Weezy says it’s checks over stripes for him, but his reasoning will have you LOLing.

Lil Wayne did a Q&A with Barbados-based rum company Bumbu called “The Bumbu Room,” and he played a little game of this or that. The NOLA rapper gave his two cents on Shaq or Tim Duncan, Prince or Michael Jackson, and Nike or adidas.

He said it’s basically checks all day, but it has nothing to do with Drake and Ye. “I’m rocking with Nike, I’ve been rocking with Nike since a kid. Only because the check was a little harder to draw in class, when you was a kid. So I mean, if you’re about to draw some shoes and you draw some shoes with Three Stripes on them, that’s cool. And you know, that’s cool, the girls like that, that, ‘oh, he drew some shells [Superstars],’ but if you come back with that Nike, and you draw that Nike, that same girl is going to want you to draw that on her folder. The cover of her folder for class, that whole year.”

Ahhhhh it all makes sense now. That was of course an answer even though unexpected, still to be expected from Weezy. The entire Q & A is pretty hilarious, watch the 3:16 clip below:
