Lil Wayne Explains Love Of Skateboarding, Says "Music Is In Trouble"

In the second webisode of his "DEWeezy" series, Lil Wayne details his infatuation with skateboarding.

In the past year, one of Lil Wayne's most publicized past times has been skateboarding.

In the second webisode of his Mountain Dew series "DEWeezy," Lil Wayne spoke on the hobby, and how it is a private experience for him.

"You can ask anyone around here," said Wayne. "Does Wayne let anyone come to skate with him? They'll tell you 'No.'"

Wayne continued, explaining his drive to master the art of skateboarding. "I don't know. It's just something about conquering the whole idea of something difficult as riding a skateboard."

"That's what so great about skating to me. It's about challenge," added Wayne, who injured himself earlier this year skating. "It's about a physical challenge and mental. It's about a challenge in front of you that you actually say to yourself, 'This can't be done. It can't be done by me.'"

"I really found a second love. And music is in trouble. Because I'm in love with this skateboarding shit."

    If any of you had ever stepped a foot on a skateboard you'd know how fucking hard it is. You can pretend to skate and be a poser but he's showing actual progress and there is no way to achieve that without DEDICATION. Yes he might totally suck compared to the pros and i really do believe he shoudl stop making videos but.. keep on skating man..all the people saying u should not skate past a certain age is becuz they've never skated. The ones who criticize are the ones who dont know shit.

    This is pathetic. I bet every one of those dudes watching Wayne BLOW CHUNKS at skateboarding is collecting a check so they can't say how horrible he is to his face. Wayne's trying to recapture his lost childhood because he's been playing this 'gangster' role for so long. It's gotta be tough to constantly have to be in character. Wayne, it's ok to drop the gangster act and still be a rapper. He was probably molested by Birdman when he was younger as well, which accounts for the father/son bond they seem to share, although there is no biological connection at all. Wayne turns 30 this year!! Grow the fuck up. Quit skateboarding and quit drugs and start a new life. An adult life.

    If music's in trouble, then release Ja Rule from prison right now. He will get to work on an album so monumental that Billboard will have to certify it diamond even before it comes out.

    lil wayne is from a paradox called "the block" and is a successful product of it. don't question why that rose, that grew from the concrete has damaged petals, appreciate the fact it even grew.

    Music is in trouble because of you, bitch.

  • Donald Passman

    It's so very amazing that this young man, generates so much attention with everything he says. Lil Flip had the chance to be like this. However, unlike Wayne staying with Baby, Flip turned his back on OG Hump. Lesson is this, stay loyal to who brought you up. Regardless if they owed you 8 million and you only got 2 million, you have to take your lumps.

    Given the music he has given us from 2006 onwards, he can skate on forever. Not a bad thing for music at all.

    Does wayne let anyone coming skating with him? No? Probably because he is completely and utterly useless at it. What a clown.

    • Blatto

      Agreed! Let his lame ass skate right off a cliff somewhere and we will be fine. Why is Mt. Dew wasting time filming a dude struggling on a skateboard when there are plenty of talented kids from all over that get no shine. Letting this dude and his skateboard coach (?) practice until it is worth watching before polluting the airwaves with infant-level skills.

No one can touch him, not even Jay-Z

  • 9gag user

    I like some of the music he puts out and alot of his old shit, and just to clarify, pop music, stands for popular music. I would say that lil watne music is popular, which means alot of folks listen to it. I'm not here to hate or debate this shit. I'm just saying we all have our reason for what we don't like, but take it easy haha. Some of yall talk straight filthy about this nigga like he did something to fuck your life personally. Of recently lil wayne has done some shit that i dont quite agree with, mostly the shit he wears but who cares thats that niggas look not mine. I like specific songs on each of the carter albums, but even though i dont like this "new direction" lil wayne has taken in recent years, I aint gonna knock the nigga for doing his thing, I aint no stan and im not a hater. I just listen to what i like. But let's be serious tho, you telling me that if lil wayne asked you to hang out with the nigga, you say no cause of some songs you didnt like? You trying to tell me that he deserves all the shit some of yall are saying? And last but not least, are you trying to tell me there not one lil wayne song you dont like between the carter 3 and the carter 4? If you say no, get the fuck out of here cause you lying to me, and everybody on this website and most importantly yourself.

      I can't think of a song from the top of my head that ive liked form wayne from 2010 til today. A lot of people consider Hip Hop to be plastic thanks to him and Cash Money Records. I admit he was putting out some decent stuff out when he was on the syrup but since his stop taking drugs hip hop has literally been raped

      Pop music (a term that originally derives from an abbreviation of "popular") is a genre of popular music which originated in its modern form in the 1950s, deriving from rock and roll. The terms popular music and pop music are often used interchangeably, even though the former is a description of music which is popular (and can include any style), whilst the latter is a specific genre containing qualities of mass appeal. As a genre, pop music is very eclectic, often borrowing elements from other styles including urban, dance, rock, Latin and country; nonetheless, there are core elements which define pop. Such include generally short-to-medium length songs, written in a basic format (often the verse-chorus structure), as well as the common employment of repeated choruses, melodic tunes, and catchy hooks. So-called "pure pop" music, such as power pop, features all these elements, utilising electric guitars, drums and bass for instrumentation; in the case of such music, the main goal is usually that of being pleasurable to listen to, rather than having much artistic depth. Pop music is generally thought of as a genre which is commercially recorded and desires to have a mass audience appeal.

    I do find his childish infatuation with skateboarding quite sweet. It's like he's regressing or something...awwww. Lil' Wayne just zipping around on his skateboard upsetting the neighbours, building little ramps on his street and what not.. next he'll be declaring his love for Justin Bieber.

  • So Icy Boi!

    Lil Wayne is my hero, role model, idol. he is a hip hop god, hip hop legend, music icon. he can play on guitar, he is a professional skater and hos words make me cry. I will miss his amazing music. hip hop will be a bad place without him. gonna miss you Weezy. swag
