Lil Wayne Plans to Retire After ‘Carter 5′ Album

Lil Wayne Plans to Retire

It looks like our prayers have been answered: rapper Lil Wayne, 30, plans to retire after he releases his final solo album, Carter V, reports Rap-Up.com.

“I want to retire after the Carter V, which I hope would be my last album,” he said during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday.

Weezy said he plans to spend “quality time” with his 4 kids including Reginae, his 14-year-old daughter with former wife and reality TV personality Toya Wright.

Wayne has plans to release other albums prior to the release of Carter V including Like Father, Like Son 2 with Birdman.

His well-publicized health problems also play a part in Lil Wayne’s retirement.

He said Miami heat star LeBron James reached out to him during his latest hospitalization for recurrent seizures. But he doesn’t plan on attending any Miami Heat games if the NBA Finals returns to Miami where he owns a home.

“They did tell me that I’m allowed back whenever I want, but I don’t think they want me there, so I won’t make it hard on either of us,” he said.

Weezy also addressed his comments about sleeping with Chris Bosh’s wife (“I was too turnt up that night”) and his love for skateboarding.

    :cosign: But the problem is most of these entertainers carry the FALSE notion that their reign on the top will LAST forever (beyonce, wayne, rihanna to name a few) so therefore they WILL HAVE TO LITERALLY HIT ROCK BOTTOM before they realize its time TO TAKE A BREAK, and do something else. YOU CAN ALWAYS COME BACK.

    “This is going to destroy the Kardashian family,” Leyla told S t a r. “It’s bad. It’s really bad. It’s just embarrassing. But if I were Kim and about to have a baby, I would want to know.” :tea:

    Their reported romance began in July 2012 when the rapper allegedly spotted Leyla dancing to “Mercy” in the front row at Revel’s Ovation Hall in Atlantic City. Kim was seated in a VIP box.

    “He invited me back to his hotel room, but I refused, as I felt it was too rushed,” Leyla said.

    To add on to the :offtopic:

    Excerpts from his NYT interview…

    On his girlfriend Kim Kardashian: “Any woman that you’re in love with or that loves you is going to command a certain amount of, you know, energy. It’s actually easier to focus, in some ways….I’m the type of rock star that likes to have a girlfriend, you know? I’m the type of soul that likes to be in love and likes to be able to focus. And that inspires me.”

    On the backlash he received after appearing on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” and had Kim throw out her while closet: “That was from a place of love. It’s hard when people read things in a lot of different ways. You know, the amount of backlash I got from it is when I decided to not be on the show anymore. And it’s not that I have an issue with the show; I just have an issue with the amount of backlash that I get. Because I just see like, an amazing person that I’m in love with that I want to help.”

    On his impending fatherhood: “One of the things was just to be protective, that I would do anything to protect my child or my child’s mother. As simple as that….I just don’t want to talk to America about my family. Like, this is my baby. This isn’t America’s baby.”

    On his beef with the Grammys: “I don’t know if this is statistically right, but I’m assuming I have the most Grammys of anyone my age, but I haven’t won one against a white person. But the thing is, I don’t care about the Grammys; I just would like for the statistics to be more accurate.”

    On how his life struggles (like his mother dying in 2007) have affected his music: “Creative output, you know, is just pain. I’m going to be cliché for a minute and say that great art comes from pain. But also I’d say a bigger statement than that is: Great art comes from great artists. There’s a bunch of people that are hurt that still couldn’t have made the album that was super-polarizing and redefined the sound of radio.”

    On knowing he was going to be a star: “I knew when I wrote the line “light-skinned friend look like Michael Jackson” [from the song “Slow Jamz”] I was going to be a big star. At the time, they used to have the Virgin music [stores], and I would go there and just go up the escalator and say to myself, “I’m soaking in these last moments of anonymity.” I knew I was going to make it this far; I knew that this was going to happen.”

    ______________
    From what I read, the wife was trying to comfort the little boy and the dog just saw his tantrum as a threat and just lunged for him. She tried to pry the dogs jaws open as she screamed for her husband but he bled to death by the time they got to the hospital. I say all the time, no matter HOW you raise these animals, spoil these animals, and how sweet and loving and kind they are TO YOU…they are territorial by nature. If anything threatens their territory (INCLUDING YOU) they will attack. Damn shame.

    I dont know many who have..and if they have they probably arent to worried about being right with God anyhow.

    The lyrics is “Tunechi got that fire..And, these hoes love me like Satan..” Fire meaning ..or as I like to think, :lol: thats its more word play from wayne.. fire d!ck? fire weed? “Fireman” is one of his biggest bangers..?

    And the hoes love me like satan.. :facepalm: Now..i feel yall…’fore ppl come in here talking out the side they neck…this is for the sake of discussion..if you cant “discuss”, poot broccoli..

    This one is ..weird. But hell is none for fire…satan, I guess? loves fire…but the real imagery is in the video. This lyric is pointing back to the sex cult stuff in there imo. Project Monarch.
