After a successful release of The Carter III, Lil Wayne is in the mood to celebrate. The “Greatest Rapper Alive” is out venturing into other things besides music. Weezy has signed on with Milestone Brands and French grower Voirin-Jumeh, to create his own brand of champagne. The line of champagne is called Halo Champagne and made up of four different types of flavors each making it unique to its kind. Halo Champagne made its first appearance in Lil Wayne’s hit single “Lollipop”. Lil Wayne recently spoke with AllHipHop.com and said in a statement, â€œIâ€™m excited about this venture with Milestone Brands, Champagne is for celebrating. There are so many different business opportunitiesâ€¦I want to take advantage of it all. Iâ€™m ready to put my foot in a new door.â€
