Lil Wayne is more than just a rapper and producer these days. He is also a philanthropist, giving of his time to the youth. But if he had it his way, his volunteering would go unnoticed.
“To be totally honest with you, that’s Cortez,” Weezy says. Cortez, being his best friend and manager. “If it was left up to me, then y’all still wouldn’t know what I’m doin’.” In collaboration with Mountain Dew, Lil Wayne launched his DEWeezy campaign and then got with a mentoring program called Stoked. Stoked is a youth mentoring program based out of New York City that builds self esteem through board sports. Weezy teamed up with them to create a 30 second Mountain Dew video for DEWeezy. In the commercial Weezy asks, “Why stop at rappin’ when you can skate too,”
A humble Weezy not only takes time out for the youth, but he also enjoys spending time with his own children. Weezy told MTV News, “There’s nothing better than that, period — being a father.” “I’ve done so many things… I don’t get no joy like the joy I get being a father. Simple things like helping my daughter with her homework. Simple things like putting my sons to sleep.”
