Lil Wayne was gifted with his own “pro model” skateboard, which includes an image of Lil Wayne accompanied by some of his best lyrics. Pro skaters Torey Pudwill, Keelan Dadd, Yosef Ratleff and more surprised Wayne at a private skatepark. Phil Lopez, Young Money Skate videographer, wanted to reward Wayne for all his hardwork and dedication he’s put into the craft over the past decade. Watch video HERE (credit: @spanishmiketv).
In the holiday spirit, Wayne and his business partner/Young Money Entertainment President Mack Maine also gave back to their hometown of New Orleans by inviting 150 kids to celebrate “A Weezy Christmas” at Dave & Busters. They partnered with Wilson Sporting Goods to provide the attendees top-of-the-line equipment across the following sports: basketball, football, baseball, soccer, and tennis.

“This was a Christmas gift, but I decided to turn it into a surprise because it would be more meaningful that way. As Wayne’s videographer, I wanted to do something special for him that he’d remember. I approached Torey, owner of ThankYOUSkateCo, with the board design, and he was able to help execute the production process.” – Phillip Lopez YM Skate videographer
