Weezy is Honored for Bowling


Rapper Lil Wayne is one of several celebrities that have been nominated by the Bowling Proprietors Association of America (BPAA) for consideration into the International Bowling Hall of Fame.

Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, Jeff Bridges, Kim Kardashian, basketball legend Michael Jordan, Justin Bieber and others are among the nominees for the prestigious hall.

Lil Wayne and PBA Hall of Fame bowler Norm Duke teamed up for a charity event earlier this year. Weezy also placed in the finals of Chris Paul’s annual Celebrity Bowling Invitational.

“Each of these 2011 candidates has had a significant impact in helping to keep bowling as one of the nation’s most treasured pastimes,”International Bowling Museum and Hall of Fame Chairman Keith Hamilton told AllHipHop. “If last year’s down-to-the-wire showdown between Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber is any indication of what to expect for 2011,” Hamilton added. “We’ll be ready for a fierce battle to determine who is the next star to achieve bowling immortality.”
