Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne Covers CCS Skate Magazine

(AllHipHop News) Lil Wayne has teamed with skateboarding product retailer CCS and is featured on the cover of the May catalog.

The rapper is featured on the cover of CCS with skateboarding veterans like Torey Pudwill, Theotis Beasley, Shane O’Neill and Paul Rodriguez.

The catalog/issue also features an interview with Lil Wayne, who is building his own skate park in New Orleans, as part of a new partnership with Mountain Dew.

“It’s so cool just to be allowed to be in their circle, let alone skate with them,” Lil Wayne said. “Just to be allowed to kick it with these guys is cool cause they them dudes—Torey Pudwill, Theotis, Paul Rodriguez, Shane O’Neill…if I can skate with these dudes I can skate with anybody.”

The skaters involved in the shoot were equally enthused to work with Lil Wayne, who impressed them with his enthusiasm and work ethic.

“Wayne has taught me what work ethic is and he’s taught me to continuously search for perfection,” says pro skater Paul Rodriguez said. “That’s just a small part of what I’ve learned from listening to his music and being around him.”

The interview with Lil Wayne was also a landmark feature for CCS, which has been selling skateboarding equipment and lifestyle-related apparel for over 27-years.

“You can tell he (Lil Wayne) is truly hooked on skating, hardly putting his board down the entire shoot and then skating well into the night after we wrapped,” added CCS Brand Director Seamus Deegan. “He’s clearly down for skating and that’s what we’ve always been about at CCS.”

    From bootleg ass Blood to skater, what’s the next popular identity he’s going to dick ride?

  • Why cant this dude act this enthusiastic about hip hop? When your in the so called #1 spot all eyes are on you and your make more of an impact than you want to believe…theres just nothing to respect about what he’s doing…not sitting in his position theres not… Im sorry… calling it hate is a cop out to wanting to be down and follow the trends right along with him…

    Who is Lil Wayne?

  • Most HIP HOP fans today are iggnant dumb wanna be thugs or paper gangstas and dont understand thats not the life. Dude been rapping in this game since he was 14, maybe he tired and need something else to intrigue him. He started the bling rap then stop wearing jewelry. Most of you are afraid to think outside of the box and stuck on B.E.T. Beastie Boys is HIP HOP and they different than most and they sell and before you say anything they just had a number one album last month or two.

    People don’t like what they don’t understand.  I’m not mad at dude for going against the grain of how his “peers” say he should live.  People need to let this dude live and stop trying to live for him. If he wants to skate, let him skate.  If wants to ski, let him ski.  If he wants to hang glide, let him hang glide.  His life is just that….his life.  No one likes being told how to live.  To me, it’s better than him trying to teach this young cats about street life in the hood.  #Props…
