The Meaning Behind the Viral Phrase ‘Nah he Tweakin’

If you’ve opened your Instagram in the last few hours you’ll be confused to see almost every comments section filled with the phrase “Nah he tweakin’,” and the first question is why? The phrase gained massive popularity after Lil Nas X commented on a post from Instagram page @rap saying “nah he tweakin” in response to Tony Hawk’s blood infused skateboard. We’ve done our research and got to the bottom of why every single comments section is filled with the famous phrase, and somehow Tony Hawk of all people, is the person to blame.

Update (27/08/2021): In a less than surprising turn of events the American rap star, Lil Nas X, has announced the release of his upcoming album Montero. Set to release on September 17th via Columbia Records, he made the announcement via his Twitter not long after the “nah he tweakin” meme gained serious traction online. In the post, he mentions how creating this album was a form of therapy for the 22-year-old superstar, “I’ve learned to let go of trying to control people’s perception of who I am, what I can do, and where I will be. I’ve realized the only opinion of me that really matters is my own,” he said.

Why is Instagram filled With ‘Nah He Tweakin’?

It begs the question, and your answer is Tony Hawk. The most famous skateboarder on earth recently announced that he is selling skateboards infused with his blood for $500 each. Instantly reminding the fashion world of the famous human blood-filled ‘Satan’ Air Max 97 that rapper Lil Nas X released – and promptly got sued for – back in March this year.

In a moment of frustration, Lil Nas X took to Twitter to speak on the matter, stating; “Now Tony Hawk has released skateboards with his blood painted on them, and there was no public outrage,” he said. And he’s probably right, however, we’ll note the visual representation of satanic sneakers paints a completely different perspective to a skateboard promotion with the goal of raising profits to alleviate plastic pollution. It’s still weird, Tony Hawk.

The board was released as a collaboration between Tony Hawks brand Birdhouse and Liquid Death, a mountain water company. It’s a limited edition board – only 100 will be made – and will sell at a list price of $500, all for a good cause. A portion of profits will go towards the alleviation of plastic pollution and the building of skateparks in low-income communities.

In a statement, Tony said “This collaboration is taking those connections to a new level, as I have literally put my blood (and soul) into these decks, and I take pride in knowing that organisations fighting plastic pollution and creating skate parks worldwide will be supported through our efforts,” he said.

We think it’s still a bit weird, and too “trendy” for Mr Hawk. However, everyone’s talking about it and the comments section NEVER lies, so maybe raising a little money for charity isn’t so bad after all.
