Lil Wayne set to retire following Tha Carter IV

That’s right folks, from the mouth of the Martian himself. Weezy says he wants to, “bo[w] out still on top.” The rapper has faced a slumping career following his release from prison, plagued by failed singles, album delays, and negative reviews. With all this, it’s not a stretch to imagine that the beleaguered MC is seeking salvation from his fall from grace – as rapid as his sudden rise to dominance. Of course, the rapper had a more graceful reason on hand: “I honestly think it’s unfair to my kids.”

In an interview with XXL, the rapper nonetheless teased his fans with the promise of his next studio offering, “I’ma make y’all be like, ‘Nooo!’, I ain’t leaving out this bitch when y’all be like, ‘Yeah, it’s about time, dawg.’ Carter IV might be my last one. I’ma make y’all be like, ‘Fuck!’ Yeah, nigga, I’m gone.”

Unless you’re entirely new to the world of hip hop, you know retirement claims mean next to nothing. Think of…why bother: just about anyone with a big name, and, yep, chances are they’ve made clear – and gone back on – intentions to retire. Nonetheless, if Weezy sticks to his word, one can only hope “How to Love” isn’t representative of his final Carter chapter.
