Lil Wayne returned to his hometown to give back to his community in an amazing way. The rapper opened up his very own skatepark “Trukstop,” in partnership with Mountain Dew and Glu Agency.
After Hurricane Katrina, this particular area of NOLA received a great deal of attention, with mixed results, but having a native son like Weezy contribute in this way can only be positive. The original ribbon-cutting, which was set for August 29, had to be delayed because of (what else) weather, but as of today, the park is open for business.
