Lil Wayne Plans To Retire, Hints That "Tha Carter IV” Will Be His Last Album

Weezy explains that he'd rather focus on raising his kids than putting out new music.

Lil Wayne has kept fans waiting on his upcoming album Tha Carter IV, but it might be the last time they get a new offering from Weezy. The Young Money chief covered XXL Magazine’s latest issue, revealing that TC4 could be the end of the line for the platinum rapper.

“I’m bowing out still on top,” he says. “I’ma make y’all want me when I retire. I’ma make y’all be like, ‘Nooo!’ I ain’t leaving out this bitch when y’all be like, ‘Yeah, it’s about time, dawg.’ Carter IV might be my last one. I’ma make y’all be like, ‘Fuck!’ Yeah, nigga, I’m gone.”

The 28-year-old elaborated by explaining that his children would be the cause for him quitting the music business.

“Honestly, this is the real truth,” he says. “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.”

    and marie, you're almost just as pathetic as wayne. If you're going to tell everybody to stop hating him, maybe you should choose your words a little better. You sound just as pathetic as his stupid tweets.

  • lilwaynehater

    Lil wayne is the most pathetic human being on earth. He isn't talented in anything, and doesn't work hard at all like most other people in the world. Why the fuck are we spending money on him? Republicans are complaining about EVERYTHING, and yet they still are spending money on a douchbag like this. Fuck him and everyone who is spending money on him and buying tickets, GROW UP and just look at him and how retarded he is.

  • marie

    man you haters need to stfu.! lil wayne is the best if you dont agree keep that shit to yourself.! nobody gives a fuck what you think.! the whole ymcmb crew is amazing.! so stfu & half of you are white bitches hatin on this man ;leave him the fuck alone ; atleast his ass is out there trying,! & all ya'll bitches need to get a life & stop hatin.! i always see comments on hids videos on youtube; if you dont like tha nigga' why the fuck you listening to his shit.? seriouslyy. -.- & dont think just cause hes retiring its cause of you haters its cause he wants to be a good dad.! so again SHUT THE FUCK UP & LEAVE LIL WAYNE ALOONEE.! haters theese days. smh #lilwayne4lifeebabbyyy

  • Corey

    Haters gonna hate Why do people even bother to argue about whether a rapper is good? Obviously it just comes down to taste. Lil Wayne being "bad" isn't stopping any of you from listening to music that you think is good. So go do that instead of hating on a rapper for doing nothing but making music that a lot of people enjoy.

  • Khard

    About fucking time.

  • mike

    Lupe Fiasco has been the best rapper for years finally people are gonna see it now that this wack rapper retires

    WHAT? :( Noo, what the hell is wrong with you weezy? That's so young to leave rap and who cares about your kids..you prob don't even know half of them and all your baby mamas. You can't leave. This is the dumbest thing I've heard and he recently stated that he LOVES what he does and won't leave until he's 40..I'm suspicious about this article.

    • brandon

      "who cares about your kids?" did you really just say that? it's HIS kids, he chooses his kids over his fans, wouldn't you do the same?

  • Amorra

    All I have to say is-- HATERS WILL HATE! WEEZY IS DIFFERENT AND IS TALENTED WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT. DON'T BELIEVE ME? CHECK HIS HATERS. YOU CAN ONLY GET THAT AMOUNT OF HATERS BY BEING DIFFERENT AND BRINGING SOMETHING TO THE TABLE THAT NOT EVERYONE ELSE BRINGS. EVERYONE LOVES A FOLLOWER BUT NO ONE LIKES A LEADER. The moment YOU decide to do something no one else dares to do, you get haters and shit talkers and people who will NEVER respect you or your hustle. THATS LIFE! So Weezy, I always have and always will respect you and what you do! You got a fan for life! :)

    • Anonymous

      No I hate him cause he isn't talented. He's unique (or was, the rest of the young money camp pretty much sounds the same and has the same rhyme and punchline style) but that doesn't make him good. Catchy choruses does not require talent. NaS Rakim Eminem AZ Crooked I Chino XL Biggie Smalls Big Pun Big L 2Pac etc. are good rappers. not this dude.

  • Lil B

  • Lee Cohen

    If he wants to retire it is his choice. I don't think he has reached his peak yet...he will probably drop 2 more because he has love for the culture. As far as the money is concerned, he has nothing to worry about. Some of you on here do not understand how a business is supposed to be operated. You work really hard, find others that want to run with you (Drake, Nicki Minaj, Tyga) and you can eventually retire whenever the hell you want. Its called giving back and making your money work for you. All the big business owners understand this. Weezy has been around for almost 12 years. You have to defintely respect his hustle...and especially Baby. They own their own product. Baby doesn't have to ever work again if he chooses. Now they can both invest in other artists or business ventures; once again, make your money work for you.) Simply put, the key to having a successful business is helping others get what they want...and you will get what you want. lmcjr

    Wayne!! Did you forget that Baby and Slim run Cash Money? You cant retire until Baby or Slim tell your ass you can retire!!! You have to keep #1 Stunna rich!!!Listen to your daddy!!!! Its obvious the kid cant make a single for shit! 6'7 was not the record! Cant sell your album off that song. Why you think the Carter got pushed back? bc there is no chart topper. His biggest crossover radio hit was Lolipop and Static Major wrote the shit before he passed. He cant top his last single so he should retire. Wayne where the big record!!!

    Bout time. he should have learned from 3 Stacks who basically left after Love Below. thats why we always appreciate when he drops a verse. Yeah No Ceilings should have been it. that's the last time even matched the fire he brought on Drought 3 or Dedication 1& 2

  • ihjs

    Lol @ all you hipster ass fags. I respect the fact that he is focusing on family.

  • DR Jam

    LOL, Lil' Wayne, you've been over exposed, talking about market saturation. You need a long sabbatical for many reasons, including the fact that "art" sometimes needs to go into hibernation. If he thinks we believe he'll be done for good, he must be thinking of his younger fanbase. Anybody who has been following Hip-hop since the 80/90s knows how fickle this business is, and how artists will come and go, and then come again. He's far too dedicated in this thing to call it quits. Anyway, I hope the Carter IV is even better than the Carter III, and it allows him to leave on a high note. THIS IS JUST A SABBATICAL.

    i never liked weezy either, but i have to respect him, cause at the end of the day he's doing it for his kids...whats more important than family? family first is what my family preaches besides, the dude is 28, young as fuck..and with all the hype ya'll giving him (hate, or love) he's going out, not on top but as a legend, people will remember weezy for his different style and all this shit he gave rap..he pretty much was the sole reason white girls and boys started listening to rap, they worship this nigga and real talk, even though i cant stand half of his music, i show him love cause of this move he just made (btw, i havent heard of too many rappers quitting for their kids..they just die out)

      There is no way in 10 years Lil Wayne will be remember as a legend. Nas, Eminem, AZ will be known as legends. Not this dude who people only like because of his catchy hooks and the beats he buys.

    • CD

      Wow the one of the first non hating comments on here!! The only one that said you don't like him but didn't talk all kinds of shit!! Congrats! But on another note, "he pretty much was the sole reason white girls and boys started listening to rap, they worship this nigga" - Ive never heard that one before and seriously doubt it's true. I know a lot of white people who listen to rap and don't like Wayne, and Ive never heard of anybody worshiping him white, black. asian or mexican. That's just plain ignorant racial profiling.

      Relax man he's not your boyfriend or daddy is he? He's just a rapper. Lil Wayne retiring at this stage aint all that bad a move. Go out on top eff it. His work ethic will go down in history. I aint the biggest Weezy supporter but his run was classic. And C-Lo Dubai is nice. Not the best, hardest,richest and all that...but he's real and the music is good. Google or Youtube him.

    • Frank Eaton

      Lil Wayne is a fad right? But...he's been around since the mid 90s, right? smh, do your research, Weezy will be remembered as one of the greatest.

    This is a smart statement from a rapper wow! Now the question remains is this a pub stunt to follow in JAy-Z's foot steps or random ish to cause a buzz on his new album. Artist like wayne should consider making real music instead of mindless pop when they come of age. The idea that hip-hop is forever the youth culture is insane and will lead only to its ultimate decline if there is one. Too much focus on whats next and not enough focus on whats good. As artist age they should be able to take new perspectives and slow down doing the music they want based on the character/brand they built in their youth. But in rap idiots act like 30 is 99 or some shit this comes from the ghetto mentality of get it now cause tomorrow you could be dead or locked up.

    Come on now, real MC's dont retire. They may take some time off to focus on other things but they dont just stop doing what they love to do. That is reason why Jay-z came back, because of his love for the music. For any rapper to announce retirement in my opinion is better off gone, because they clearly werent doing it for the love of the music. Even rakim is still putting out music and he's been in the game more than twice as long as wayne. It may not be as often but he still is.

      This guy comes on to comment on an artist he doesn't care about. He thinks in his mind that this funny joke. He is 13 years old and his favourite rapper is someone who he regularly masturbates too. He thinks that every comment he posts saying "young money are shit" will make his favourite artist much much better. In return he asks for nothing as he blindly worships his favourite artist.

  • Anonymous

    I honestly doubt he'll retire anytime soon. If he does, what he'll probably have happen to him is a post-superstardom-withdrawl-sydrome. I mean think about it like this.Super groups like U2, Bon Jovi, AC/DC, Beastie Boys, Boyz II Men, etc. have earned more money in their lives than they ever need yet every single one of 'em been on tour for the last 20 years. Why? Because they love what they do and since they found such a high level of success it's hard for them to fall back into mediocrity. Some people can do it but it's extremely hard to stop doing something you love when you're still so successful at it. Only if something else comes along that he's extremely successful at can I see him retiring anytime soon. Mega-success is a drugshows and Wayne shows all signs of being an addict.

      I have a feeling he means it. He has a lot of haters now a days. He put out pretty good songs like nightmares of the bottom and Anne and those two verses and people would have went nuts for those two years back. But ever since eminem stans started creeping out he gets hated alot. It's pathetic really, I love the old eminem but his fanbase are completely pathetic. Most of them feel the need to comment on every article saying "this guy is nothing compared to eminem" I think he would retire and make a comeback, people fall for that shit. It also doesn't matter how bad your return album will be. You will still reach amazing sales and get great feedback. "crack a bottle" anyone? Won a Grammy and got aload of attention and it was a horrible song.

  • Michael Zeldin

    Didn't Jay-Z "retire" after his Black album? And there was speculation that Encore was Eminem's last album. Basically you dont stay retired in the rap game

  • Anonymous

    Well hopefully he does, I will always remember when he owned hip hop and had great mixtapes coming out all the time. Hopefully if he does retire he doesn't go Jay z and then come back with horrible music. This is the perfect time as he is starting to fall off a little and hip hop is doing fine without him now. If he retired 2008 people would have had a fit. Haters, you are ignorant fucks. Go listen to some mixtapes or carter 2 and you will see the talent. You guys are pathetic, most eminem fans comment on every artists song or article just to say he is the best. That's sad.

      It's not just Eminem fans it's all the lame haters! Instead of just not listening to Wayne they gotta go on his pages and talk shit about how they think he's trash and don't like his music! IF YOU DON'T LIKE HIS MUSIC THEN DON"T LISTEN TO IT!!!! Every body has their opinions and just cause you don't like something doesn't mean it isn't good! And @ Anonymous: He isn't talented at all?? I respect your opinion that you don't like wayne and all but that comment is just total bull shit, if you don't like Wayne then don't listen to him but millions of other people do! There is a reason he has hundreds of millions of dollars!

      I doubt there will be a void in Hip Hop. I would argue that Wayne has done nothing to better the culture. There is absolutely nothing positive about his lyrics. If anything, you could say Wayne made folks step their mixtape game up...other than that, he can leave & never come back and be barely missed

    • Anonymous

      Being emotional in some (most of his songs arent) songs does not mean you suck. And considering hes on interscope/aftermath which are HUGE labels, he probably is forced to make music that'll sell. Swizz beats is a trash producer. Jay-Z fell off and sold out so bad. Nobody can even remember his parts on songs like "run this town" and "empire state of mind" which by the way are pretty desperate for sales too...

    • Cage

      Actually that's a pretty solid list... That Anonymous cat hit the nail on the head

    • deandre

      Although part of me agrees i'm hoping that he'll retire And Swiss beats definatly should retire Infact heres a list of people who should retire. Every young money member Swiss beats Jay-Z (started off with a spark but now garabage, what a hypocrite) Soulja Boy Rick Ross Gucci Mane Wacka Flocka (how can u take this guy seriously with such a stupid name) OJ Da Juiceman Eminem (only rapper on this list that I'm a fan of, just needs to drop a classic album and leave on a good note, he dissed Benzino saying he's too old to rap when Benzino was 45.. and Em's approaching that age.) I've gotta be leaving some people out.....

  • YouSerious?

    umm..Rapping isn't a job, so you technically can never "retire" from it.

    • Anonymous

      Does he get paid? Does he file taxes on it? Yes? Then it's a fucking job, you stupid cunt. He might put 'musician' as the technical term, but the music industry is an industry nonetheless and therefore any artist signed under a label in the industry is 'at work'. Jesus, you hip-hop nerds think you know everything. On a lighter note, thank god he's going.

    If you believe this is actually going to be Weezy's last album - you might as well believe that bearded men in caves took down the World Trade Centers and there were WMDs in Iraq. No way Weezy is going for good. This "retirement" will be as real as Jay-Z's after the Black Album

    • ShNga

      Ya, they get paid to well and they are probably so used to the limelight. Just like Eminem, he says being famous is a curse yet he continues to release music and promote.

  • OneNaTrillion

    This is just a stunt so he can take a 2 year break and come back and be more popular. Its just another marketing ploy to sell Carter 4 and have him sell big when he makes his comeback. If yall dont realize this, its probably bc youre 15

    LOL at all the hatin ass dirtbags on here. Wayne is an icon. Im sure he wont retire, but come on give this man some respect.

    • CD

      No they'd rather comment and talk shit about how they think he sucks! If they don't like his music then they should just shut the fuck up and don't listen to it!!! And @ anonymous #2: Yeah lollipop was a bad song but everybody makes bad songs, if you don't like his music then don't listen to it but just because you don't like his music doesn't mean shit!

    • The MG

      lmao @ cccccc. I love that spoof.

    • Anonymous

      An icon for teenage girls who only care about catchy chorus and hot beat. How can you put up with him i mean his voice should be enough to convince you he sucks... if not the stupid similies "Lick like a lolipop".....

    • cccccc

    I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, GuruBids . com

    “I’m bowing out still on top,” he says. “I’ma make y’all want me when I retire. I’ma make y’all be like, ‘Nooo!’ I ain’t leaving out this bitch when y’all be like, ‘Yeah, it’s about time, dawg.’" ==================== Yeah, it's about time, dawg...

  • Zach

    Soooo... he's saying Tha Carter V won't be out until 2013?

  • Disisisi

    Just a trick to sell more records when you come back from retirement, kingdom come was jay's worst album ever and but sold pretty big because it was a comeback album, should've retired in my opinion

  • illmatic

    All I can say is...THANK YOU GOD

  • Kendall Walters

    i dunno of any rapper that has retired yet.. that could at least make money while doing it.

    • Anonymous

      I dont know any rapper that is retired. ALL of them still rap somewhere. It may be a small venue that you think they aint workin but they workin. Kool moe dee, Kurtis Blow, Afrika Bambata, Big Daddy Kane, Dougie Fresh. They all still working, LOL.

  • John_boy

    THANK GOOODNESS!! This is the best news to hit the hiphop world since Wayne was sentenced to prison. The rebirth of "real" Hiphop begins the second this syrup throat bum retires. Bout damn time!!!

    • CD

      Rebirth of hip hop??? It never died and will never! It's not a religion, it's music!!! Different people have different styles! If you don't like his music then don't listen to it, don't just get on the internet running your mouth about something that makes no sense!

  • OK

    Sure it is. Jay and Em said the same thing at one time.

  • New Rule in Hip Hop

    If you retire...then go away and never release another album.
