I'm over people deciding if he should be into skateboarding or not.  I can hate on him all day long for being a terrible rapper, but none of that matters since he announced he's building a park in New Orleans (hope he has someone decent design it!)

For real though- the only thing I took from this video is that he made me think of Mr. Rogers when he put on the glasses and the hat.  The product placement is hilarious too.

I noticed this like fifteen minutes ago:

In the little intro for "SportsCenter" on Dedication 2 (2006), Wayne talks about how he loves sports, and does not even mention skateboarding (hockey is mentioned).

I want to be clear in saying, I am not mad at Lil' Wayne for skateboarding, people who have skated with him all say he seems to genuinely love it.  However, his claim that he has been skating since age 14 or whatever he said is clearly bullshit.

Anyone who has seen him on the board can glean that fact though.

So is Steve Rodriguez going to give him a guest board to boost 5boro sales? That seems likely, since "skateboarding is about marketing."

I was actually just talking about this with my brother its hard to talk shit on him skating. He could be doing anything with all his money and hes building parks and skating. I dont like his music at all but im hyped hes actively trying to skate.

No because he is "ruining" skateboard and all that. He still builds parks , if someone is ruining skating is Wayne and suddenly he is alright becuase he is building a park.

Little Wayne is right on track to pull a reverse jereme rogers. I would love to see him quit rapping start a skating. He could make a skate company and turn himselff pro.  It would be a win win, no more shit music and hiarious footy.

i really don't understand this.  rob worked his way from skateboarder and became a corporation.  wayne is a corporation trying to come off as a skateboarder.
as i said before i don't hate wayne; but i don't know if i fully trust his intentions.  at least we know what robs goals are.  there is at least a 50 percent chance that wayne is simply looking to diversify his portfolio.
 i guess to put succinctly-  rob is at our table trying to put more food on our plate, while wayne is a passerby who happened to smell our bomb-ass fishsticks and is now gunning for our lunch

i had no problem with dude skating. good for him to try some shit in his down time. now with this clothing company he's pulling funds from clothing companies that deserve to see some money. he can push around all he wants, but when he starting dipping into the industry shit changed. and yeah, the new overly passionate supporter is always corny.

its just sick to watch someone whos just found skating for the first time and is obviously passionate, you remember when you first started skating I fell in love. Total obsession, its all I talked about with anyone its all I thought about and I skated 10 hours a day what I would give to have that feeling of exitment back.

Thought you maintained that feeling with your masturbatory Batman posts.

Say what you want man but Wayne isn't a 'terrible' rapper... If you don't like his style or you aren't into hip-hop then cool - I'm into mostly stuff that isn't hip-hop BUT that boy can rap and that's a fact.

Uh, yeah, actually I can totally say that.  It's way past not liking someone's style.  Ever since he started going off the top of his head and not writing shit down it's been beyond shitty.  People like his recent shit is simply because it's his.  It's analogous to the Emperor's New Clothes.

eyery newbie is a overly passionate supporter if youre not youll probablly drop skating pretty quick. This is actually pretty good for the industry when you think about it, the number of fresh faces that will join because of his influence is only good.

That quote was pretty on point... buuuut a park built is a park built, and that's great no matter who builds it. I'm not a Dyrdek fan, and I'm definitely not a Wayne fan. But Steve Rodriguez probably respects the fuck out of them.

You guys are full on retarded. He makes tens of millions of dollars a year from rapping, you really think he would invest all this time to get some chump change from your broke asses? He could record ten features in an hour and he would make more off that than he would off skateboarding in a year. Use your brain

kinda. waynes been goin off the top for most of his career now. what it really is is that lazy ass hashtag flow, and the fact that mainstream america will hear the lamest lines and immediately dickride it. dudes just being lazy with his music really. he has a high QUANTITY but its taking away from his QUALITY. if you look at his career and music catalog as a whole, dudes a rap legend. if you look at wayne from the past 4-5 years however, he's seeming more and more like a "has been". at least to me anyway
