Lil Wayne launching fashion collection for skaters

Hip-hop superstar Lil Wayne is branching out into the fashion industry with a clothing line inspired by his love of skateboarding.

The Lollipop hitmaker has been working on Trukfit, a unique collection featuring bold graphics and quality fabrics all based on the rapper's own style.

He will debut Trukfit at the upcoming Agenda Show, a trade event for streetwear and action sports, which is set to take place in New York on 23 and 24 January (12).

Wayne joins a long list of fellow rappers-turned-designers, including Sean 'Diddy' Combs, Jay-Z, Nelly and Kanye West.
