The launch of a skate park by rapper Lil Wayne and a host of big-money sponsors, including Mountain Dew, hasn’t gotten off to an easy start. The building the skate park is housed in didn’t pass an electrical inspection and has to be re-wired, and only a handful of kids are able to skate at a time because of a shortage of staffing.
