Lil Wayne Speaks On TRUKFIT Brand Name & Clothing Line [Video]

Last week, Lil Wayne and Stevie Williams spoke to MTV while launching their TRUKFIT and DGK apparel at Macy’s in Los Angeles. Weezy chatted about his clothing line and where the name of the brand comes from.

“There was a truck that would come around the neighborhood for the less-fortunate people that can’t go to those stores, and he would have those same items — those Polos, those Tommys — for less,” Tunechi explained. “If you were known to have that outfit, then it was not called an ‘outfit,’ it was called a ‘truck fit.'”

“Me and Lil Wayne are friends. It’s not collaborated, but it’s a collaborated effort between all three brands: DGK, TRUKFIT and Macy’s. It’s a good thing.”
