Lil Wayne continues to roll out music videos from his most recent studio album Funeral. This time, he presented a video for “Piano Trap” and “Not Me” while using the opportunity to show off his skateboarding skills.

Both songs were incorporated in one video that consists mostly out of highlights of Wayne’s skating. It shows the “A Milli” rapper doing ollies, kickflips, grinds, and all sorts of different aerials and being surprisingly good at it.

Check out the video below.

According to Lil Wayne, the idea for the music video came when his skater friend Yosef “Yoyo” Rateliff showed him a skating video that used “Piano Trap” as a musical background. He liked it so much that he decided to do something similar.

“It was money from there!” Wayne told Rolling Stone magazine.

Wayne released Funeral back in January to positive reviews. The record, which followed 2018’s release Tha Carter V, also debuted at the top of US Billboard Charts, marking his fifth No.1 album.

The rapper recently announced that the deluxe edition of the record is currently in the works and will be released soon. It will come with several new tracks as well as interesting remixes.
