On Saturday morning (Sept. 3), the Young Money CEO’s Twitter followers awoke to tweets of Wayne’s alleged retirement from the music industry. “I am now defenseless and mentally defeated and I leave gracefully and thankful I luh my fanz but I’m dun.”

That statement, which was retweeted nearly 40,000 times, was later followed by a reassuring tweet to let his fans know that he’s fine with his decision. “Ain’t looking for sympathy, just serenity,” the “Forever” rapper said, “I’m good y’all don’t trip.”

The New Orleans native’s revelations didn’t go unnoticed from Young Money president, Mack Maine, who said Lil Wayne will remain firm within the rap industry. In response to a social media user’s tweet asking Mack to not let “that boy quit on us,” he then responded, “He won’t… we ain’t da quittin type and he love his fans and supporters too much!”

Chance the Rapper, who collaborated with Wayne on his song, “No Problem,” also tweeted, “I just wanna remind you that absolutely nothing and no one in this world can defeat you. Tell them devils back back.”

Rick Ross, who had a few controversial dealings with Birdman, also chimed in on the matter.

In 2015, Wayne tweeted that he wanted “off this label and nothing to do with these people,” and sued Cash Money for $51 million. Since then, Wayne and Birdman have encountered a roller coaster of progress and setbacks, appearing in a club together on New Year’s Eve, but Wayne was recently recorded yelling, “fu*k Cash Money” at yet another concert appearance.
