Lil’ Wayne taking a break from rap to skateboard

Lil’  Wayne’s last release, The Carter IV, was received fairly negatively by both critics and fans alike. Now it seems the rapper will be taking a hiatus from his musical career for a while to focus on something that really interests him; skateboarding.

During a recent interview with DJ Drama, the artist stated that “I believe the fans deserve some peace from me, so I’ll be on my skateboard in the meantime”. The rapped made clear that he was not giving up music, though, as he followed with “It’s kinda putting rap on the back burner, that’s all. Rap’s taking a backseat to skating, that’s all”.

For those of you hungry for a new Wayne release, his mixtape with Drama, Dedication 4, is due out sometime in August.
