Weezy Retires From Rap? Lil Wayne Pulls a Jay-Z; Says He’s Hanging Up Mic
Is Lil Wayne handing in his Emcee Card?
If you thought his recent duet with Paris Hilton signified the beginning of the end, you were on to something. Weezy says he’s been busy plotting his retirement from hip-hop — and he’s already got plans to skate off into the sunset.
“I’d be a skater/sports analyst,” Wayne, 30, told MTV of his post-rap plans. “My day job will probably be sports analyst, and I’ll skate all night instead of being in the studio all night.”
The serial spermanator is promoting his 10th solo album, I Am Not a Human Being II, which is set for release in February.
“…Man, I’ve been rappin’ since I was 8 years old. I’m 30 now, man. That’s a long time, man…I signed my contract at 11, I went platinum at 14…Thank God I haven’t put out an album that hasn’t went platinum. To just keep it going like that, I think not only am I being greedy, I’m fooling myself to think that it will continue to be that great.”
Calm down, Hip Hop Headz; Wayne isn’t the first rapper to threaten to drop the mic. Jay-Z “retired” from the game in 2003 — only to return to the studio three years later.
