Lil Wayne Plans For

Lil Wayne: "I personally plan on this being my final solo album, yes, and it's definitely the final 'Carter' album."

Lil Wayne, who says he is working on Tha Carter V, recently spoke about the potential for this to be his last album release as a solo artist.  

"I personally plan on this being my final solo album, yes, and it's definitely the final Carter album," Lil Wayne says in an interview with MTV. "It's the final Carter album. It's stopping at five. I didn't smile when I said it." 

Lil Wayne, who says "25 to 35 million" dollars would entice him to make another solo album after Tha Carter V, also says this won't be the last time he records material.  

"I plan on it being my final solo album," Wayne reiterates. "Whenever I have to pitch in for a Young Money album, a Like Father, Like Son album and something like that and maybe something out the blue, but the way I'm working on this album, it's to me, the way it seems like now,it seems like  it'll be impossible for me to work this hard again for anything else."

In June 2013, Lil Wayne spoke about retirement plans retirement plans.

"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," Wayne said at the time. "But, after Tha Carter V, I hope I can retire." 

Lil Wayne and the rest of the Young Money camp released Rise Of An Empire Tuesday (March 11). The album earned a 2.5 out of 5 in its HipHopDX review. "Where We Are Young Money portrayed the label as one big Playboy-Mansion-style party, Empire offers a gloomy portrait of a house divided," HipHopDX said in its review

    Wayne really thrived on the introspective thug lyrics. Tha Carter II and everything leading up to it will always be classics. Once he became a metaphor rapper it was alright at first but it really did him in the long run. everyone became really bad metaphor rappers after him

    This is just like when 50 Cent took over the rap game and made Jay-Z fake his retirement for some attention and a little buzz. If Jay didn't marry Beyonce he wouldn't be in the position he's in now and that's a fact!

      did you just compare a clown like 50 to a legend like Hov? fuck outta here!

      that clown made that nigga fake retire for publicity! face it without Beyonce he wouldnt be shit

      two different situations, Jay "retired" while he was hot so many people wanted him to come back. Weezy's career and buzz is falling steadily.

    There's a 50% chance that this is a Black Album marketing tactic. Wayne is gonna make a comeback in the next two years after a year of being a featured artist on songs and/or doing mixtapes. If he is for real, than I hope the best for him, even though he's abysmal. Hope he gets off the lean and do better.

      They make their money on the digital end. 35k is horrible, but means nothing to their bottom line.

      1. This is a bonus album for fans they did for free. 2. This didn't get a lot of hype and was announced just a few weeks ago. 3. It did better than rich gang.

    This is the nest news i heard all day, but we all know no one in music ever retires so he will obviously come back and beg to relevant again.
  • OUCH!
    Every carter is his last carter album, he said it was a trilogy but i guess he didn't know a trilogy is 3. LOL!

    Last album? Bullshit. Just an old school marketing scheme. Any your retiring, then when people buy your crap because they think it's your last album, you announce your not retiring yet...

    That 25-35 million dollar demand sounds like a diss towards baby.
  • siamakf
    He sounds like a slave begging his master publicly to let him not rap anymore. But Wayne, how would your "Daddy" make a living then?!?

      You sound more desperate. Birdman has drake, nicki, and the ymcmb crew. Birdmans doing fine.
    • Anonymous
      "and the ymcmb crew" you know they cost more money than they earn, Drake, Weezy and Nicki and maybe Tyga are the only ones keeping that ship floating

      The rest are still working on their debut albums. The key to success is doing a lot of features at a very low price instead of a few features at a high price. That's why YMCMB suceeds while GOOD Music and Aftermath fail.

      YMCMB are the ones failing with 100+ artists signed, few of them see their shit released, and only 3 of them achieve success.

      YMCMB has no talent.
