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.
