“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.
