Lil Wayne - Lil Wayne Retirement Will Come After Tha Carter V

Lil Wayne and his potential retirement has been in the news for some time already, and now more than ever it looks as though the multi-platinum rapper is really ready to leave music behind and focus on pastures new when he gave an interview to MTV News earlier this week saying that he plans on retiring from music once he drops Tha Carter V.

The rapper is planning to release his new album I Am Not a Human Being II in February (13), but the album following that could well be his last. The rapper instead wants to work on some of his other projects, particularly his newfound love of skateboarding and his clothing line Trukfit and lets not forget that he's also head of one of rap's biggest labels, Young Money Cash Money. So we can see why retirement would seem like an option.

Of course, Weezy wouldn't be the first rapper to announce their retirement a little prematurely as such veteran rhyme-smiths as Too Short and Jay-Z have both announced their 'retirements' in the past and only stuck with it for a few days at most. Whether Wayne proves to be the exception and stays away from music for good will have to be seen, as only time will tell.
