lil wayne*Lil Wayne is putting down the mic for a little while to explore his other passion, skateboarding.

The raspy voiced artist is comfortable to push a little harder to perfect his hobby.

“I picked up the skateboard, and I thought it’d be a hobby, but it’s a lifestyle. You have to be fully committed because it’s super-scary. In order to be fully committed, you have to be ’bout that life,” Weezy told DJ Drama at Hot 107.9. “It’s kinda putting rap on the backburner. Rap’s taking a backseat to skateboarding.”

It’s about that time, Weezy explained. He feels like rap is getting old and it’s about that time to begin doing other things.

“I’m always looking for the next thing to do. It does get pretty boring when it comes to just the rapping. I’ve done so much of it,” Wayne explained. “I’ve been doing it since I was 8; about to be 30 in September, and I’m still rapping. I kinda feel like I’m getting old.”
