Lil Wayne To Announce Retirement After “Tha Carter IV” Release

Lil Wayne is making sure that Tha Carter IV album is next to perfect before it hits stores, because it might be the last time we get an offering from Weezy.

The Young Money chief covered XXL Magazine’s latest issue, revealing that his upcoming LP could be the end of the line for the platinum rapper.

“I’m bowing out still on top,” he says. “I’ma make y’all want me when I retire. I’ma make y’all be like, ‘Nooo!’ I ain’t leaving out this bi–h when y’all be like, ‘Yeah, it’s about time, dawg.’ Carter IV might be my last one. I’ma make y’all be like, ‘F–k!’ Yeah, ni–a, I’m gone.”

The 28-year-old rapper disclosed that his many children is the deciding factor in his decision.

“Honestly, this is the real truth,” he says. “I honestly think it’s unfair to my kids. I’m super dedicated into what I do. Like, it’s no questions—it’s hands down, I do this. I live this. I don’t have a day out my week that I do something else. I do this every day of my life, and I’m not about to stop, ’cause that’s the only way you can succeed in this business, is to do it the way I do it. I want to succeed the way I want to succeed. You can succeed. You can put out a hit… But to do it the way I want to do it, to be comfortable to do what the f I want to do, you’ve got to work like no other. Like I said, it’s unfair to my kids. So about 30, 31, 32, I gotta get ready.”

Tha Carter IV album is schedule to hit stores on August 29, 2011.
