Lil Wayne Reiterates His Intention To Retire Following

Lil Wayne also discusses his retirement plans, his daughter's new book and his seizures during an appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"

Lil Wayne reiterated his intentions to retire during an appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" last night (June 11). "I want to retire after Tha Carter V, which I hope would be my last album," Wayne says during the interview

But the YMCMB boss, who has discussed retiring before, didn't specify when Tha Carter V is arriving. "My next album isn't Tha Carter V because I think I have to work on other albums with my pop Birdman and things like that. But, after Tha Carter V, I hope I can retire."

Kimmel then asked Wayne what he would do when he did retire. "Everything that I've never had a chance to do," Wayne says. "Regular stuff. Drive your car down the street...Things like spend quality time with my kids."

Wayne and Kimmel then shared a laugh when Wayne couldn't remember the title of the book his teenage daughter wrote with Birdman's teenage daughter. Wayne's daughter Reginae Carter wrote Paparazzi Princesses with Birdman's daugther Bria Williams. The book was released June 4.

The conversation was more serious when Kimmel asked Wayne about his recent rash of seizures. Wayne, who referred to his seizures as "a private medical matter that I've been dealing with my whole life," says one of the seizures was particularly problematic"That one was serious because the house that I was in has an upstairs and a downstairs," Wayne says. "I was upstairs and my homies were downstairs and they didn't even know that I was up there seizing. One of them just was like, 'You know, he hadn't come down in a minute,' and they came up there."

When Kimmel asked Wayne if he was going to have a "homie on alert" in case he had another seizure, Wayne laughed before responding. "I've taken those steps and a whole bunch of other steps," Lil Wayne says, "to make sure that everything's perfect."

    Bullshit. This fucking gremlin isnt retiring, he's just trying to push units based off a lie and not actual talent.
    • CMb
      He most likely is retiring, wayne has been in the game since he was 11, he's 30 now....think about it..and if he does retire Tha Carter V will probably be his best selling carter album

      Lil wayne shouldn't retire hiphop needs him.Just because he has made a few wack records doesn't justify a retirement ,and if so Eminem,Jay z,Nas and any other emcee should retire

    Aye, when YMCM goes bankrupt, and I get laid off, Instead of heading to the welfare line, I'm starting a new family theme park called FAGLAND. Yes, bring all your underage boys and girls so I can rub my cock around their ears. And any twelve year old named stephanie will walk funny after I give her a good rail in the tail. I will let the little boys shove a toaster up my dickhole, but hopefully my pubes dont catch on fire, otherwise I will piss all over my dick to put it out. When I go to FAGLAND, I will fuck the rhinos and shove my cock through the gopher holes. If a cat walks by, I will kill it then fuck it in the butthole, I will also eat its shit if it looks like chocolate mousse. I will bring birdman and lil wayne to FAGLAND, and will gently suck their cockheads until they explode all over my fade. I will do this in repetition while fingering their sweet, moist anus holes. Then I will use their ass hairs to floss the jizz from between my teeth. Yes Birdman, my lord, that is how I wish to service you. And lil wayne, i just want to stick my hand up your ass so I can jerk off your shit, then squeeze it between my fingers, then mix it with my ass butter and serve it to nicki minaj with a fucking souffle. YMCM 4 Life!!!

    Let me assure you he won't retire for Tha Carter 5. He said the same thing about tha carter 1,2,3,4 and still kept going. Tha Carter 5 will also win best album of the year.
