Lil Wayne is a renowned figure in contemporary hip-hop, with his influence now extending to a mobile skateboarding game that was created to celebrate his love for the sport and his hometown of Hollygrove, New Orleans.

The app, titled 'Lil Wayne: Sqvad Up' can be downloaded on both Apple and Android devices and was made in collaboration with Samsung Electronics America. The skateboarding game is to be presented at the E3 gaming trade show -- where Lil Wayne will make an appearance and showcase a VR version of Sqvad Up.

The company claims that the app is addictive, stylistically reminiscent of arcade games and user-friendly for all audiences. With Lil Wayne's massive fan base and social media following that allows him to promote the game himself, its likely that Lil Wayne: Sqvad Up will be quickly downloaded.
