Lil Wayne plans to hang it up in a few years to become â€œa full-time dad,â€ the rapper told a radio interviewer. He made his widely reported remarks on Angie Martinezâ€™ radio show. S2S Magazineâ€™s site is among the many reporting his retirement newsflash.
â€œIâ€™m gone at, like, 35. Iâ€™m serious. I have four kids,â€ he said. â€œI would feel selfish still going to the studio when itâ€™s such a vital point in their lives.â€
The performer also known as Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. isnâ€™t yet 30, so he wonâ€™t be disappearing from the music scene for a while. By the way, keeping up with Lil Wayne will be a little trickier now that he and Twitter have parted ways. MTV, citing an interview conducted by Paris Hilton, reports Lil Wayne has declared he is â€œon Twitter strikeâ€ due to technical difficulties.
â€œI just shut my Twitter account down because it got hacked,â€ he said. â€œOnce it got hacked, I had Twitter fix it, they changed it and then it got hacked again, so I just shut it down.â€
