Lil Wayne ready to retire after 11th solo album


Rapper Lil Wayne has confirmed his upcoming 11th solo album with be his last.

The rap star has previously hinted he is ready to retire, but now he has announced his next record, "Tha Carter V," will be his final solo endeavour. He tells, "I personally plan on this being my final solo album, yes and it's definitely the final 'Carter' album. It's the final 'Carter' album. It's stopping at five."

The fifth installment of his album series is due out in May, and Wayne insists he will only hit the recording studio alone again in the future if he is offered a big payday. He adds, "Twenty five to 35 million [dollars] would get me to do another solo album after this."

Last year, the 31-year-old told Katie Couric, "I know I'll be able to retire at 35, because I am so ready to retire now." The superstar will continue to make guest appearances on other artists' tracks and will focus on running his own label, Cash Money Records.

Yes, you most certainly are ready to retire. And Yes, you will most likely have people lining up to pay you 25 to 35 million for a CD (Crap Disk) and most certainly you are ready to retire especially since the IRS is next in line to collect all the back taxes you owe on all those 25 to 35 million dollars people have paid you. The IRS has been on your tail for a while so unless you are doing something illegal to support yourself I doubt you will be able to retire as you think you are.
