Lil Wayne Still Plans to Retire by 35

The rapper says his four children play a big factor.

Lil Wayne is holding fast to his dream of retiring by age 35. Back in March, the Young Money rapper said he'd like to retire by then and in the November issue of GQ, he repeated the same wish.

“Basically, I have been doing this for eighteen years. That's reason number one. I have accomplished all that I have set out to accomplish and more," he says. "Also, I have a label, and I've only put out two artists [Drake and Nicki Minaj]. 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.”

Lil Wayne also reveals that it's not just the business that's pushing the 29-year-old to step down in six years - his four children play a huge factor in his decision as well. 

“But the main reason is my kids, my children," he says. "Now, if I thought I'd be selfish to my artists, imagine what I think I would be doing to my kids. I have enough money that they don't have to ever do anything—which, they will do everything, 'cause they ain't getting s--t.”

Do you think Lil Wayne will retire at 35 and actually stay retired?
