Mack Maine, Reginae Carter & Lil Wayne Himself All Confirm He Will Not Be Retiring From Rap After His Recent Tweets

Mack Maine, Reginae Carter & Lil Wayne Himself All Confirm He Will Not Be Retiring From Rap After His Recent Tweets

Early this morning, Lil Wayne went on Twitter to say he feels “defenseless” and “mentally defeated”, as well as to say he loves us fans but he’s done with music aka he is going to retire.

As a big Tunechi fan, it’s always sad to hear Tune say words like that. The only thing I can think of that made Wayne feel like this is his current lawsuit against Cash Money Records and trying to get away from Birdman, so I hope that’s still going well.

The good news is that Weezy went back on Twitter a few hours later to tweet “I’m good y’all don’t trip”. Mack Maine event mentioned Mr. Carter isn’t the quitting type and he loves us fans too much to leave. Wayne‘s daughter Reginae also confirmed he wouldn’t be going nowhere.

In related news, Rick Ross offered to buy out Lil Wayne‘s contract from Cash Money and make him a Maybach Music Group artist, Lupe Fiasco called Wayne an inspiration for pushing every other rapper to do better, Missy Elliott said she is praying for him, and Chance The Rapper reminded him that nothing and no one in this world can defeat him. You can read all of the tweets after the jump below!
