Lil Wayne Dismissed From ‘Trukfit’ Lawsuit

Last fall, a woman by the name of Shanise Taylor sued Lil Wayne, his Trukfit clothing line, his record label and photographer Derick G, after her photo was used on shirts from the line. Shanise said she never authorized her image to be used, as the pics are from a random, unrelated photo shoot she did for fun back in 2011. She also didn’t like how they photoshopped the image to make it appear as if she’s not wearing underwear, and the fact that she was “on apparel associated with misogyny and violence.” She demanded damages for “the harm to her reputation, mental anguish, humiliation and the harm it has caused her career.”

Karen Civil Teams Up With Lil Wayne To Give Back To Haiti For The Holidays

This past Friday, media maven Karen Civil’s Live Civil imprint teamed up with Lil Wayne’s Trukfit clothing line to bring a merry Christmas to over 500 students in Haiti. Scholastic Corporation and L’union Suite also pitched in to add to the holiday joy! During the Live Civil Christmas Giveaway, each child was gifted an outfit from Trukfit, as well as a Live Civil Thinking Cap from Karen’s partnership with New Era. Haitian-American professional boxer Andre Berto even surprised the kids by dressing up as Santa Claus and passing out toys, and Scholastic donated a book to each of the 500 children, while Karen did a live reading of her new book, Be You & Live Civil. This all went down at the Live Civil playground, something Karen has been working hard at building in Haiti since her 30th birthday in 2014.


Uh Oh! Lil Wayne Is Getting Sued By An Underwear Model For WHAT?!

It looks like Lil Wayne has made en enemy with the female who is smack dab in the middle of his Trukfit shirt. You know, the model who looks like she doesn’t have any panties on. Shanise Taylor is pissed off because she said she never once agreed to work with Wayne’s company and thinks he represents “misogyny.” In the court documents from the lawsuit, Taylor explains that back in 2011 she did a random photoshoot. She says the photographer sent her the photos she took and she thought that was the end of it. WELP, looks like that isn’t the case.


(Videos) Justin Bieber Was Ballin’ With Rappers Just Before His Arrest

In the early hours of this morning, Justin Bieber was arrested on South Beach after cops pulled him over for drag-racing in his yellow Lambo, and found that he was not only DRUNK, but was driving on an expired license. He also resisted arrest, so that will likely result in additional trouble for the pop star. Just before he was speeding through the Miami streets (reportedly against Def Jam singer Khalil,) the Biebs was over at Lil Wayne’s indoor skate park, brushing up on his basketball skills with Young Money president, Mack Maine. Little did he know how his night was going to end! Check out videos of their ball-out session below.

Next week, one winner will be chosen to receive a $5000 TRUKFIT gold and diamond necklace, one of only 20 owned by Weezy and his YMCMB family. Below, Tunechi gives you the 411 on how to enter. Also just a heads up: TRUKFIT isn’t just for guys anymore! The line recently released their new Juniors line as well, available now at all TRUKFIT retailers (Dillard’s, Macy’s, Zumiez, Tilly’s and Dr.Jay’s, as well as Trukfit’s site.) Special shout out to Marisa Flores, Tune’s stylist and TRUKFIT’s creative advisor, for sending me some pieces. I love them! TRUK DA WORLD!


(Photos + Video) Hmm…Did Lil Wayne Cut His Hair Shorter? [Also: Peep The Young Money Pinball & Slot Machines!]

Lil Wayne is currently out in Miami enjoying some time at home before he leaves for his European tour next week, and today had a photo shoot there for the upcoming Holiday 2013 collection for his clothing line, Trukfit. In a series of photos and video posted by his manager Cortez Bryant from the set and from earlier in the day, it appears that Tunechi’s dreads are quite a bit shorter than they’ve been as of late (photo in the gallery for comparison.) Could just be the way they’re sitting, but I can’t really think of a way for hair to sit to make it that drastically different. Maybe it’s tied up under the hat and only part is hanging down? What do you think? Check the pics/video and let us know. Sidebar: how sick are those YM slot and pinball machines?!
