Okay, Lil Wayne. You win! When you first started skateboarding regularly about a year or so ago, we thought it was just a phase—kinda like that time you had us all convinced that you were gonna practice the guitar 24/7 and somehow transform yourself into the next Jimi Hendrix. But, now that you’re scheduled to appear on the May 2012 cover of the well-respected skating mag CCS in a few weeks, we’ll admit that we believe you when you say you’re serious about this skateboarding stuff. If skating is truly what makes you happy, then who are we to say that you shouldn’t do it?
In reality, we probably should’ve believed you months ago. After all, you’ve had some been crazy moments on your skateboard since you first started. And you’ve made plenty of headlines for your skating escapades. So many, in fact, that we decided to honor the announcement that you’ll be on the cover of CCS by putting together a list of your 10 craziest skateboarding moments. After looking at these, there’s absolutely no doubt in our minds that you’re not leaving the skate park anytime soon. Just promise us that means you won’t stop rapping, okay?—Chris Yuscavage
