Lil Wayne Considering Retirement After Releasing 'Tha Carter IV'

Lil Wayne is considering retiring after he releases his upcoming album Tha Carter IV, according to One Thirty BPM.

Just when I was nearly convinced that Lil Wayne would release more Roman numeral-labeled Tha Carter albums until I die, Weezy decided he will possibly call it quits.

Part of the reason for his potential retirement is that he wants to go out while he's still somewhat on top. His other reason is more down to earth. "I honestly think it's unfair to my kids," Weezy said in a recent interview with XXL.

Considering his post-prison slump, he might have the right idea here. Then again, no rapper ever stays true to their word when they declare retirement, so perhaps fans of Lil Wayne will have more music to look forward to far in the future.

lol who ever thinks lil wayne is a good rapper sould just shut the fuck up. Now that lil wayne is retiring hip hop can return to normal and be good again. Artists such as J Cole, Kendrick Lamar, and XV are the savors of hip hop. Lil wayne is the villain. All he raps about is weed and girls and how awesome he is anyway. Hip Hop is no longer dead now that lil wayne is gone.

Weezy is the greatest rapper alive right now , so i think he makes a good point as to why he wants to retire. He is not "giving up" as some people are commenting , he is just simply saying that he thinks its time to move forward in his life with his family & so on. He is , & will always be one of the greatest rappers known to the music community , so he could stop for a little while & who knows , maybe a few years from now , he'll make an album that blows all his other one's out of the water. I have mad love for Weezy & he needs to do what he needs to do for himself & his kids. His real fans will support whatever decision he decides to make. I love you & your music Lil Wayne <3

i really think lil wayne should not quit. he still has music still in him, and quiting now makes it seem like he is giving up to some competition.

Lol, another idiot fan who thinks Lil Wayne is the best rapper alive right. Ever heard of Eminem, Hopsin, Tech N9ne, Redman, Methodman, SwizZz, Dr. Dre, Andre 3000, Murs, or Jay-z? That's just naming a few. Face it. Lil Wayne is one of the worst rappers alive right now.
