Video: Lil Wayne goes skateboarding at the Skatepark of Tampa



This feels a lot like April, when Lady Gaga took over the city of Tampa, first playing a blockbuster show at the St. Pete Times Forum, then going clubbing and hanging out with Iron Maiden.

Apparently, at some point after his concert in Tampa on Wednesday, Lil Wayne made a quick, early-morning trip (we're talking 3 to 5 a.m.) to the Skatepark of Tampa, where he dropped in and started rolling all over the place with his Cash Money crew. The guys then went on a big shopping spree right after the session, so if you've had your eyes on a slick pair of shoes in the shop this week, you might be out of luck.

"They showed us mad love here at the Skatepark of Tampa, man," Weezy said in the video posted above. "I'm coming back again and again and again."

He wasn't lying: Despite enduring a few wipeouts, Lil Wayne returned to the Skatepark of Tampa the very next day. "Just hit the Skatepark of Tampa up,AGAIN! Props to my manz Chris for that wall ride. Sh!t was sikk!," Weezy tweeted early Friday.

Staffers posted a bunch of photos of Weezy cold chillin' at the SPoT, noting it was a little like the time Dave Chappelle stopped by in 2004. Click here for their full report. And check out another clip of Weezy skateboarding in Tampa after the jump.
