Lil Wayne has publicly declared his grievances with Cash Money Records and co-founder Birdman on social media, and now the rapper is speaking out out for the first time since filing a $51 million lawsuit against his longtime label home.
“I have no words,” Wayne says in an interview with Rolling Stone. “I’m super-numb to it, to tell you the truth.”
Without going into full detail, the rapper adds that the lawsuit has affected him: “I’m human. But it’s nothing that a good blunt can’t cure,” he says.
Aside from his label troubles, Wayne spills that his long-awaited album, Tha Carter V, is “super-done,” although its release is still uncertain. “I would have released it yesterday if I could,” says Wayne. “But it’s a dead subject right now. It’s a jewel in the safe. It’s that stash-house money.” For now, though, he’s working on The Free Weezy Album, which he “guarantees [is] going to be something dope.”
The rapper also adds that he’s reconsidering the idea of retiring — he originally planned to call it quits following the release of Tha Carter V. “I’ve thought about it. But for a person like me that bleeds, eats, sleeps and s**ts music, it’s hard to do … When I go home, I want my actual house to be a vacation,” Wayne explains. “And I might give y’all three new kids from four different women. You know how I do it.”
