Lil Nas X & Tony Hawk Confirm There’s No Bad Blood With New Skate Tutorial
There wasn’t any bad blood between Lil Nas X and Tony Hawk when the two met up and filmed a skate tutorial following the debacle about Hawk’s blood-infused skateboard.
The rapper shared photos of their positive meetup on Monday (Aug. 30), with LNX proudly holding up the sold-out Hawk Blood Deck that has two vials of the legendary athlete’s blood infused with red paint. Last Tuesday, the canned mountain water company Liquid Death revealed the limited-edition product in a graphic video announcement, where Hawk claimed part of the proceeds from the board would go toward “killing plastic pollution and to building skate parks in underserved communities.” He also told Forbes that the inspiration behind the blood-infused deck came from a 1977 Kiss comic book that had real blood in the ink.
Nas took it to the skate park to help out struggling skateboarders on how to perform vert tricks in a TikTok tutorial. But the real trick is spotting Hawk actually performing them as his stunt double. “Nah WE tweakin,” Lil Nas X captioned the moment, a clever play on his previous, ultra-viral “nah he tweakin” comment under Rap’s original Instagram post. On his Instagram Story, Nas shared a picture of the back of the board, which not only contains Hawk’s blood but also his signature. “Montero – we tweakin,” read the short message.
