Recently hip-hop living legend Lil Wayne, tweeted that he is retiring from the rap game because he was mentally defeated. This morning when he joined the FS1 sports debate show Undisputed with Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe, the rap veteran opened up about his retirement tweet. He told Skip and Shannon, “This was a tweet after an argument,” Wayne told Bayless and co-host Sharpe, regarding his retirement. “The height of my talent, or the height of my career, I haven’t reached that at all.”
Of course we all know Wayne’s frustration stems from the feud with Birdman and the sticky finical situation. Wayne said he’s been pushed to the “tipping point” in the battle with Birdman and Cash Money, who he sued for a reported $51 million in royalties.
Wayne doesn’t want to retire and he absolutely doesn’t want to work with Birdman ever again. When Sharpe asked if he would ever work with Birdman again, Wayne answered, “No, sir.” Asked if he was just waiting for his payment to move on, a smiling Wayne said, “Yes, sir.” Bayless then asked, “That’s all this is about? There’s nothing beyond that?” Wayne confirmed, “Nothing beyond that. Give me mine, and I’ll walk off free.”
