Besides having a successful music career, Lil Wayne wants to have a successful skateboarding career as well.

Wednesday Weezy opened up his own skateboarding park, “Trukstop” in his hometown, of New Orleans.

The park is located in the 9th Ward section of New Orleans, which is left to be one of the most devastated sections in the city after Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

According to the Associated Press Weezy’s newfound interest in skateboarding was introduced to us about a year and a half ago.

To go along with his passion of skateboarding, Lil Wayne recently launched his skateboarding inspired clothing line “Trukfit.” You can always catch Weezy rocking that skateboard attire.

“I thought it would be just a hobby, and I thought only people with skills can do it,” he said. “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.”

According to Foxnews, The new park occupies a building that survived the 2005 flooding. It was built using recycled materials, it will be run using solar energy and includes all the features skaters love stairs with rails for sliding, skating embankments and half pipes.

“I just want to help out my city, help out the people and the kids, give them something to do, something they haven’t done before,” he said. “It’s always good to learn something new.” said Wayne.

Lil Wayne partnered up with Mountain Dew and Glu Agency, a New York-based advertising firm, to launch the new park. The park is set to be open to the public seven days a week.
