Skateboarding legend Tony Hawk shared his thoughts on rappers and skateboarding.
When TMZ asked Hawk which rappers he thinks are the most talented on the board, the California native had to think for a bit, but eventually it came to him. “Honestly, the best skater that I’ve seen who raps is Tyler, The Creator,” said Hawk. “He really can skate. He’s legit.”
When asked specifically about Lil Wayne’s skills on the board, let's just say Hawk doesn't seem to think the Young Money rapper is a natural. “I don’t think he picked it up as early. Let’s just put it that way,” said Hawk.
