(AllHipHop News) Dwayne "Lil Wayne" Carter Jr. is the latest musician to jump into the cannabis industry. Weezy's GKUA Ultra Premium is a line of high-potency products with strains such as Hollygrove and Uproar.
“I used to just want to get high, now I smoke to get inspired,” Lil Wayne is quoted saying in Forbes. “With GKUA, I’m sharing a feeling that I love.”
GKUA will be available at select Los Angeles dispensaries with plans to roll out in the entire state of California in 2020. A “GKUA VIP Party” featuring Lil Wayne and other performers is expected to take place in LA next year as well.
The Young Money captain joins Drake, Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dogg, Jim Jones, The Game, John Legend, Ray J, and other artists as marijuana businessmen. Christopher "The Notorious B.I.G." Wallace's son CJ Wallace also launched the Frank White cannabis brand earlier this year.
