Woah, Is Lil Wayne Calling It Quits?

It might be that time, after all.

Published September 3, 2016

Fans of Lil Wayne woke up to some possibly disappointing news that he may be hanging up his hat.

The iconic rapper took to Twitter earlier this morning (September 3) to share a personal update that he has been thinking about being done with music. Fans now of course are reacting to this likelihood, with some saying that legends never retire and others wondering what his next move will be.

“I am defenseless and mentally defeated,” Weezy said. “I leave gracefully and thankful I luh my fans but I’m dun.”

The rapper then followed up with another message, related to his retirement announcement. 

“Ain’t looking for sympathy, just serenity,” the 33-year-old added.

Lil Wayne has been in the spotlight for his music talents since he was 14 years old and with almost two decades in the game, he may be looking to focus on some of his business endeavors, such as his new skateboarding app, or he may be looking to get his health back up. Either way, fans are curious to hear more from Wayne on the situation, especially considering earlier this summer he announced two new albums were in the works.

This year hasn’t been totally smooth sailing for Wayne, as he suffered multiple seizures, walked out early on a performance and is dealing with the inevitable stress that comes from beefing with someone like Birdman

Perhaps Weezy taking a break wouldn’t be the worst thing for the rapper right now. 

Check out his announcement in the tweets below.
