(AllHipHop News) Lil Wayne’s skatepark being launched in conjunction with Mountain Dew is slated to open in New Orleans at the end of this month, according to representatives for the rapper and Mountain Dew.
A ribbon cutting ceremony for the DEWeezy Skate Park, which is in the city’s 9th Ward area, is slated for August 29.
Reps for Mountain Dew hope the new state-of-the-art, eco-friendly skatepark will become a center of the community, which was devastated by and is still recovering from, the impact of Hurricane Katrina, which caused $81 billion worth of damages in 2005.
“We are thrilled to move forward with the next phase of the DEWeezy campaign,” said Lil Wayne’s manager Cortez Bryant, co-CEO of Blueprint Group. “Lil Wayne is passionate about skateboarding and the New Orleans community and this campaign fits those passions together seamlessly.”
