Lil Wayne Unsure Of When He Will Retire

Weezy explains that while there's no expiration date on his career, he'd like to become a better father - even if that means ducking out the game.

After hinting that Tha Carter IV might be his last album, Lil Wayne is backpedaling on his statements. Speaking with MTV News, Weezy explained that he’s “not sure” when he’ll duck out from the game, but promises that he won’t drag it through the years like some of his peers have done.

“I'm not sure; I'm not gonna Brett Favre y'all," he said. "I'm not gonna draw it all the way out the whole year: 'We wondering, is Wayne gonna do this?' But the honest answer is I don't know."

Wayne, who just dropped his new mixtape Sorry 4 the Wait , explains that he’s content with where he’s at in his life and would prefer to focus as much on parenting as he does on his career.

"I'm so settled in my life right now," he told us. "I have my kids; they're wonderful. My daughter has her career ahead of her now. I have to focus on that, and I have to put the same focus that I put in my career. ... I want to become a better father, I want to become a better man to my woman, and those things take time. And time takes away from this. So the honest answer to that [retirement] question is, I don't know. Maybe so."

    What does Wayne mean by retire? No more albums? No more shows? I'm tryna figure out because the nigga got a tattoo on his face that says "I Am Music." Not I Make Music or I Love Music. I Am Music. so how could he stop being what he is? He's been in the game so long how could he hang up his jersey and just be a spectator? Even if he just makes mixtapes for the hell of it, is that really retiring? For all that he might as well keep making albums. If he keeps making albums he might as well get the show money too. See what I'm sayin?

      I know what u mean cuz i always think about that. Like how come rappers gotta be so dramatic when they could just drop little bits of music here and there for the fans. Like if brett farve played second string, He'd still help the team but minus the broken bones. But yea i mostly agree that he's right tho because its honorable(and kinda practicle)to drop your career to raise your kid. also i wouldn't expect it from him but it''l keep him out of trouble not being in the stoplight.

  • Tha Carter 2

    STOP HATIN ON MY FAVORITE RAPPER U DIMWITS!! you guys probably have Wayne songs on your iPod yet you still jump the HATER wagon cuz you think it's cool to hate on such a successful rapper. Lil Wayne was the force dominating hip hop during 07-09 now he's lost the dominance to u know who but still he's still more successful than every other rapper. So stop hating
