(AllHipHop News) Skateboarding legend Tony Hawk is without a doubt an authority on the sport, so TMZ caught up with Hawk recently to ask him which rappers he thinks are the most talented on the board. The 45-year-old California native shared his thoughts on two performers in particular.
“Honestly, the best skater that I’ve seen who raps is Tyler, The Creator,” said Hawk. “He really can skate. He’s legit.”
When asked specifically about Lil Wayne’s skills as a skater, Hawk does not give a similarly strong endorsement for the Young Money boss.
“I don’t think he picked it up as early. Let’s just put it that way,” states Hawk.
