  • Rapper and founder of record label Young Money Entertainment, Lil Wayne, has said that after the forthcoming release his mixtape Dedication 4 with DJ Drama, he's going to take a break from the rap game and focus entirely on his newly found love - skateboarding.

    "I picked up the skateboard and I thought it'd be a hobby and what happened is it's a lifestyle. In order to be fully committed, you have to live that lifestyle. With these young kids now, you have to be about that life. It's kind of putting rap on the back burner. Rap is taking a backseat to skating. I think I deserve that. I think fans deserve a little to no Wayne. I've been everywhere. I've been out on everybody's song. My artists have been doing awesome. I believe my fans deserve some peace from me. I'll be on my skateboard in the meantime."

    The news doesn't come as much of a surprise as Wayne is barely pictured any more without a skateboard under his arm. He also took some time out from his recent tour to regularly visit skateparks, including The Berrics.

    • I'm no fan of this guy but that's a smart move. When he finally dusts off the mic it'll be like Jay Z coming out of retirement.

    • Hilarious. He's saying he wants to focus on a skateboarding lifestyle. As Hakim Bey puts it, "get a life, not a lifestyle."
