Lil Wayne retires

Rap mogul Li'l Wayne announced his retirement from the music business after a prankster called 911 to report shots fired at his Miami waterfront home.

Local 10 News -- Miami Beach police were called to Lil Wayne's mansion Friday afternoon regarding a supposed shooting, but no victims were found, authorities said.

This is the second time in a little over a year that someone has made a hoax 911 call to report a shooting at the rapper's home on La Gorce Island.

Wayne, whose government name is Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., took to Twitter.com early Saturday to announce he is "defenseless and mentally defeated".

The 33-year-old rapper followed up with another tweet stating he wasn't looking for sympathy.

Wayne hasn't had a hit song since 2011 -- before he was diagnosed with a seizure disorder that landed him in the hospital at least twice.

    He looks like a walking petri dish full of bacteria. ?

  • morenYAHdelsur

    The world finally got to him.

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    NO, Tunechi!!! Every time I saw him in concert it was LIT!!! Hopefully he'll reconsider after some time "away", not just from music, but from all the erroneous bullish!t that I assume comes with it.

  • Karma WhO

    the greatest rapper CURRENTLY alive..i love wayne, his music, his passion for the art, despite what ANYONE feels about him..this man made history!! Will continue to support all your endeavors..

    He has been associated with several hits though through because he is featured on a lot of artist songs. In addition he does mix tapes and is on a lot of songs with other rappers. He will probably still jump on mix tapes and feature on records. If he ever gets his money from Cash Money then he can retire comfortably...

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    He's been retired to me after volume umm 2 of The Carter but awwwww

  • SummerBaby

    My azz is still bumping No Ceilings.

  • SummerBaby

    Is that a tennis bracelet he's wearing? ?

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Misunderstood is my ish....

  • B.Sweet, Bad Mamma Jamma

    Sew petty

  • CaliVirgo

    Lost me after the first Carter

  • B.Sweet, Bad Mamma Jamma

    Meanwhile Birdman is how in these skreets with Toni Braxton.

  • the guest

    Birdman is to blame for this. So many very young brothers seeking fame and end up in the clutches of toxic powerful men. They get fame and fortune but at the expense of their souls and health.

    Wayne wanted freedom and Birdman punished him for it. Retiring is the smartest business and personal move. Save his energy for positive things in life.

  • CaliVirgo

    I see you have your petty pants on too?

  • CaliVirgo

    Hopefully now he can focus on his health and family..peace of mind is priceless I wish him the best

  • B.Sweet, Bad Mamma Jamma

    Petty is in my DNA. Couldn't leave it at home even if I wanted to. ?

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    I can understand that as I only liked a few songs on both of them.

  • Tea??

    Wayne hasn't been good in about 5 years. He needs to retire

  • CaliVirgo

    Lol

  • CaliVirgo

    It just kind of seemed like the direction of his music changed after that. Or my behind is just "old"?

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Lol you're not old, for me it just didn't catch my ear anymore. Drake did but Nicki never did.

  • CaliVirgo

    Nicki never did it for me neither not when you grew up listening to suga t, foxy brown and Lil Kim

  • http://Copblock.org Brenden’s Back #BlockDeez?

    I get it. It can all be exhausting. Hell I wake up everyday tired. Factor in constant attention, syrup, drugs, liquor and the night life. Yeah. He'll be alright. He may just need a break. He's completed his Saturn return, maybe he just needs to chill,,,and part ways with Bird Man...no more mutual masturbation sessions with 'Baby'? hehehe, sorry...
    I'm guessing many of you were unfamiliar with this Lena Durham character just as I was? Someone on insta randomly called her a child molester. Being curious I googled...Um? Wow. I guess because she was young she gets a pass? Admitting to the things she admitted to doing to her sister...Just? Wow...I can only imagine if a non White female or male made the same confessions?

    Baby has just broken this man down. He a crook. Some folks just want to make music.

  • CaliVirgo

    I do however have drakes last one views I think it's called *wispers* I got it from a dude outside walmart he was selling them 6 for$20?

  • Esree

    I take calling the cops without cause especially on blacks very seriously.

    That's standard attire in the garden .

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Lol ain't nothing wrong with that. Eye refuseth to buy a cd for two song I may like.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Right I grew up with Lyte, Monie and Salt and Pep and Dana on wax and she's so not them or Kim lol

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    He's so frustrated and disappointed. I bet he feels betrayed and used. My heart hurts for him and I don't usually pray for any of you hopeless motherfuckers but I do pray hard for Wayne, and I know God will take care of him.

    Just hold on, my love. Everyone gets what they deserve and you deserve all the love and care in this world.

  • CaliVirgo

    That's what makes it great

  • CaliVirgo

    Oan..did you hear from your boy yet

  • Petty Rubble

    I just want Birdman to let Wayne release the Carter 5.

  • CaliVirgo

    I love S&P oh baby baby oh baby baby??

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Yeah he made it safely, thanks for asking.

  • CaliVirgo

    Good I'm glad to hear that.Now we can focus on getting him back stateside

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Push it and Rodeo are my faves

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Yes 6 months there and 6 months in Texas then his three years are done.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Did he have DVDs too?

  • CaliVirgo

    Yall can do it. Just watch that time is going to fly by

  • CaliVirgo

    You know it (o dogg voice)

    "Petty is in my DNA"

    as is the herpes virus, allegedly??

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Lol I hope so

  • Antigone Heart

    Li'l Wayne is probably tired of the Illuminati's control over him, and Birdman's unscrupulous business practices as a handler is only an added distraction. The aforesaid is one reason why I don't support children becoming a part of the entertainment industry.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    I need to find me a new dvd man.

  • Lisa daniels

    Him and a whole of other people. Miley Cyrus.

  • Canary Red™

    Say that!

  • B.Sweet, Bad Mamma Jamma

    You have herpes? How's that working out for you?

  • LeBrick James

    He's retiring? awww.

    One the other hand, I'm sure his music will live on for at least another 40 or 50 days.

  • darealQueenNefertiti

    He tired of the bull. I don't blame him..

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    JOHN CRAWFORD

    OAN: Non-melaninated folk are protesting with assault rifles at the home of Brock Turner, which happens to be in an open-carry state, ironically, the same state in which JOHN CRAWFORD was slain as he walked peacefully through a Wal-Mart. You may remember Brock as the turd who was found penetrating an unconcious woman behind a dumpster in the middle of the night, ran after being confronted by astonished citizens, and only sentenced to 6 months in jail. Crock was releashed yesterday after only serving HALF (3 MONTHS) of his sentence.

    These people are walking the neighborhood with assault rifles...I said assault rifles because it's legal. HOWEVER...NEVERMIND.

  • CaliVirgo

    Beware though some times you can't even see or hear that crap.

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    Some punk called the police to my house too.
    They call it Swatting.

    That chit not good for the soul. Dehumanizing.

    It's actually a smart move, especially since Drake is his artist.

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    I think he's a year or two older than me.
    He should've completed his Saturn Return a few years ago.

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    What about that 'PMW'?

  • CaliVirgo

    Omg, I am so sorry that happened to you. I would have been so pissed I try to limit
    my contact with those people (cops)at all costs

  • KIm

    Good riddance wanksta! Your music sucks and I was done with you when you stated you weren't into dark skinnew women...

  • CaliVirgo

    Tell him how you really feel ?

  • Op2

    Well he did get his attention earthly fame & a bit of fortune. So the deal is completed. Now, it's onto the predictable outcome of most of them: fall from heaven vs fall from grace publicly. See the similarities?

  • http://Copblock.org Brenden’s Back #BlockDeez?

    They're claiming he's 31. Isn't the first one 27-30?

    *I see even Sandra list him at 33. Baller alert or wherever I read it first listed him at 31.

  • http://www.keenready.com KeenReady.COM ?

    Sigh...

  • http://www.keenready.com KeenReady.COM ?

    Correction...Bird man said he needs to become a house husband now and won't let him release another record...

  • http://www.keenready.com KeenReady.COM ?

  • Traci404

    Rap has been dead.
    what we see being performed is CRAP

  • che’lint

    Haha??? Yaass!

  • BlaqueEnough4U

    Did I ?read? right?..
    Lil Wayne....Greatest Rapper of all.??
    Now if you had said, Busta Rhymes, Big Daddy Kane, Krs -One, Nas, Rakim, Heavy D, Ice-T, even sorry ass Jay-Z, Chuck D... then by all means I would have agreed.
    A lot of your rappers can NOT free style at all..... they are use to writers or writing their self down before the blow... They can. NOT just spit or flow.....

  • BrittBrat2005

    Juvenile been back with cash money for two years now with a new deal, but I havent heard any new songs beside his mixtape mardi gras 2..

  • Ni Ni

    I know it must be mentally draining, especially when you have to be sober and actually have to deal with things. I dont believe he's done, not unless he had a come to Jesus moment. He ain't giving up the money.

    Speaking of which...isn't it strange that none of today's stars are giving up the fame to follow the Lord while there on top? I remember back in the day, you did have a few who were at the top and decided to give it up. I imagine it must be harder nowadays with all that the world has to offer.

  • MzFutureLCSW

    Rest easy.

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    Me too I'll try everything before I call them

  • Karma WhO

    In a battle, seriously non of the old heads can take down wayne..let's be serious. .and no new rapper, none of them can see wayne. .sorry..o n i said greatest rapper Currently alive, had i said ever it wouldve been Pac, same goes for pac, none of them folk u named could see pac..

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    You said a mouthful. Amen

  • Tee Bullock

    in my opinion that title belongs to Nas he murdered Jay Ether

  • Chile_Pleeze

    now playing my head....."cash money taking over for the nine nine and the twooooooo thousand"...

  • Alisa

    Sounds like a suicide note I think he has been suicidal for years but has been keeping his demons quiet. When they started yelling so loud and you can't quiet them down not even for a minute. You kill the noise

  • hoochie?

    Boy, bye!

  • SG

    ???

  • Tlowe89

    Totally agree. I heard anything old foxy Brown song the other day and her lyrics gave me my life. They actually made sense, unlike these pretend female rappers these days like Nicki, and singers trying to rap like Beyonce. This generation needs a Lil Kim or Foxy so the can understand what a real female rapper sounds like.

  • imright

    thats wat they want. ?? hope not

  • imright

    FREE THE CARTER 5 ?

  • Black Dynomiiiite!!!

    This generation has them. Check out Rapsody, Jean Grey and K'La. Great artists, but underground and don't get the press like the rest of them.

  • Angela

    Really?...Ether?...So he took an L...There's a ding in his armor....Changes not a thing....

  • BlaqueEnough4U

    Aww i left out Pac. Yes, I believe they can. That is why Iove Cyphers.

  • Angela

    Seriously this is thee funniest thing I've read in a minute....I'd bet loooog paper Jay would wash Wayne in a freestyle battle....Remy would eat Wayne's food early...Are you for real?....If Fox is on her meds I would bet on her against Weasel in a freestyle....Are you a basehead?...

  • Karma WhO

    Only thing to do is put your money on it, im taking wayne, period..not only on bars, but longevity and consistency as well..

  • S T

    Ohhhhh I forgot that part !!!! Awww man , those were the days. ;0)

  • Brook York

    I don't believe that he going to retire, he should take break and take care of his health.

  • http://disqus.com/ yoliewinecorporation

    Who cares

  • Emily post

    Well I am sure that All the positive and inspiring music and lyrics he brought to the world will some day be appreciated.

  • http://poshhub.com poshhub

    I don't know what Lil Wayne will do after he retires because nobody will hire him with those tattoos. People are listening to music on Soundcloud. https://soundcloud.com/popsalsa/sets/popsalsa-slow

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    I agree that Nas won that ROUND with Ether - arguably one of the hottest Battle/Dis tracks of the time, but overall Jay won the war. He kept slinging hit at Nas!

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    #TRUTH

    Add Pac, B.I.G., and Snoop in his early days too. Don't believe me? Google hjs early Freestyles!

  • TeeTee

    ditto

    Go enjoy your time with your children.

  • ebonics

    hahahhaha! I love Marty Marrrr

  • ebonics

    THANK YOOOU! Some REAL Emcees you listed there! Not to mention Cormega, Big Pun, Big L, Mobb Deep, hell even Onyx came with hotter ish than wayne could ever muster up! Wayne isnt a real emcee hes a mainstream rapper, so obviously this Karma person knows nothing about REAL hip hop. Wayne is a gimmick, good riddance weezy we wont miss ya ;)

  • ebonics

    You cant be serious right now, hahahah, Wayne is lame as hell maaaan. Any rapper out the east would ether wayne in a millisecond. Cormega would body him instantly. He wouldnt even show up if he had to battle any of the Wutang clan members. Come on now....

  • ebonics

    Yesss Foxy would lay wayne to rest without even trying ... hahah

  • ebonics

    Yes, now I would take Juvi over weezy ANY DAY!

  • Sexy CJ

    +1

  • SpiceGirl

    he doesn't have to work another day in his life....I do believe he is cool in the money department...

  • SpiceGirl

    Im Team Weezy......and his underground mix tapes....were fire to me!

  • BlaqueEnough4U

    He is a rapper not an emcee.... those two are two different things.

  • BlaqueEnough4U

    Thank you... so it seem I left out a lot of people.. lol

  • Enoughsaid2020

    He doing this so the contract with Birdman, can expire. He will be back, and probably on Jay Z label. Take care of yourself Lil Wayne, your fans will be here.

  • Karma WhO

  • Karma WhO

    She cant even pull herself together to pull up at a battle..stop it, murder 1!

  • 4th Gen SF

    This is a good thing, no?

  • BlaqueEnough4U

    Everybody I listed are still alive except Heavy-D and you name Pac.... well lets agree to disagree

  • ebonics

    Thats only if Gillie the Kid was still writing weezys verses for him. Not only is wayne total garbage, but his voice is the most annoying voice in rap history... I cant say hip hop cause wayne is less hip hop than justin beeber. I am actually a fan of all coasts. Twista would murder wayne, Cormega would obliterate him in an instant. Bun B would body him, Hell Brotha Lynch would probably win a battle rap wit him.

  • Karma WhO

    we'd have to see that happen...but i definitely dont!!

  • BlaqueEnough4U

    I gave you a list of black rappers who are still "ALIVE".....

  • Karma WhO

    no we are not still on this 7 days later..have a blessed NEW week..

  • BlaqueEnough4U

    Look i am slowly figuring out how thus response stuff work... is that okay, sir... laughing.
