Lil Wayne Says Hes Putting Rap On The Backburner For Skateboarding
 

 

[video - click to view]


Lil Wayne is taking his love of skateboarding one step further. During an interview with DJ Drama, Weezy explained that hes putting Rap on the backburner so that he can entertain his love of skating, justifying his decision by stating that his fans deserve some peace from me.

I picked up the skateboard and I thought it would be a hobby, but its a lifestyle. You have to be fully committed. In order to be fully committed, you have to live that lifestyle. What these young kids say right now, you have to be about that life. I guess Im about that life, he said. Its kinda of putting rap on the backburner, thats all. Rap is a taking backseat to skating. Thats alright. But I kind of feel I deserve that. I think fans deserve some peace from me.

But before he dials down his output, the Young Money rapper plans on releasing his Dedication 4 mixtape, for which hes rapped over beats including I Dont Like, Ca$hin Out and Burn. For Wayne, his relative quietude in the game stemmed from his boredom with Rap.

I just felt like it was time. I got bored, he said of recording Dedication 4. Yeah, I mean, being me, I always feel like I aint done nothing yet, so Im always looking for the next thing to do. But other than that, it does get pretty boring when it comes to the rapping and stuff. Ive done so much of it, Ive been doing it since I was eight. Im going to be 30 in September, and Im still rapping. So I kind of feel like Im getting old.

Wayne my homie but contradicts himself every other paragraph. Rap is taking a back seat to skatingboarding but you're bored w/ rap so you did a mixtape?

Mixtape better be on some Drought, SQ, Prefix type stuff or he's done for.

Happy for Wayne, man. He sounds clear minded in this interview. In his old interviews before jail the n*gga was sounding lost. Do your thing, Wayne!

If anything he's the exact opposite of a poser at this point cause he's stayed committed to it, and is even going as far as to put his career on the back burner to get better.
