Lil Wayne Retirement: One Album Away?

by at . Comments

Lil Wayne just turned 30, but he's been in the game since he was a teen and has recorded a mammoth number of hits. For that reason, he's already talking retirement.

Plus, 30 years old for a rapper is like 55 for the average human.

The hip-hop superstar told MTV News that after he releases his upcoming Tha Carter V.

"I know ya'll want me around for a little bit and Carter V is my last album," Weezy said.

While the rapper is serious about giving up music, he has other professional ambitions.

Skateboarding.

"I've been rapping since I was eight years old. That's a long time," said Wayne.

"When I like to do something, I end up loving to do it real quick. When I love to do something, I'm fully focused on it and it only. Music is sometimes not that it."

"I'd be a skater or sports analyst" he said. "My day job will probably be sports analyst and I'll skate all night instead of being in the studio all night."

Fortunately (or unfortunately), the days of Lil Wayne providing NBA color commentary (maybe then he wouldn't be denied entry by the Thunder) are a ways off.

Before Tha Carter V, Weezy is set to release, I Am Not a Human Being II on February 19.

Lil Wayne Quotes

Lil Wayne: I don't do too many [drugs]. I just smoke weed and drink. But I'll never fuck with no more coke. It's not about the bad high; it's just about the acne: Cocaine makes your face break out. I'm a pretty boy.

The world is about to end in 2012… ’cause the Mayans made calendars, and they stop at 2012. I got encyclopedias on the bus. The world is about to end as we know it. You can see it already. A planet doesn't exist - there's no more Pluto. Planes are flying into buildings - and not just the Twin Towers. Mosquitos bite you and you die. And a black man and a woman are running for president.
