Lil Wayne To Retire After 'Tha Carter IV'?

So here's the deal. In the latest issue of XXL Magazine, Lil Wayne apparently announced that he has plans to retire after he releases Tha Carter IV. He explained that he wants to bow out while he is still on top. He also wants to "make y’all want me when I retire." Later in the interview, he mentioned that the main reason for his talks of retirement is that he wants to properly raise his children.

“Honestly, this is the real truth,” Wayne said. “I honestly think it’s unfair to my kids. I’m super dedicated into what I do. Like, it’s no questions—it’s hands down, I do this. I live this. I don’t have a day out my week that I do something else. I do this every day of my life, and I’m not about to stop, ’cause that’s the only way you can succeed in this business, is to do it the way I do it. I want to succeed the way I want to succeed. You can succeed. You can put out a hit… But to do it the way I want to do it, to be comfortable to do what the fuck I want to do, you’ve got to work like no other. Like I said, it’s unfair to my kids. So about 30, 31, 32, I gotta get ready.”

Weezy also said that he might hang it up after Carter IV, so take this all with a huge grain of salt. Like, the biggest grain of salt ever. Because let's face it, if Jay-Z couldn't stay retired when he "left" the game in 2003 at the age of 33, I doubt Weezy can. Dude's only 28.

I'm going to miss lil wayne if he do decide to retire. He is the best rapper alive hands down.


Hopefully lil wayne does not retire because this guy is my favorite rapper and also my inspiration to do what im gonna do.I have been wayne's biggest fan since i was a toddler considering im only 15, but if wayne does retire he has a reason,I think that on the first week The Carter IV is gonna sell at least 2 to 3 million copies and plus he has drake(my second favorite rapper)and the rest of the young money crew, so he is set for at least 3 or more lifetimes.


wayne my nigga n if he choose to retire thats his decision u cant get mad at him if he do retire cause all his life as a rapper he wanted to be the best and at a young age he already that and he can live his life with or with out them hatters cause he still have us his fans




i dont want WEEZY F BABE to retire rapping will be boring without him, to tell the truth the only rappers i list to i YUNG MONEY mostly ur biggest fan nigga
