Lil Wayne Says He's Putting Rap On The Backburner For Skateboarding

Lil Wayne also speaks about how he got bored with Rap.

Lil Wayne is taking his love of skateboarding one step further. During an interview with DJ Drama, Weezy explained that he's putting Rap on the backburner so that he can entertain his love of skating, justifying his decision by stating that his fans "deserve some peace from me."

“I picked up the skateboard and I thought it would be a hobby, but it’s a lifestyle. You have to be fully committed. In order to be fully committed, you have to live that lifestyle. What these young kids say right now, you have to be about that life. I guess I’m about that life," he said. “It’s kinda of putting rap on the backburner, that’s all. Rap is a taking backseat to skating. That’s alright. But I kind of feel I deserve that. … I think fans deserve some peace from me."

But before he dials down his output, the Young Money rapper plans on releasing his Dedication 4 mixtape, for which he's rapped over beats including "I Don't Like," "Ca$hin Out" and "Burn." For Wayne, his relative quietude in the game stemmed from his boredom with Rap.

"I just felt like it was time. I got bored," he said of recording Dedication 4. "Yeah, I mean, being me, I always feel like I ain’t done nothing yet, so I’m always looking for the next thing to do. But other than that, it does get pretty boring when it comes to the rapping and stuff. I’ve done so much of it, I’ve been doing it since I was eight. I’m going to be 30 in September, and I’m still rapping. So I kind of feel like I’m getting old."

      Damn son u stole the words right out of my mouth- what 30 year old is skateboarding if he's not like a Tony Hawk or doing it professionally with other sports related to that? Wayne must be back on the syrup. He keeps stealing his artist flows so unless he can re-invent himself he sounds fake and immature

    Good. Get out the game. The game does not need one more fake ass nigga with shitty lyrics. Maybe he does not have anyone to ghost write for him anymore and that is why he is "tired" or "bored" of rap. Real Hip Hop niggas never get tired or bored of rap. Rakim, Wu Tang Clan, Masta Ace, Nas, A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots, Mos Def, Talib Qweli, De La Soul, Kool G Rap, KRS-One. All these hip hop legends have been MC-ing since Lil bitch wayne was a lil bitch boy and they are still coming out with fire lyrics, better than anything out today in the mainstream. It is the media and labels do not support real hip hop. They give all these fake niggas like Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Drake, Tyga an imagine and tell them what time of music to put out to DUMB NIGGAS DOWN. When is the last time you heard a REAL meaningful song from Ross, Wayne or Drake? Cmon Son....WAKE UP you so-called "Hip Hop Heads"....ya mother-fuckers wouldnt know REAL Hip Hop if he slap ya in the face.

      "Do you like tupac? He was going to concentrate on acting and take a break from hip-hop which is basically the same thing lil wayne is saying" Can you back up that statement with some evidence? Besides, Wayne isn't going into movies.

    • Anonymous

      although i hate wayne...you haters post some idiotic comments. half the legends you listed have been awful for a while and if they are still producing great music, it doesn't come close to the music they were producing before. They might not get tired or bored of rap but they certainly lose there hunger. The only MC who has been in the rap game for a while who hasn't lost his hunger for me is Chino xl and even then he takes ages to produce music. Do you like tupac? He was going to concentrate on acting and take a break from hip-hop which is basically the same thing lil wayne is saying

  • E4G

    I like some of the music he puts out and alot of his old shit, and just to clarify, pop music, stands for popular music. I would say that lil watne music is popular, which means alot of folks listen to it. I'm not here to hate or debate this shit. I'm just saying we all have our reason for what we don't like, but take it easy haha. Some of yall talk straight filthy about this nigga like he did something to fuck your life personally. Of recently lil wayne has done some shit that i dont quite agree with, mostly the shit he wears but who cares thats that niggas look not mine. I like specific songs on each of the carter albums, but even though i dont like this "new direction" lil wayne has taken in recent years, I aint gonna knock the nigga for doing his thing, I aint no stan and im not a hater. I just listen to what i like. But let's be serious tho, you telling me that if lil wayne asked you to hang out with the nigga, you say no cause of some songs you didnt like? You trying to tell me that he deserves all the shit some of yall are saying? And last but not least, are you trying to tell me there not one lil wayne song you dont like between the carter 3 and the carter 4? If you say no, get the fuck out of here cause you lying to me, and everybody on this website and most importantly yourself.

He's given us classics, and I agree his recent stuff doesn't top Carter 1 and 2, but you can't deny he's top 5 right now(top 3 actually). So many other wack rappers and yall choose to hate on Weezy. I bet yall them lame ass "real hip hop" fans who only bump Common(who sucks) and fuckin Mos Def. Them old ass fools don't even sell units, plus Wayne is lyrically shitting on them. Carter 2 still the best rap album of 2000 era. Fuck anyone who says any different(and Carter III is shitting on the majority of whats coming out today, including yall lame as opinions)

  • NY

    All I have to say is please let this be true, quit rap. It's easy to see the greats in hip hop because they still put out music after years making it and they just have the love for hip hop. He's only 30 and saying he's too old, bullshit music doesn't have an age where you have to retire, my favorite rapper GZA has been in the game for 21 years since his first release and he was born in 1966 before my own parents and that doesn't affect my judgement at all because I know it's all about the music which GZA consistently puts out great music.

  • iamhiphop

    Wayne, from the start of his career, has always been a below average rapper. The only reason Tha Carter 2 was good was because Gillie Tha Kid wrote all of his lyrics. Everything after that album was straight-up garbage.

      Pop songs don't need to be nice and squeaky clean. 75% of the songs played on the radio are raw and dirty. The cleanest song on the radio now is that Call Me Maybe song. Listen to one of Rihanna's songs; there's nothing clean about that shit. Lil Wayne perfectly fits in the pop category because of his appeal.

      Wayne automatically qualifies as a pop artist because his shit is mainstream friendly. It appeals to Top 40 radio.

      Yes it does. Wayne is a pop artist.

      its not, wayne been spitting like himself for years, i can give you rebirth. but lollipop is about sucking dick and a girl wanting a thug... the only difference is the beat. on any of these songs the only thing thats really "pop" like is the beat. because anyone in the game can come up with a good hook, that doesn't make it "pop"

    why is it so hard to fathom Lil Wayne signing 2pac to Young Money records. He already has the biggest and best names in the industry under him running the game. And what does Wayne kissing other men have to do with his music? Pac was a damn background dancer before he made it big...with a parted flat top Ever seen the video of him when he was like 18? Completely different. Wasn't a "thug" or "gangster", and goin on and on about how he respects women, then all of a sudden he "don't love dem hoes". He used super proper and formal speech and had a quire boy vibe to him(he used proper speech in interviews when he was older but not to that degree) So how is he different from Wayne? Wayne has a much better flow as well...just sayin

      Blah, blah, blah. All i see is a dude dickriding Lil Wayne. Pac and Wayne are different from each other. Pac did empowering songs about uplifing the black community while balancing that with bangers about gangsta shit. Wayne is a poser who talks about nothing but money, drugs, and bitches. Wayne had a few political songs back in the day, but doesn't do that shit anymore. Pac would NEVER sign to YM because Wayne's music sucks and his image is one big lie. Wayne has ZERO talent and will never be in the same lane as Pac. That's just disrespectful in Pac's part. He's not running shit; Eminem is. "Pac was a damn background dancer before he made it big...with a parted flat top" So what? Besides everyone had flat tops back in the 90s.

    your just a lame as hater. Wayne is just as iconic as pac was when he died. Look how he lights up the crowd when he performs. Wayne would have signed Pac, cause Pac would have seen how talented Wayne was and they would have teamed up(with Wayne leading cause he currently runs hip hop pretty much). And just because others have branched off into other genres doesn't mean they did it better than Wayne so stfo

His music sucks ass and he has no talent. He's not iconic, he's just another hot at the moment pop star like Justin Bieber. Pac would never co-sign, sign with, or work with Wayne. Pac would call out the bullshit Wayne does. Wayne doesn't run hip-hop; he's a pop artist. Eminem runs hip-hop. That last sentence you said was some bullshit; Wayne ruins EVERY track he's on.

    if this nigga stops rapping hiphop is over. name 1 rapper uglier than wayne with so much swagger and confidence to cover it. thats what he and biggy taught me; no matter how fat or ugly u are; confidence is a mofo. the world wouldn't be like it is today if it wasn't for wayne, don't be fooled.

When he dies, it'll be just another rapper dead. He hasn't done anything for hip-hop but fuck it up. He's a pop artist, don't believe the hype. FYI, Wayne has always bit other rappers' styles and the opus ones who bite Wayne's style are his YM bitches Drake, Nicki, Tyga, etc.

    • Weezy#1.4.Life

      yea he's going to be remembered as the next pac. How can you not award him that right. Look how much he has done for hip hop. Hip Hop album says have been on slow decline, yet Wayne has been the small breath of air keeping it alive and bringing in money by bringing in ATTENTION. Attention is what keeps music or anything else alive. He branches out and does other things than music. He features on other artists of different genres albums. Pac would be proud of Wayne if he were still alive and I even believe he would agree to sign to Young Money records and help Wayne build even bigger empire. If Wayne were to die, he WOULD become the same vessel of icon as Pac was and still is to this day. Look how many people bite Waynes style same as they did pac(Nas, Ja Rule). Yall know its true but are just to afraid to admit it.

      @anonymous shut the fuck up, ur opinion's not valid. Whatever i say is right ! ...all these fuckin retards on this site and the world, all this shit's an opinion anyway, who gives a fuck, you like wayne, i like shady, he likes jay, she likes biggie, who gives a fuck, to be honest, wayne has some clever metaphors sometimes, its his style, but the topic of his songs i don't really agree with, others may but whatever, fuck it, im more into hearing the lyrical puzzle of rhyming, how the rapper puts the words together, the flow, the aesthetic of the rhyme itself, the image of the words in your head, the science to it...metaphors r nice, but personally, that shit's for poetry, rap is more than just poetry. dnt get me wrong, writing a poem is damn easier than writing a song with complicated rhyme schemes and all that, it requires real mastery which only real emcees have. lil wayne is not an emcee, he is an entertainer. he is like novacane if u kno what i mean. music like wayne dulls the senses and if that's what u want then cool, go fuck with that shit, i dnt care nor should i care. everyone needs to grow up and just listen to their music, appreciate what's good, give credit where its due, and be an actual fan, not a spokesman or sum shit. peace

      ^Jay-z, Kanye, and Eminem are all legends in their own respective ways. fuck wayne, ruined rap with his commercial ass ways, and then opened the door for all these other whack ass clowns. anyway, jay, kanye, and eminem's hobby is rapping, not skateboarding...a hobby as skateboarding, when ur a grown ass man, is only acceptable if your fuckin good at it, not if ur just another random ass skater, fuckin around with a board n shit, damn. AND how dare u compare wayne to those three legendary cats u mentioned. also the other fuck up comparing 2pac to wayne, the fuck? 2pac is part of the genre called "rap" and part of the culture called "hip-hop". wayne is part of the genre called "pop". YMCMB and MMG should be put into that genre so people aren't confused anymore. Rap is totally different from what YMCMB and MMG are releasing. Shady Records, GOOD Music, etc. still respect the craft, the culture, the vibe, all of it, of classic hip hop. Art should not be commercialized and if it is, it is no longer art. It becomes a product.

Armadillos use their thick shells as ARMOR to shield them from predators. Wayne coats his ride with bullet shielding armor to protect him from his predators/enemies as not to go out like big and pac did(They both got smoked while in they rides) or 50(who took 9 shells....WHILE IN HIS RIDE). I'm not wasting my time explaining lines cause yall to slow to comprehend his wordplay or read between the lines.

That niggas still young as fuck. You got niggas pushin 40 like Jay-Z, Nas, Common, etc, puttin out some of the best material of their careers while this nigga aint even 30 yet and he slackin. I could see if he slacked for 1 year, or 1 album, but this guy aint been right since Tha Carter III. 4 years ago. And he aint drop anything close to classic since Carter II. 7 years ago. Her: i dont know maybe he'll come back to us. but its obvious he's in he own world right now Me: He makin himself look like he was just a fad and he really aint on the same level as the greats. Her: maybe he was jast a fad.... Me: Smh if he was thats sad cuz at his best he was just as talented as the greats."

    with so much faggoty in this article, we have to look at the bright side, I mean he will be gone for a while.

  • Aspiring Rapper

    Somebody gotta tell all these whack emcees to retire So that maybe hip-hop can go back to displayin' that fire Bitch niggaz should acquire a new hobby like skateboarding As long as they stop audio recording their corny rhymes, then maybe hip-hop could go back to being what it was at one time

    Wayne might as well retire. He has contributed to the downfall of quality music in hip-hop. Hell, he's not even hip-hop, he's hip-pop. Hes a weak rapper who can make pop songs. There's a thousand rappers who can rap circles around Wayne.

    HE CANT EVEN DO A KICK FLIP THE SECOND MOST BASIC TRICK IN SKATEBOARDING

  • clark kent

    This guy is the definition of selling out.

  • hjk

    do you remember when he wanted to leave rap and do rock shit? he sucked in it so probably in winter he'll announce quitting the skate game

  • Stanley Burlington

    Wayne can leave but he will never, EVER be replaced. Wayne is one of the greatest rappers to ever touch the mic. I love how there are a bunch of lame ass dudes on here trying so hard to come up with reasons and negatives to hate on Wayne about. Its 100% clear that yall are just mad he's better than your favorite rapper(or outshined them on there own shit....JADAKISS LMAO). But serious Weezy#1.4.Life I agree with everything that you said. Fuck these lame ass dudes hating on Hip Hops king

    • defree

      Tupac, Biggie, Rakim, Nas, Mos Def, Common, Talib, MF Doom, Immortal Tech, Big L, Big Pun, Ghostface, Gza, Nas, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, etc,etc...He's far from all of them, in lyrics, flow, style and I don t want to speak about the way he is dressing...So get the fuck out of here with pussy faggot of 12 years old who missed his childhood to going skating now, like a baby dicovering a new toy!!He kills our Hip Hop with his hip pop,so gtfo with your skate, and please stay far, far, far......

      one of the greatest rappers to ever touch the mic you cant be serious put down the crack pipe you have hardly any brain cells left

  • Weezy#1.4.Life

    man fuck yall. Yall are just haters plain and simple. Royce Da 5'9??? Fagot ass can't even make one decent record without Eminem and Slaughterhouse to back him up(Slaughterhouse sucks too btw). Eminem is good, but not as good as Wayne. Wayne bodies him on "No Love" so gtfo. And to mr NYC Representative. YES Wayne has done a hell of a lot for Hip Hop. He's grabbed peoples attention. People who don't even normally like hip hop, by doing features with other artists from different genres. He's helping Hip Hop sales. All that conscience rap BS don't fucking sell. No one wants to hear that stupid bull shit save for a select minority. Also his songs DO have meaning, and substance and YES ill lines... "watch me as bust this, lay it down like construction/when I spit the mic get wet cause my voice is like seduction" ^ WHO THE FUCK CAN TOP THAT!? He has storytelling. He even rewrote Eminem's "Stan" and made it better. Also Wayne is a business man. Young Money has the best collection of artists since Cash Money and anyone of them will kill Royce da 5'9 or any of them other lame as Slaughterhouse cats

    • whaaaaaat?

      wow Im speachless... you really thought wayne out rapped eminem on no love?? thats crazy shit... you seriously need to sit down and listen to that track again and study the flow and the rhymes... what wayne did on that was pathetic.. eminem should've deleted wayne's verse.... its very clear that you dont know anything about rap at all and you just listen to whatever radio tells you to

    Only reason why he "Its kinda of putting rap on the backburner" is because he seen that ymcmb is coming to an end. Everyone getting tired of their Hip-Pop culture bullshit. So I guess smart move for him, that way when it all falls down he can say all that happen while I skateboarding..... #GameOver #BestNewsOfTheYear

  • !!!!

    this is the best news I've heard all day.

  • Hiphophead9

    oh yeah!!! lil wayne prolly gone retire soon, best news i heard in forever

  • Weezy#1.4.Life

    damn yall some hatin ass dudes man. Weezy been killin the game since his cash money days. Look how much he's done for hip hop and all yall do is hate. He's given us classics, and I agree his recent stuff doesn't top Carter 1 and 2, but you can't deny he's top 5 right now(top 3 actually). So many other wack rappers and yall choose to hate on Weezy. I bet yall them lame ass "real hip hop" fans who only bump Common(who sucks) and fuckin Mos Def. Them old ass fools don't even sell units, plus Wayne is lyrically shitting on them. Carter 2 still the best rap album of 2000 era. Fuck anyone who says any different(and Carter III is shitting on the majority of whats coming out today, including yall lame as opinions)

      wayne isnt even top 30

    • NYC Representative

      WOW. This guy right here is just really ignorant. "Look how much Lil Wayne has done for Hip-Hop"....i am speechless..Lil wayne is one of the biggest reasons Hip Hop is lacking creativity, ill lyrics, flows, criteria, story-telling & most importantly MEANING. All lil wayne raps about is how much money he has...clubs...degrading women...driving the most expensive cars..doing drugs. etc. What exactly has he done for Hip Hop? NOTHING. Lil Wayne is NOT Hip Hop...he is Hip POP His flow never changes and he raps that easy peezy ABC 123 bubble gum snap your fingers type of rap. Shit that only dumbed down ppl can relate too.

    • tittysprinkles

      Lil wayne dick rider. How can you listen to anything post the drought 3 and still think what you just said makes any sort of sense. Open your eyes and ears.

    Wayne doesn't even have to rap anymore, he was already the best rapper alive during the carter 2 era (don't believe me listen to Tha Mobb) and only a few can match what he once was...but other than that i hope dedication 4 is a return to form for the fans sake.

  • keepit100

    Only reason he's doin this is cuz his ass is irrelevent now a days. Gimmick is over!!

  • Big C

    Yeah when you make the same kinds of songs and rap about the same things and constantly put out the same kind of material it'll get pretty boring

  • Anonymous

    Skateboarding isn't paying him millions like the rap game is. Best believe he's still gonna crank out albums. He's not stupid. He knows right now is when he can make the most money by putting out the same product again and again.

    I bulletproof the ride, now I feel like armadillas Bitch, real G's move in silence like lasagna Oh my God, Becky, look at her butt, Tunechi Boy I send them bloods at your ass like a tampon Automatic leave 'em dead in the living room Get it? Leave 'em dead in the living room I'm a venereal disease like a menstrual bleed I get paid by the letter like abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz When it Waynes it pours weezy f baby and the f is for phenomenal when I was 5, my favorite movie was the Gremlins. Ain't got shit to do with this, but I just thought that I should mention understand I been in that water like I was snorkeling. Understand I been in that water like I'm a dolphin. And I know cheaters never get crowned. So I play "fair" like roller coasters and clowns. I told her to back it up like burp burp, And make that ass jump like shczerp shczerp get paid to kill time. dead clocks my flow is nasty like c y phyllis "Her pussy was so wet that i swam to her butt" Pure Lyricism.... Weezy please do't leave.

    Wayne has been putting out poor quality music as of late anyway so I could careless. His flow has gotten worse, nigga doing all kind of weirdo as shit in his spare time and on top of all that he can't stop talking about being a blood for 4 seconds and I just can't listen to that shit. I ain't testing his gangster or nothing but how many times you going to put blood in a song my dude. It's ridiculous, not to mention that once again his lyrics are fading in comparison to his Carter 1 - 2 days.

  • fuck young money

    this fuckin faggot needs to leave hip-hop alone. so does his young dummy crew and 99% of the faggots on the radio too

  • Anonymous

    I'm hopin dedication4 will revive Wayne's career. I think he's capable of giving us the classic "Mixtape Weezy" and maybe 1 more classic or close to classic albulm. He just has to leave all the singing,autone and mainstream shit alone. Go back to jus trying to be the best...Dis is a big-ass if tho no doubt lol

    Wayne needs to quit talking nevermind rapping it's all nonsense that comes out his mouth

    YES!!! Thank the Lord that's one less wack rapper to leave the game. You won't be miss corny ass nigga. Now if just the rest of YMCMB,MMG,Coke Boys,Waka Flaka,Gucci Mane, 2 Chain's and all these other trash ass rapper follow in his foot step's the game will start to get hot again.
