Lil Wayne Plans to Retire After 'Tha Carter V'

Lil Wayne says he's calling it quits following the release of Tha Carter V, which is expected to drop sometime next year.

After failing to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live a few times due to health issues and just because, Wayne finally appeared on the Los Angeles-based late-night TV show on Tuesday. The rapper talked about his favorite basketball team the Miami Heat, his recent hospitalization after experiencing multiple seizures and even dropped a bomb: He's planning his retirement. 

Wait... haven't we heard this before? Kimmel wasn't buying it.

"Will this be a real retirement or one of your usual retirements, or a rap retirement when you make 12 albums after that," Kimmel cracked. "I mean Tupac died and he's still making albums."

"Yes that is true," confirmed Wayne. "I want to retire after Tha Carter V." 

"What will you do when you retire? Be a Walmart greeter?" Kimmel responded.

Wayne said he wants to hang up his cap and do regular things, like a drive a car and spend time with his kids.
