Lil Wayne claims he plans to throw in the towel after dropping “Tha Carter V.”

On this February 19, Lil Wayne will release the highly anticipated sequel to his 2010 album I Am Not a Human Being. Yet despite this news of the LP’s impending release, Weezy says he may soon call it quits on his music career.

In a recent interview with MTV, Lil Wayne said that he’s planning to retire from making music after releasing Tha Carter V, the fifth installment of his critically acclaimed series. The New Orleans rapper explained that in his decade-plus professional career in Hip Hop, his interests have expanded to other activities while his passion for recording tunes has increasingly waned.

“I know y’all want me around for a little bit, [but] Tha Carter V is my last album,” he revealed. “I’ve been rapping since I was 8 years old; I’m 30 now. That’s a long time, and I like to do so many more things, and when I like to do something, I end up loving to do it real quick. And I love to do something, I’m fully focused on it and it only, and music sometimes is not that ‘it.’”
