Lil Wayne Unveils His First Clothing Line, ‘Trukfit’
The clothes will be carried in Zumiez stores and online and are skater-themed, because Lil Wayne loves skateboarding. He talked about his love of the sport with the Wall Street Journal, of course.
WSJ: How has learning to skateboard affected your day-to-day life?
LW: I learned that, first of all, it isn’t a hobby or a sport — it’s a lifestyle. Just by skating, it affects your life, if you really get into it. It affected my day-to-day living because I wanna live like a skater; I wanna be like a skater. I wanna be a skater.
How are you defining skater?
Rad, risky, no-holds-barred. And one thing about a skater: they never quit. They bust their ass until they get what they’re trying to get. So a skater, to sum it up, is awesome.
As for the name, MTV’s Rapfix blog reports:
While on stage, Wayne explained the name “Trukfit” telling fans that as a kid he’d grab new gear from the back of a clothing booster truck.
“When a person could spot a fake, they’d be like ‘you got on the truck fit,’” he said, “So now it’s cool to have on the Truckfit, ya dig!”
Sadly, the collection does not include jeggings. Yet.
