Proving that there’s no bounds to the rapper’s, um, eccentric taste, Lil Wayne recently got a new piece of ink on his body, and it sure is unique.
In what seems to be a series of odd ball choices from the rapper who claims he’s going to retire from his rapping career, Lil Wayne revealed his new “BAKED” tattoo. Now, the tattoo doesn’t have to come with an illegal connotation. It’s possibly that the rapper loves Lays’ Baked Potato chips, but Lil Wayne hasn’t exactly been secretive about his use of marijuana.
Back in 2011, Lil Wayne spoke to GQ about his thoughts on weed and his apparent sobriety, saying:
“I was never on heroin or cocaine or Ecstasy or nothing like that. I drank syrup and smoked a lotta weed. I wish I could be back on it. That’s how it f—ing feels. How does it feel to be sober? I’ll be like, ‘It feels f—ed-up.” What you want me to say? ‘It feels great’ No. I was on something that the doctor prescribed. I was ill, and that was helping me.”
Another odd life-change for Lil Wayne is his retirement from rapping. Instead, he vows to work on his skateboarding, which you can see below in the Mountain Dew ad he participated in. Wayne told Vibe magazine about his decision:
“You have to be fully committed because it’s super scary. Even at the studio I have ramps and shit. In the booth I literally have something I can boardslide on and a quarter pipe. So I get off the mic, drop the board down and skate.”
