Lil Wayne‘s mixtape series “Dedication” will be probably his last raps for a while. The Young Money leader is taking a break from rapping to skateboard!
In an interview Lil Wayne talked about how he is burnt out of the rap game.
“Being me, I always feel like I ain’t done nothing yet, so I’m always looking for the next thing to do. It does get pretty boring when it comes to just the rapping and all that type of stuff,” he said. “I’ve been doing it since I was 8 and I’m about to be 30 in September.”
Lil Wayne recently expanded his skater clothing line TRUKFIT to Macy’s stores.
“I picked up the skateboard and I thought it’d be a hobby and what happened is it’s a lifestyle,” he said. “You have to be fully committed because its super scary [Wayne broke his clavicle earlier this year]. In order to be fully committed you have to live that lifestyle. Like the young kids say, ‘You have to be about that life.’ It’s kind of putting rap on the back burner.”
“I think I deserve that,” he continued. “I think fans deserve a little-to-no Wayne. I’ve been everywhere. I’ve been out on everybody’s song. I’m still on everybody’s song. My artists have been doing awesome. I believe the fans deserve some peace from me. So I’ll be on my skateboard in the meantime.”
Watch out Tony Hawk!
Lil Wayne’s “Dedication 4” mixtape will be out on August 15th.
