Lil Wayne releasing skate shoe

Rapper Lil Wayne is expanding his interests in the world of skateboarding after landing a deal to release his own signature skate shoe.

Earlier this year (Jan12), the Lollipop hitmaker debuted his Trukfit clothing line, inspired by his love of the street sport, and he recently teamed up with beverage giant Mountain Dew to build a new skate park in his native Louisiana.

Now Wayne reveals he's got his own sneaker coming out with popular skate brand Supra.

The enterprising rapper has also sealed a deal with hip-hop legend Dr. Dre to produce his own Beats By Dre headphones line.

He tells MTV, "I've also signed with Supra, Dre Beats... I got my own Beats coming out soon... I get money!"

Wayne joins Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Sean 'Diddy' Combs among the artists who have partnered with Beats By Dre for their own audio accessories.
