Last night during 106 & Park, BET announced the nominations for their 2012 Hip-Hop Awards show. Lil Wayne was nominated 5 times in the categories: “Best Hip-Hop Video” for “HYFR (Hell Ya Fuckin’ Right)“, “Reese’s Perfect Combo Award” for “The Motto“, “Track Of The Year” for “The Motto“, “Best Club Banger” for “The Motto“, and “Hustler Of The Year“.
Mike Epps will be hosting this year’s awards show, but there is no word yet on if Weezy will be attending or taking part in one of the cyphers. However, we will find out on September 29th when the event is taped at the Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center in Georgia. The actual show will only air on TV October 9th at 8PM EST though.
While at the 2012 Magic Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada on August 20th, Lil Wayne showed off his new SUPRA shoe line that he has called “Chimera“.
Weezy also spoke with MTV at the event about his own line of sneakers with SUPRA, where the name “Chimera” comes from, how he balances his music and fashion businesses, the meaning behind his TRUKFIT clothing line, if he thought TRUKFIT would be as successful as it is, his own personal style and why he dresses the way he does.
What are your thoughts on the footwear design and will you be purchasing a pair when they are released on May 1st, 2013
