In a recent interview with Hip-Hop magazine XXL, rapper Lil Wayne disclosed that he plans to bow out of the rap game while still at the top.

“I’m bowing out still on top. I’ma make y’all want me when I retire”, Weezy says in the August 2011 issue of the magazine (which he covers).

So why this sudden change of heart to leave the craft he has mastered so well? “I honestly think my career is unfair to my kids. Honestly this is the real truth. So about 30, 31, 32, I gotta get ready to retire,” the father of 4 revealed.

Weezy’s ninth studio album “Tha Carter IV” is set to hit stores on August 29th.
