Music artist Lil Wayne has decided to dedicate some of his time and money to build a Skate Park in New Orleans, But recent reports say that the project is off to a bumpy start. For starters the Building that houses the park did not pass an electrical inspection thus it had to be re-wired. Details like this will prolong the inauguration date.
NEW ORLEANS — Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne's skate park project in the city's rebuilding Lower 9th Ward is off to a bumpy start.
The building that houses the park didn't pass a city electrical inspection and had to be re-wired, and only a handful of children are able to skate at a time because of a shortage of staffing. Many days, the Trukstop skate park – named after the rapper's skateboarding-inspired Trukfit clothing line – hasn't been open at all.
"We really put the cart before the horse on this project, and right now we're at a crossroads," said Ward "Mack" McLendon, who manages the facility.
