Lil Wayne has confirmed that his first shoe deal has been signed with Supra.
“I have also signed with Supra,” Weezy officially announced on MTV’s new show, Hip-hop POV.
The sneaker deal with Supra comes in addition to Wayne’s new skater-friendly clothing line, TRUKFIT, and the YMCMB superstar about to be blessed with his own line of Beats by Dre headphones. Last month, Wayne also signed with Mountain Dew to launch their DEWeezy campaign.
“I’m about to get money,” Wayne added with a smile.
So why is right now the apt time for Wayne to be the ultimate pitchman?
“I’m ready to do stuff like that,” Weezy simply told POV’s co-host Amanda Seales.
As for the music, well, his next batch of tunes is shaping up well too.
Tunechi previously told MTV that his upcoming LP will be called Devol, which is loved spelled backwards.
“That’s ‘loved’ spelled backwards, and it’s my version of love songs,” Wayne explained in a previous episode of POV. ”What I mean by my version of love songs is meaning they’re not saying, ‘I love you.’ It’s all material I did when I was locked up.”
More recently, Weezy can be heard on the track “Roman Reloaded” off Nicki Minaj’s sophomore album, Pink Friday … Roman Reloaded, which debuted at No. 1 on the charts in its debut week last week. Minaj also signed on to become the face of Pepsi’s Pop beverage, joining Weezy with Mountain Dew, another Pepsi product, as the two YMCMB artists that have deals with the soft drink brand.—Jakinder Singh
