Kendrick Lamar Shares His Thoughts On Lil Wayne’s Reported Retirement
News broke last weekend that Lil Wayne planned to retire from the rap game indefinitely, which sparked commentary from his peers including Drake to Chance The Rapper.
Now, another top tier lyricist is weighing in on Weezy’s impending retirement. While in the studio until the break of dawn, Kendrick Lamar shared a video message, Miss Info reports, on why the “A Milli” artist should reconsider taking a step back from the mic.
In the beginning of the black and white video, Lamar is seen rapping along to throwback Weezy tracks like “Gangsta Sh*t,” and “Hot Boy” before he cuts the track to give a PSA.
“We going all the way back, when he was motherfuc*in 16, 15 years old on some Hot Boys sh*t,” the “Money Trees” rapper said. “N*gga talking about retiring and sh*t. Fu*k that. Retire, quitting rap whatever you want to call it. Fu*k that, n*gga.”
Labor Day weekend, Wayne tweeted that he’s mentally spent thanks to the industry and his dealings with Birdman and his Cash Money imprint. “I am now defenseless and mentally defeated & I leave gracefully and thankful I luh my fanz but I’m dun.”
