Lil Wayne is taking a break from his rap career…to skateboard.
In a recent interview with Atlanta’s Hot 107.9, Wayne explains why he might need some time away from the world of rap:
“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. 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. 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.”
Before Lil Wayne skates away, he will release his next mixtape The Dedication 4 on August 15.Tweet
