Lil Wayne taking skate ramp on tour with him

Lil Wayne has taken his own personal skate ramp on tour with him so he can practice his new favourite hobby.

The Lollipop hitmaker is such a fan of the sport he has reportedly hired a professional skater to teach him tricks.

And Wayne, real name Dwayne Carter, Jr., has packed a portable quarter pipe and ramp into a trailer, which will follow him on tour.

Editors at TMZ.com report Wayne often pulls over during his travels to practice his board skills - and last month (Aug11) he received nine stitches to a head wound after an accident at a skate park during a stop in St. Louis, Missouri.
