Lil Wayne’s Skate Squad Gift Him With His First-Ever Signature Skateboard For Turning Pro

Lil Wayne Skate Squad Gift Him With His First Ever Signature Skateboard For Turning Pro

First things first – I hope all you Wayniacs had a great Christmas! A couple of days before Christmas Day this year, a few of Lil Wayne‘s close skateboarding friends gifted him his first-ever signature skateboard for turning pro after 10+ years of him first starting to skate.

While at Paul Rodriguez’s private skate park, Phillip Lopez, Spanish Mike, Torey Pudwill, Keelan Dadd, Emile Murray, Ryan Clarke, Yosef “YoYo” Ratleff, and Satpal Bansal surprised Weezy with the custom skateboard deck that is only available for friends and family only.

Spanish Mike: “10 years in the making for Lil Wayne turning pro. I remember the first time Wayne started skating and seeing how determined he was with it and really reminded me when I first started. Thank you Phil (Wayne Filmer) for bringing this moment to life… we all appreciate you. When you pick up a board and fall in love. I am happy to see my bro turn pro and be apart of the process. Once a skater always a skater!!!”

You can check out a recap of how it all went down in the video that was captured by Spanish Mike after the jump below, as well as view some photos from the session and a close up of the board that has an old picture of Tune and his lyrics on it. Torey also shows off his Young Money tattoo!

Lil Wayne Reveals Why He Partnered With SUPRA For His Own Shoe Line x Sneak Peek Of “DEWeezy” Commercial

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.

In other Wayne news, hit the jump to watch a sneak peek of his “DEWeezy” commercial that he shot on Friday with Chris Robinson.

SUPRA Announces Partnership With Lil Wayne For His Own Footwear Collection

SUPRA Announces Partnership With Lil Wayne For His Own Footwear Collection

Back in February, Lil Wayne hinted that he will design his own shoe line, but he did not give away too many details including which brand the shoes will be released from. Now SUPRA have announced that Weezy has teamed up with them for an exclusive partnership and confirmed that the first collection would be released in early 2013!

SUPRA is proud to announce an exclusive partnership with Lil Wayne. A full collection of new footwear designs, inspired and overseen by Lil Wayne, will be manufactured and distributed by SUPRA. There has been a longstanding respect between both parties: the SUPRA team cites Lil Wayne’s music as a source of inspiration, and Lil Wayne has embraced SUPRA and worn the Skytop since it was first introduced to the market in 2007. The collection of new models will launch in early 2013 at SUPRA retailers worldwide, and suprafootwear.com.

This shows that Tunechi is getting more and more into the fashion business, because we all know he has his own clothing line which is doing very well called TRUKFIT.

Are you looking forward to Wayne‘s own line of shoes with SUPRA

Lil Wayne Will Design & Release His Own Shoe Line

It looks like Lil Wayne is heading more and more into the fashion business. Weezy has already released his TRUKFIT clothing line and now he plans to release his first signature shoe line. VIBE spoke recently with Tune about his first line of kicks, but he didn’t want to give away too many details. Tunechi did say that the shoes will not be released through TRUKFIT, Reebok or Nike and we will get an official announcement in the next few weeks.

VIBE: Do you guys plan on doing Trukfit shoes?
Lil Wayne: That will probably be further way down the line. I do have a shoe coming out soon but it won’t be Trukfit. I have shoe with a well-known company. I just don’t want to say yet because I haven’t dotted the line yet. But it’s done

Can you give us any hints? Is it going to be a major shoe company like Nike or Reebok?
Nah, it’s not a Nike or Reebok, I can tell you that much.

We’ve seen you in Supras heavy…
Uh-oh. Watch out [Laughs].
