Don’t Worry, Lil Wayne Isn’t Retiring


To all the Weezy fans out there, rest easy, because the rap vet isn’t going anywhere soon. Questions about Lil Wayne dropping the mic for good came after his late night tweets earlier this month regarding retirement, but in an interview with FS1 this week, Wayne confirmed that he won’t be leaving the rap game anytime soon.

“The height of my talent, the height of my career — I haven’t reached that at all,” he Wayne in an interview with FS1 earlier this week.

“This was a tweet after an argument,” Wayne said. “I’m a Libra. We’re known to not have real emotions. We’re the only zodiac sign without a heart or soul on the sign.”

He may not have a heart or a soul on his sign, but he does have, as he described it, a “tipping point.” He said Libra’s emotions are controlled by scales and need to balance out.

The social media storm was a direct result of his ongoing dispute with Birdman and the Cash Money label.  The almost two year-old lawsuit, filed by Wayne seeking $51 million in royalties, is still unresolved. As a result, his newest album The Carter V,  is being held by the label and remains unreleased.

Wayne has had enough of waiting.

“It’s business,” he said. “I have family, I have kids, I have a mother. I have bills. It’s business. Once the business is right then everything is right. I did feel that way and I didn’t take the tweet down because I still feel that way. Until something is done about it then maybe it’ll change.”

He expressed his opinion over Twitter earlier this week.

Wayne dropped the track “Grateful” a few days back, giving some more insight into his future.

“New chapter, move on, look back for what?,” he raps.

Artists such as Drake, Chris Brown, Young Thug, and Chance The Rapper  have showed online support for Wayne. But what really shook the internet was when Kendrick Lamar posted a video showing his love for him by rapping Wayne’s “Hot Boy” and “Gangsta Shit,” and making a “public service announcement.”

“We going all the way back, when he was motherf**kin’ 16, 15 years old on some Hot Boy shit. Day one … Talking ’bout retiring and shit. F**k that! Retire, quitting rap, whatever you wanna call it … No! No! No! No!,” yelled Kendrick.
