Lil Wayne is using his celebrity to promote Rap-A-Lot Records founder J-Prince's Strapped Condoms brand. The rap star will appear in a series of public service announcements for the prophylactic brand's new campaign to educate youth on the importance of protecting themselves against sexually transmitted diseases and HIV.

"In the midst of this crisis where HIV and AIDS is the No. 1 killer where our race of people is concerned, I salute Lil Wayne as an authority figure for taking a stand to inform our people to use Strapped Condoms and to 'Stay Strapped for Life'," J-Prince said in a statement.
