After four Grammys, nine albums, 13 years and countless mix tapes, Lil Wayne has effectively conquered the hip-hop world. In 2012, he’s literally stepping into a new one as he revealed plans for a signature sneaker, and not one that’s a part of his Trukfit streetwear line.

Speaking to Vibe Monday, Wayne revealed that he is about to sign a contract with a “well-known company” to endorse a shoe. “I do have a shoe coming out soon but it won’t be Trukfit,” he revealed. “I have shoe with a well-known company. I just don’t want to say yet because I haven’t dotted the line yet. But it’s done.”
Wayne didn’t say which company would be producing the shoe, but he did reveal that “it’s not a Nike or Reebok.” When the reporter pointed out that he’s frequently been seen wearing Supras, he demurred, “Uh-oh. Watch out.”
