It appears running your own urbanwear line isn’t enough for Weezy.
Now, Lil Wayne has teamed up with shoe designers, Supra, in order to produce a new collaborative range.
The official announcement was made recently that Wayne would be joining forces with the company.
Supra’s parent company, ONE Distribution, described the collaboration, claiming that the shoe designs would be "reflecting the various interests and inspirations of both parties."
ONE Distribution’s Global Vice President of Brands, Matt Fontana, issued a statement in which he said, "Lil Wayne is a true style icon and a trendsetter. He’s perfectly suited for a collection with SUPRA because he embodies the same spirit that drives the brand: he’s a leader, not a follower. We’re ecstatic about creating a range of shoes with Lil Wayne."
The new collection is set to preview this summer, at the PROJECT Trade Show in Las Vegas, Nevada from August 20-22.
Prior to the formal announcement, Wayne released the news on "MTV's Hip-Hop POV" in April of this year.
