The rapper took to Twitter to share a cryptic tweet saying that he was done just hours after Miami police were called to his home following reports of a shooting.
“I AM NOW DEFENSELESS AND mentally DEFEATED & I leave gracefully and thankful I luh my fanz but I’m dun,” Wayne wrote.
Two hours later, he added: “ain’t lookin for sympathy, just serenity.”
The “Forever” singer has been involved in an ongoing legal battle with business partner Birdman since 2015. In January of that year, Lil Wayne sued Birdman the CEO of his label Cash Money Records for a whopping $51 million, according to Uproxx.
The 33-year-old New Orleans native hasn’t put out an album since “Free Weezy” in 2015. Lil Wayne’s legal issues with Birdman also fault the producer for having yet to put out the long-awaited 12th studio album by Wayne, titled “Tha Cartver V.”
In 2012, Wayne said he would retire after that album, noting, “Man, I’ve been rappin’ since I was 8 years old. I’m 30 now, man. That’s a long time, man.”
I’m good y’all don’t trip
On Friday afternoon, Miami police were called to the star’s home after receiving reports of a shooting. The call, however, turned out to be a hoax .
“Luv to the miami PD for always being alert, attentive, & appropriate. Thk u,” Wayne tweeted, before hinting at retirement.
“I’m good y’all don’t trip,” he tweeted once more at 10 a.m. on Saturday, still not giving fans a clear idea of what he meant.
