Lil Wayne brought New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward a blast of positivity at the DEWeezy skate park grand opening with Paul Rodriguez and Theotis Beasley. After skating the park, Weezy reveals how his experience as a skateboarder compares to music in his life and his main goal of legitimately getting on a flow program. Dew skaters P-Rod and Theotis also talk about what it’s like to skate with Wayne.
The DEWeezy skate park project, spearheaded by Lil Wayne with support from Mountain Dew, aims to help revitalize the Katrina-ravaged neighborhood through skateboarding. Fellow Dew Team skaters Keelan Dadd, Justin Schulte, Cody Davis, Boo Johnson, & Carlos Zarazua also skated during the epic first session.
This week’s Music Monday goes to The Game‘s new video for “Celebration” featuring Chris Brown, Tyga, Wiz Khalifa, & Lil Wayne. There are also cameos from Paul Rodriguez, Nyjah Huston, Jereme Rogers, Shane O’neill, & Thug Nasty!
This week, we traveled to Paul Rodriguez‘s private TF to film a special episode with Paul and Shane O’Neill. We discussed Paul’s recent X Games and Street League wins, skating with Lil Wayne, an awkward Jason Dill restroom moment, having Brad Staba as a boss, the new Nike SB video, & more!
When Baker skateboards pro Theotis Beasley swung through New York, Tim Brodhagen sat down with him to talk about contests, travel, the CCS cover shoot with Lil Wayne, and when the friendliest man in skateboarding expects to get his pro model with Nike. And then Beasley lit up the Hudson River Skate Park, just for the dose cameras.
