Rapper Lil Wayne has announced that he plans to retire from being an artist in 6 years. Now 29 years old, the rap superstar has said that he will be ready to walk away at 35 years old. He tells GQ magazine, “Basically, I have been doing this for 18 years, that’s reason number one. I have accomplished all that I have set out to accomplish and more.”
“Six years I can do this Lil Wayne thing, and my boys will be about seven and eight years old. And man, it’s all about them then. Whatever they’re into.”
If Wayne does in fact keep his word, and his retirement talk is more than just talk, don’t expect him to drop out of the music business completely. Wayne went on to explain that he plans to expand on his role as an executive at Young Money Records. “I have a label and I’ve only put out two artists (Nicki Minaj and Drake). I have a lot more work to do and it’d be selfish to not focus on being the boss and focus on their projects.”
We will keep you posted if we become aware of any new details in this situation.
