Lil Wayne's attention grabbing fashion has ranged from leopard print skintight pants to shirtless ensembles complete with enough bling to light a city. Now Weezy will hone his fashion expertise and craft a signature brand of kicks.
"It's not a Nike or Reebok, I can tell you that much," Wayne told VIBE about the shoe.
The rapper, whose fashion sense has always aired on the side of intriguing, is pulling a Kanye and deepening his connection to the fashion world. His Trukfit brand has already took the streetwear market by storm, and now Young Money will branch out from the already established brand with a new famed company.
"I do have a shoe coming out soon but it won't be Trukfit. I have a shoe with a well-known company. I just don't want to say yet because I haven't dotted the line yet," he said. "But it's done."
Add this to the other projects Wayne has going on, and he's turning himself into quite the multi-platform mogul. He just dropped his first single off Tha Carter IV (which sold nearly a million copies in its debut week in September), titled " Mirror" and featuring Bruno Mars, at the end of January, and Cash Money CEO Birdman revealed a few days before that that Wayne's next album, I Am Not A Human Being 2, would be out before the summer. Wayne's even turned to writing; earlier this year it was revealed that his prison memoir, "Gone Til November," would be published this coming November 28 by Grand Central Publishing.
