Lil Wayne Laughs at the Skateboarding Haters

When Lil Wayne announced last year that he’s taken up skateboarding, many thought it would only be a hobby for him. But Weezy has been very serious about his newfound passion. Nevertheless, the skateboarding haters think he should just quit the sport and stick to rapping.

The detractors have gone so far as to launch a skate crew called “F— Weezy Campaign” to encourage the ‘No Worries’ rapper to stop skateboarding. No dice.

Since pursuing the sport of skateboarding, Wayne has launched his skateboard-inspired apparel line Trukfit and a DEWeezy campaign that recently help opened a skate park in New Orleans. As for the haters, Tunechi is having the last laugh on them.

“It’s a whole bunch of skaters that’s just like, ‘we don’t like the fact that Wayne skates period.’ Like, ‘stick to doing what you do, don’t join our world, we don’t want you here,’ that type of thing,” he explains to MTV’s RapFix. “I guess to them I’m only good for spending my money opening skate parks for them to come rip up. I have no problem with it. I probably skate better than all of them.”

How ironic is that? The haters are having fun skating in the same skate park that Wayne built for them. The “FWC” crew should stop the hating and start congratulating — Weezy is serious about the sport.

Meanwhile, Wayne, who is known for being a trendsetter, doesn’t want to take credit for the “Double Cup” trend of “sippin’ syrup,” which is a drug concoction of codeine and promethazine. He gives that credit to the late Pimp C of UGK fame, who died five years ago from a deadly combination of syrup and his sleep apnea condition. “I did it ’cause Pimp C did it [first], flat out,” he says. “All I listen to all day is UGK. Everybody know that. Everybody know Pimp C, to me … I mean, you know, next to God and my mama and my kids, man, it’s Pimp C.”

However, Wayne condemns being associated with the drug trend. “I just hate the fact that I took so much flak for it, man, like I was the poster boy for that,” he says. “When I went to jail like 75 percent of my letters from fans was like ‘I’m really glad you’re in there because I’m just really glad you get to not be on’ … I’m like how do you know what I was on?”
