Hey, Mr. Carter: Austin Mahone Teams Up with Lil Wayne on Trukfit Fashion Line
He’s already caught the eye of Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift, and now 16-year-old Austin Mahone is officially entering Lil Wayne’s orbit. The San Antonio native and YouTube discovery will join Weezy’s Trukit clothing line—Ryan Lochte gets thwarted again, and this time it’s out of the pool—to serve as its first-ever “teen brand ambassador.” Strategically, both artists can benefit from this professional hookup, as Mahone will likely see his star continue to rise and Wayne will carry on expanding both the “Fashion Icon” and “Pop Svengali” portions of his resume. From Trukfit’s official announcement: “We are delighted to welcome teen sensation Austin Mahone to the Trukfit family! We have partnered with Austin to be our first ever teen brand ambassador and are excited to have him rock the Trukfit fashions! Stay tuned for more information on this initiative in the next few weeks…”
Will Austin be allowed to wear some of Weezy’s designs during his opening sets on the upcoming Taylor Swift tour? Sure—as long as they’re red. But don’t let our babbling stop you from check out how excited Mr. Mahone is about it all:
What’s up, Mahomies! A lot of you have been asking me about my Trukfit sweatshirt I’ve been sporting lately… well I’m excited to announce I’ve partnered with Lil Wayne’s awesome Trukfit line for an endorsement deal! More news to come soon, promise
Mahomies, and the casual Weezy fan curious to see if everything he pushes out is tight and doused in leopard-print: Does Austin have the appropriate amount of swag to help carry the brand? Let’s examine.
DOES HE LIKE FLAT-BRIMMED HATS?
DOES HE KNOW HOW TO FLAUNT HIS BEST ASSETS?
Ahem, which way to the gun show?
DOES HE HAVE A SMILE THAT WILL MAKE YOU MELT?
Well, at least Austin’s got it down.
Looks like a match made in heaven to us! And even if they’re working together, Austin WILL call Wayne Mr. Carter, right? We can’t be the only ones who would relish the opportunity to break into song whenever we’re in his presence.
