, Cash Money Content for books and now they are in the process of setting up Cash Money Films for movies! The #1 Stunna really is racking up that mula!!

The movie will be called Rich Gang and Lil Wayne will be center of it. Birdman has said the film will be like a 2012 version of Cash Money Millionaires’ Baller Blockin’ movie, which was released back in 2000. The Young Money and Cash Money artists won’t have to go to acting school though as Baby wants them all to be themselves.

Lil Wayne Covers Rolling Stone Magazine (2011)

Lil Wayne Covers Rolling Stone Magazine 2011

Lil Wayne covers his first magazine since being released from Rikers in November, 2010. Weezy covers Rolling Stone Magazine, and if you remember back in Feb, 2010 when he was just heading to jail, Weezy also graced the cover then as well. This issue will hit newsstands on January 21st, and you can read a few excerpts below and check out some behind the scenes footage from the shoot after the jump!

“I’d bust a nigga’s ass at Uno,” he told writer Josh Eells. “We gamble for phone time. I’d take nigga’s commissary: Lemme get them cookies, lemme get them chips, get that soup.”

Eventually his cellmates stopped inviting him to games. “They’d be like, ‘Oh, we thought you were asleep,'” Wayne says. “Like you can’t look inside my cell and see that I’m right there! We ain’t got no doors!”

When Wayne sat court-side at a recent Miami Heat/New Orleans Hornets game he was upset that Lebron James and Dwayne Wade never came over to talk to him. “Them niggas never speak to a nigga,” he says. “They don’t chuck me the deuce or nothing. Nigga spent all that money on them fucking tickets… Come holla at me. We sit right by them little bitch-ass niggas. At least come ask me why I’m not rooting for you.”

Lil Wayne Talks About SNL Performance & Upcoming Rolling Stone Cover

Lil Wayne Talks About SNL Performance & Upcoming Rolling Stone Cover

Tunechi left a message earlier on WTY talking about his performance on Saturday Night Live and his upcoming Rolling Stone cover. Weezy also thanks us the fans for making his C4 single, “6 Foot, 7 Foot“, #1 on the iTunes charts.

Hello World & Fellow Martians! I hope you enjoyed my Saturday Night Live performance. I can’t describe what it felt like being back in my element. I wanted to share some behind the scenes photos from my Rolling Stone photo shoot. The shoot was in Miami two weeks ago and just being able to do this type of stuff again is therapeutic. Be sure to pick up the issue when it hits stands. Thank you to the people at Rolling Stone for the opportunity.

PS: Thank you for making 6 foot 7 foot #1 on itunes, you will continue to be #1 in my heart.

In other news, we can be looking forward to Lil Wayne and his Young Money fam performing at BET’s 106 & Park New Year’s Eve Special, and being featured on Chris Brown’s upcoming “Look At Me Now” single, also featuring Busta Rhymes.

Lil Wayne’s “I’m Back!” Letter From Solitary Confinement

Lil Waynes Im Back Letter From Solitary Confinement

What’s poppin?!

By now I’m guessing that you all have heard about my recent relocation to the bing, which is punitive segregation. Basically, no T.V., no radio, no snacks/junkfood, and one phone call a week. This punishment has been handed to me for my earlier MP3 incident. I admit, I fu#ked up and now I must deal with the consequences. As I write this, I only have 25 days left, and it’ll be even less than that when you read this. So honestly, I’m fine. Obviously, this gives me a lot of time to myself and a lot of alone time with my thoughts, which can be creatively dangerous. I do miss being able to hear from my family everyday but once a week will have to suffice. To them, I apologize. I’m still able to receive mail so reading and responding is still a huge part of my day. I’d like to thank everyone that sent me B-Day cards and wishes… that was terrific. You all are wonderful, simply wonderful.

Well anyways, I just wanted you all to know that I’m good and I’ll be good! But at the end of the day, I did it all for music!!! By the way, thanx for downloading the I Am Not A Human Being album. And if you haven’t done so already, please do! And if you have, do so again! When I get out I’m going to put the album in stores and shoot more videos for it. Which songs should I shoot videos to? Also, we will be adding bonus songs and packaging the new Nino Brown DVD with the in store album! You’re welcome.

Talent is best nurtured in solitude… Be home soon!
…Dreaming of being in Greece.

Let not your heart be troubled. – John 14:1

Let us know in the comments which songs you think Weezy should shoot videos for from the I Am Not A Human Being album. Personally, I think Wayne should shoot a visual for “Right Above It” and “That Ain’t Me“. After the jump, you can read a list of “thank you’s” from Mr. Carter to the fans that sent him fanmail.
