Lil Wayne put his bowling skills to good use in his hometown Tuesday (Dec 14) as he joined NBA player Chris Paul (of the New Orleans Hornets) for the Celebrity Bowling Invitational, which was put together by the PBA (Professional Bowlers Association), at Riverboat Lanes in New Orleans.

Wayne, who has been bowling since he was a teenager, has said in the past that he owns four custom-made bowling balls.

“If you talk to a professional bowler, he would explain or she’ll explain how your own ball and your own shoes, and perfect lanes are important,” Wayne told CBS news anchor, Katie Couric in an interview last year. “I bowl with the curve and so it makes it curve.”

Other celebs on hand for the charity event were rapper Nelly, New Orleans Saints football player Reggie Bush, and Young Money president Mack Maine (not pictured) who cheered from the sidelines. The event is scheduled to air on ESPN on Super Bowl Sunday.
