Clothing Line

Trukfit

Lil Wayne has launched his own clothing line Trukfit in 2012. The clothing line is inspired by skateboarding, the hobby he developed in 2011.

Personal Biography

Lil Wayne opened the New Orleans skate park and showed off his skating skills along with a group of professionals including Paul Rodriguez and Theotis Beasley. The new Trukstop park was opened in the rapper's hometown of New Orleans on September 26, 2012.

Health

Lil Wayne was hospitalized on 25 October 2012 after suffering seizure-like symptoms on board his private jet. He has been rushed to a Texas hospital. In the space of 24 hours, Wayne has been hospitalized again after suffering convulsions. He has been admitted at a Louisiana hospital the second time.

Despite the couple of seizures in a span of 24 hours, Lil Wayne tweeted that he is recovering well. "Thanx for all the prayers! I am good." read the tweet. Wayne was released from the Oschner Medical Center in Kenner, Los Angeles on the afternoon of 26 October 2012. Sources say that Lil Wayne was recovering at his mom's house.

On 22 November 2012, Lil Wayne revealed that he is taking seize medication. He said that the doctors have given him strict orders to adhere to after the health scares.

Hobbies

Skating

Lil Wayne started skating in 2011 when he saw someone else skating and thought it was interesting. "I thought it would be just a hobby, and I thought only people with skills can do it. When you finally get into it and you learn to like it, you'll quickly learn to love it. It's more than just four wheels and a piece of wood.", he said on September 26, 2012.

While skateboarding at a St. Louis-area skateboard park, Lil Wayne injured his head. He required stitches, which left a scar over his left eye.
