Lil Wayne Calls Rap ‘Boring,’ Hops On Skateboarding Instead.I am quite sure the fans deserve some peace from me, so I’ll be on my skateboard in the meantime,’ Weezy tells DJ Drama during a radio interview.
These days it will be very hard for you to find Lil Wayne without a skateboard, but could it be that the Young Money Cash Money Billionaire affiliated rapper is hanging up the microphone in exchange for the deck? For the time being, maybe yes.
Lil Wayne is kinda putting rap on the backseat, that’s all. Rap’s taking a backseat to skating, that’s all,” Weezy told DJ Drama when he phoned into his radio show on Atlanta’s Hot 107.9 on Wednesday.

“I kinda feel like I deserve that, I feel like the fans deserve a little No Wayne. I’ve been everywhere, man. I’ve been out on everybody’s song, I’m still on everybody’s song,” Tunechi continued. “My artists are doing awesome; I believe the fans deserve some peace from me, so I’ll be on my skateboard in the meantime.”
Wayne did confirm that his Dedication 4 mixtape with Drama would be dropping in the middle of August, but he didn’t elaborate on any of his other expected musical projects. At the top of June, YMCMB rap Champ dropped “My Homies Still,” the first single off, of “I Am Not a Human Being II”, which is said to be dropping later this year, though no release date has been set yet.
Since he was a teen, Lil Wayne has released music at a giddying pace, whether solo albums, LPs with his former group the Hot Boys or his plethora of mixtapes, so can you really blame him? “Yeah, it does get pretty boring when it comes to the rapping and that kinda stuff. I’ve done so much of it,” he said. “I’ve been doing’ it since I was 8. I’m about to be 30 in September and I’m still rapping’. So I kinda feel like I’m getting old.”
Skating provides a new challenge for the multi-platinum rap star.Tunechi has become so inflamed by the love of his skateboard that he even has skating ramps in the microphone booth where he records. “What happened was I picked up the skateboard and it started being a hobby and what happened is it’s a lifestyle,” he said. “You have to be fully committed because it’s super-scary, and in order to be fully committed, you have to live that lifestyle.”
