Lil Wayne recently allowed X Games to follow him for a day to see what he got up to, as well as to also sit down for an interview with him.
In the video, which you can watch below, we can see Tunechi skateboarding with his Sqvad Up team, recording in the studio, and performing live at one of his shows.
For their interview, Weezy spoke about being creative at rapping and skating, his skate crew, how he met them all, how excited he is to be headlining 2019 X Games in Aspen, fans, snowboarding, and more!
On August 24th after appearing on the “First Take” sports talk show, Lil Wayne chopped it up with broadcaster Alyssa Roenigk about skateboarding while at the ESPN headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut.
Weezy talked about how everyone has their own unique way of skating, if the sport has influenced any of his music, and before he left he checked out the wall of X Games gold medals, which is when he was presented with an honorary gold medal.
You can check out a few clips of what went down after the jump below!
Mikey T The Movie Star recently chopped it up with Kidd Kidd about how 50 Cent felt about his feature on Lil Wayne‘s Dedication 5 mixtape and how it was for him linking back up with Tunechi.
The Former Young Money and Sqad Up member also spoke about trying to bring Weezy F Baby and 50 together while he was at the X Games event in Barcelona, Spain back in May. You may remember Tunetweeting about this too:
“Shout out to my slime Kidd Kidd and da homies Fifty and nem out there in Barcelona at da X-Games!! Maaaannnn dats dat sh!t”
Be looking out for Kidd Kidd‘s “Ejected” single featuring Wayne to be released soon!
Above, you can watch some footage of Lil Wayne meeting 13-year-old Alex Midler at the 2012 X Games in Los Angeles, California on July 1st. If you don’t know who Alex is, he is a young student and skater, and is also the reason why Weezy F Baby started to skateboard.
Tunechi has told the story a few times as to why Alex Midler inspired him to start skating, but to cut a long story short, Wayne saw footage of a 9-year-old Alex skateboarding and that is what motivated him and made him want to learn to skate himself.
Also in the clip, Alex invites Weezy to skateboard at his home after the X Games so Tune adds his phone number into Alex‘s mother’s phone. There is no footage of them skating at Midler‘s crib, but it does look like they had some fun because Lil Waynetweeted this:
Man I sk8’d @ lil Alex Midler’s krib today!! Lil homie is a G! & props to Todd,moms,pops,& Indy 4 the luv!
