Sneaker Me Dope: Lil Wayne Rocking Air Jordan 10 ‘Old Royal’

Earlier in the week, music artist Lil Wayne was spotted sitting court side at the Miami Heat vs New York Knicks game. Weezy was rocking a pair of Air Jordan 10 ‘Old Royal’ sneakers. These sneakers last hit Jordan retailers this past February. “Featuring white tumbled leather construction, the shoe is helped by glossy patent overlays along the side panels, as well as Old Royal on the tongue, collar and eyestay. Stealth grey works the mesh lace loops, pull-tab and teams up with royal for a checker print on the interior. White handles the midsole, which sits atop an alternating royal and stealth rubber outsole to complete the look.“-Source

MMG rapper Meek Mill has signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation for management. The news was announced in a recent interview with LifeandTimes.Com. The Philly native, who released his Dream Chasers 2 mixtape earlier in the week is now apart of the same management company as his MMG labelmate Wale, pop singer Rihanna and R&B singer Melanie Fiona. Below are a couple of excerpts from Meek’s interview with LifeandTimes.

L+T: So you’re signed to Roc Nation management…
MM
: Yeah, that’s the new deal I put together. Me coming up in this rap game, I was always an underground artist coming up by myself and making all of the moves by myself. And my manager – he’s just like me, we’ve been coming up in the streets by ourselves. So we just decided to partner up with Roc Nation and take things to another level.

L+T: Now that you’re aligned with two of the most important organizations in hip-hop, how do you feel that’s going to define your career?
MM
: I think it’s going to take me to the next level. I’ve got Warner Bros. behind me, Maybach Music Group, and Roc Nation; some of the most powerful people in the game. That’s like 80 percent of the game right there. You know, Ca$h Money, they like family. So it’s like you’ve got everyone on your team at one time, and it feels good to have all that behind you at once. It’s like a force that can’t be stopped.

Meek’s Dream Chasers 2 mixtape received over 3 million downloads in two days. He is in the studio working on his debut album, entitled Dreams & Nightmares due August 28th via MMG/WMG. He is also an opening act on Drake’s ‘Club Paradise’ tour.
