Lil Wayne does not seem to care that a certain group of skateboarder don’t like the fact that he is now skateboarding.Â Wayne says it is his new found passion.
In an conversation with MTV News, Weezy says he’s going to continue to pursue his passion of skateboarding, and admits he just “wants to be vital in the [skate] world,” although that same skate world is making it hard for him to get in. One particularly passionate group of skaterboarders against Wayne is the “F*ck Weezy Campaign.”
“There is this skater crew called- I donâ€™t know why Iâ€™m giving them love, but itâ€™s called the â€˜FWC.â€™ Itâ€™s called the â€˜Fuck Weezy Campaignâ€™ and itâ€™s a whole bunch of skaters thatâ€™s just like, ‘we donâ€™t like the fact that Wayne skates period.’ Like ‘stick to doing what you do, donâ€™t join our world, we donâ€™t want you here,’ that type of thing.” Nonetheless, these haters don’t mind using Lil Wayne’s skatepark,Â Â “I guess to them Iâ€™m only good for spending my money opening skate parks for them to come rip up. I have no problem with it. I probably skate better than all of them,”Â he said.
Lil Wayne points out the hypocrisy on the part of the skateboarders, as Tyler, the Creator, is a skater-turned-rapper, but noÂ one is bothered by that.”IÂ ainâ€™t tripping. But I donâ€™t be knocking anybody coming into the music game. I donâ€™t be getting on records saying â€˜man, stick to doing what you was doing. You know what I mean, stick to skateboarding man. Donâ€™t come here Tyler, Iâ€™ll jump on your record.”
