Lil Wayne’s fashion choices are just as talked about as his music… and love life.

Whether he’s rockin’ cheetah print, circulation-cutting pants at the MTV Video Music Awards or Kermit the Frog hue “moonboots” in Drake’s “Motto” video, Weezy knows how to attract attention.

2012 will bring Young Money’s leader further into the world fashion world. Wayne revealed that aside from his Trukfit brand smashing the streetwear market, his first signature shoe is also in the works.


VIBE: Do you guys plan on doing Trukfit shoes?
Lil Wayne: That will probably be further way down the line. I do have a shoe coming out soon but it won’t be Trukfit. I have shoe with a well-known company. I just don’t want to say yet because Ihaven’t dotted the line yet. But it’s done

Can you give us any hints? Is it going to be a major shoe company like Nike or Reebok?
Nah, it’s not a Nike or Reebok, I can tell you that much.

We’ve seen you in Supras heavy…
Uh-oh. Watch out [Laughs].

Weezy is expected to make the big announcement in the coming weeks. —Mikey Fresh
