Lil Wayne has talked up retiring a few times over the course of his successful career. Last Friday (May 3) at the launch party of his collaborative SPECTRE shoe line with SUPRA in Miami, the Young Money captain says fans can expect more music in the near future.
MTV News caught up with Wayne at the party, and the New Orleans native wasted no time in dropping a few bombshells. After saying he would retire after his upcoming Tha Carter V album, Wayne scrapped the earlier plans and intends to have a busy 2013.
“It should be a lot between now,” said Wayne, referencing the period of time between now and the release of his 11th studio album. “Carter V should…I don’t wanna give it no [date] but yeah, it’s no time soon.”
Weezy also speaks on an unexpected pairing with Drake and a pair of veteran Cash Money artists. After being asked about a possible follow up to him and Birdman’s album, Like Father, Like Son, Wayne mentioned that Drizzy may join Birdman and Manny Fresh for a Big Tymers project.
“That kid is so busy, it’s all kind of possibilities,” added Wayne. Also in the interview, the budding shoe designer spoke on NBA player Jason Collins and his recent decision to come out.
