Skate Registration: Watch Kanye West learn how to do an ollie

Radical, dude.

Kanye West has proved his credentials on two wheels, after he successfully learned how to pull off an ollie.

The rap icon was seen learning the skateboard trick in Miami, with a series of Instagram videos showing the moment that teacher Alex Raspa put him through his paces.

“You gotta be comfortable,” Raspa tells Kanye.


He then encourages the rapper to “do a little one!” before Kanye pulls off a decent ollie on what seems to be his first attempt.

In a subsequent clip, a now-confident Kanye attempts to get even better, explaining: “I need some air though. Don’t give me no dap for that weak ass shit.”

In other Kanye news, he was forced to apologise last week after he was caught texting during the opening night of a Broadway musical based on the music of Cher.

The rapper offered a rare apology on Twitter after he was caught texting during The Cher Show on Broadway.


“The dynamics of Cher and Sonny’s relationship made Kim and I grab each other’s hand and sing ‘I got you babe’”, he replied to a cast member who questioned his theatre etiquette.

“Please pardon my lack of etiquette. We have so much appreciation for the energy you guys put into making this master piece.”
