Lil Wayne Launches TRUKFIT Clothing Line at Macy’s
Rapper Lil Wayne skated into Macy’s department store at the Beverly Hills Center in Los Angeles and launched his new skater apparel collection TRUKFIT (The Reason You Kill For It). The clothing line combines Weezy’s passion for skateboarding and his unique clothing style.
In a few pics from the event on Friday (June 1), you can see Weezy brought out pro skateboarder Steve Williams who was there to introduce his line with DGK. At the in-store appearance, Tunechi was dressed in an orange-colored TRUKFIT T-shirt, tiger-striped sweatpants, orange-and-black colored Nike dunks and a black cap. He took pictures with the media while sucking on a lollipop. It looks as if Weezy is taking his hobby to whole new business level.
Meanwhile, Wayne is still feeling a little salty about being denied courtside tickets to an Oklahoma City Thunder playoff game on May 31. Apparently, when the Young Money honcho try to buy premium tickets to the game he was snubbed. When Thunder b-ballers Kevin Durant and James Harden heard about Wayne’s plight, they offered him courtside tickets to Game 4 of the West Conference Finals.
But Wayne has refused their offer telling the Associated Press (via NewsOK) that he feels “unwanted” at the OKC venue. “That’s not the point, though,” he says of the ticket gesture from Durant and Harden. “It’s the players stepping up but of course the players aren’t white. I don’t want to be sitting there on behalf of you and I’m sitting next to a (person) that’s like ‘I don’t want this (guy) sitting next to me.’ F— you … I’m in Forbes.”
“The players want me there, I don’t want to feel — I’m going to still feel unwanted,” he adds.
While his manager suggests that Wayne never attend a game at the OKC arena, the ‘My Homies Still‘ rapper might change his mind in the future. “I never say never,” Wayne quips.
