Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne is preparing to keep fans laced fresh to death entering into the summer by releasing his new TRUKFIT clothing line at Macy's stores nationwide in less than 48 hours.
According to reports, Wayne's publiczed clothing venture hits Macy's shelves Friday (June 1).
Rejoice, because Weezy is coming to one of America's most accessible department stores. Beginning June 1, Lil Wayne's apparel line TRUKFIT will be available at select Macy's locations across the country and Macy's.com. Fans will be able to purchase a wide range of TRUKFIT's signature t-shirts, sweatshirts and caps. TRUKFIT is available in men's and boy's sizes at a moderate price point. (Artist Direct)
Recently, TRUKFIT brand manager Mike Morris recently gave SOHH readers a few reasons to give the new line a shot.
"The number one reason is it's a Lil Wayne clothing line. What else could you ask for? You can pair it with a blazer, a cardigan [or] layer it up underneath a Henley and great pair of shoes. Just think about it, Wayne goes from meetings to studios to skate parks and arenas and [will] still be at home with his family. So he wouldn't sell you anything that you wouldn't be able to roll out with and still look cool." (SOHH 5 Reasons)
Morris also cited strong celebrity co-signs for helping the line stand out.
"All the celebrities love us! [We] have a good deal of relationships with celebrities. Anywhere from pro skaters to P-Rod, Fred Durst, Mystikal, Corey Gunz, Jonathan Cook from Forever the Sickest Kids, they've all worn TRUKFIT. I mean you name it, people that are on the rise, like young hip-hop artists, have worn and stunted with it on. James Franco, the actor, has also requested TRUKFIT!" (SOHH 5 Reasons)
Back in March, Weezy detailed his motivation behind putting the brand together.
Weezy's first clothing line, Trukfit, is simply a reflection of the current digs he's into wearing. Skateboard influenced, yes, but don't label his brand anything yet. YMCMB's head figure has ideas that change on a daily basis. He tells VIBE his sense of fashion comes from no one else but the man in the mirror. "I'm really fond of Marc Jacobs as a designer. Everybody knows I love Polo," Weezy tells VIBE. "But as far as me being fixated on some person's style, that just ain't... nahhh. That just ain't me." Ultimately, Wayne says he doesn't even pay attention to the fact that his style choices influence kids from all over the world. "Nah, I don't be trippin. I just love the opportunity," Weezy says after explaining how his brand will give kids from all backgrounds the opportunity to "dress fly." (VIBE)
