Lil Wayne May Call It Quits After ‘The Carter V’: Should the Hip-Hop Star Retire?

In a recent interview with MTV News, hip-hop superstar Lil Wayne (real name: Dwayne Carter) revealed that he plans to retire after the release of his album "Tha Carter V." Wayne claims he's been rapping since he was eight years old and burst onto the scene as a star at 16. In the mid-2000s, the Grammy-winner emerged as a solo force in rap, putting out the "Dedication" mixtape series that has been deemed a classic.
After his successful album releases in "Tha Carter" series, Wayne also helped grow his father Birdman's label Cash Money Records. He even established his own company, Young Money Entertainment, which boasts major artists Drake, Nicki Minaj and Christina Milian. And of course, he helped popularize the catchphrase "remix, baby," which he says in every song that features the technique with his verses.
Keep in mind, "Tha Carter V" won't be released in the near future. First his upcoming album "I Am Not a Human Being II" will hit stores on February 19, 2013. "Tha Carter V," Wayne's 11th and possibly final CD, will follow that. Don't get too discouraged, Weezy fans. Jay-Z once retired in his early ‘30s and returned soon after. As for what Wayne would do if and when he leaves the music biz, the rap mogul says he'd be a sports analyst and skate all day instead of being in the studio. Sounds like a plan. What do you think: Should Lil Wayne retire?
