Weezy just inked a deal to have his line distributed at Macy’s.
“It feels awesome. I told my mom, and she was like, ‘That’s great!’ She shops at Macy’s,” Lil Wayne told MTV News with a childlike laugh. “I’m pretty proud of myself, pat on the back.”
Wayne launched TRUKFIT in January, and in just five short months, landed the line in one of the biggest retail chains in the country. It’s no small feat, considering the inspiration for the line came from folks in Weezy’s old New Orleans neighborhood who couldn’t afford to shop in high-end retail chains for brands like Ralph Lauren’s Polo or Tommy Hilfiger.
“There was a truck that would come around the neighborhood for the less-fortunate people that can’t go to those stores, and he would have those same items — those Polos, those Tommys — for less,” Tunechi explained. “If you were known to have that outfit, then it was not called an ‘outfit,’ it was called a ‘truck fit.’ “
