Waka Flocka Flame sent an errant tweet earlier this week saying that he’s had enough of the rap game and planned on retiring at the end of the year. While no explanation was given, his manager/mother Debra Antney confirms that the “No Hands” rapper is calling it quits.
“He talking about quitting. He’s sick of this. We all are,” she told RumorFix.com. “We’re all disgusted with this stuff. You can’t trust people.”
As far as getting new music from Waka, Antney says he isn’t recording or planning out touring right now and that they’re focusing on building back up their relationship as mother and son, as opposed to manager and artist.

UPDATE: Waka Flocka Flame called into the Ryan Cameron Show today to confirm that he is quitting rap. “Yup, absolutely true. I’m tired of going through what I go through, and punk asses always rain on my world. There’s so much different haters, fake smiles, different hugs,” he said. “I’d rather work at Walmart than rap, and that’s my word on God. Yup, I put that on Jesus Christ. I’m not lying or nothing.”
He also justified his exit strategy as a consequence of the hip-hop lifestyle. “It’s something I could never explain to people because they could never understand it, ‘cause they not living the lifestyle. At the end of the day, the people who’s living the lifestyle could understand why I’m doing it.”
