Like itís not that hard. I feel like if Iíd started at whatever age he did and had a bunch of pros wanting to hang with me Iíd at least figure those out.

I've seen literal children force kickflips after a day or two, no reason why he couldn't land one. Maybe he's too busy pumping out mediocre music and being rich. Maybe he just used skateboarding as a marketing gimmick? I know that's NEVER been done before by ANY celebrity.

Iím on the boat where I think kickflips are a bit hard to learn. First flip trick for most people; a different game and bigger consequence if you miss than a shuv or 180 type of trick. It took me some time to figure it out rolling.

My guess is that he probably doesnít skate as much as he wants to and when he does, he wants to do tricks he already knows

Lil Wayneís skateboarding style and trick selection is so bad itís to the point where itís actually amazing.  Last clip I watched of him he boardslide a foot and a half high flat-down rail without popping his tail.  It was like some sort of unintentional pressure/slappy boardslide that I couldnít replicate if I tried for hours.

Cos he still drops homophobic slurs into his shitty music.
Now, we used to say we put on our tights to put on the world. So I don't think it tarnishes the image at all.

There I go thinking the only thing lil Wayne and I had in common was wanting to clap nickiís cheeks and being kinda scared of C-Muder.
He has the exact same look as my stepbrother, who I DO NOT respect.

Iíd rather see him no comply flip like maybe off a parking block on a hubba of into an a frame.

I bet if I skated his park I could show him some killer shit better than a rocket kickflip

I bet heís like me. Fakie heels. Thatís my sting one. Half cab heel with in 3.

I throw down all switch and shit. Bone the fuck out of it.

Lil Wayne should be doing non compliance combos. It fits the style.

Back side flip might also be way cooler too. That might be worth it.

He is good. I have the Milli single with the instrumental version. One of my favorite records. I used to mash up that with helmetís unsung.

Super heavy shit was a perfect fit.

If I learnt to kickflip at 35 years old, having not skated for 12 years... any skateboarder can.

It's more of a psychological block IMO. When I was a teenager I pretty much convinced myself I couldn't and never would learn them- approached it with a different mindset in my 30s and suddenly there it was.
