Lil Wayne has shared a couple of hilarious stories involving rappers who have tried in the past to keep up with him in the skatepark.

In a new feature for Interview Magazine published on Thursday (June 15), Weezy sat down with skateboard legend Tony Hawk to discuss all things skating.

At one point during the chat, the New Orleans rapper explained that he had a quarterpipe installed in the parking lot of the Hit Factory studio he records at in Miami, and how during one session, Meek Mill made a fool of himself trying to drop in.

“I couldn’t stop Meek Mill, though. I had a quarter pipe in Miami in the parking lot of a studio called the Hit Factory,” Wayne said. “A lot of artists record there, so when they would pull up, they’d be like, ‘What is that?’ Some of them don’t know what a quarter pipe is.

“So he stood at the top, skateboard ready, lifted up like he’s about to drop in. I’m like, ‘Please don’t, man.’ He’s like, ‘Nah, man. I ride bikes all day. This can’t be nothing.’ I’m like, ‘It’s not the same.’ And of course, he totally fell and taught himself a lesson about that. I tried to stop him.”

Lil Wayne won’t even let Drake pick up a skateboard when they’re together because the 6 God is so injury-prone.

“Drake has been on the scene at a park with a skateboard in his hand, and we’ve all quickly stopped him, like, ‘Don’t even attempt it,’ because he’s a very clumsy guy,” Lil Wayne explained. “Drake hurts himself by just performing, and he’ll get real injuries. He’ll be on crutches the next day, and you be like, ‘Wait, all you did was fall onstage, right?’”

Weezy continued: “So he’s one of those guys. But he plays basketball a lot, so I think that has a lot to do with why he gets hurt. But as far as him on the board and me trying to get him to skate? No.”

Wayne started skating when he was 29 years old and still has a deep passion for the hobby running through his veins over a decade later.


Another interesting anecdote came up when Tony Hawk remembered meeting DMX at an event in Las Vegas around 2003, which prompted Wayne to think back to hanging with the late Yonkers rapper on the 2000 Cash Money/Ruff Ryders joint tour.

“X an OG as far as the game goes, but to me personally — one of our biggest tours when I was with Cash Money was the Cash Money/Ruff Ryders tour,” Lil Wayne added.

“We toured for what felt like half my damn life. It was the perfect Hip Hop tour because both companies had a shitload of artists, so there was no need for opening acts. I met X then. I had to be every bit of 16 or 17 years old. Those were the days, man.”
