Lil Wayne Details Plans For Retiring At 35
Rapper Lil Wayne recently detailed his plans for retirement in the November issue of GQ Magazine.
Lil Wayne and Eminem are featured on the cover of the new issue, which lands and stores in stores this month.
In the magazine’s “Music Issue” which also features Eminem and Rolling Stones founding member Keith Richards on the cover, Lil Wayne explains what his life will be like, when he retires at the age of 35.
“I feel like I’ll be a new me, and how good is that? To actually be opening a brand-new door of life at 35? That’d be awesome. Totally awesome. I’m looking forward to it,” Lil Wayne told the magazine about his retirement plans.
The rapper, who has been forced to live a sober life due to the terms of his probation for gun possession charges, said that going to jail was the best thing for him, in terms of beating his addiction to a number of hard-core drugs, including “syrup,” which is a mixture of promethazine, Kool-Aid, soda or sweet candy.
“It just helped me on my way, helped me with life,” Lil Wayne told GQ. “Cleared me up, cleaned me up, opened my eyes to things. I definitely thank God for that moment instead of looking at it as a problem or a bad situation. I needed it.”
In related news, Lil Wayne recently became the first artist in history to land six #1 singles on Billboard’s Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Radio Airplay Chart in just one year.
