Lil Wayne is working on recording his 'final solo album' and only focus on collaborations
Lil Wayne is recording his 'final solo album'.
The 31-year-old rapper is reportedly planning to retire and only focus on collaborations after his upcoming 11th studio album 'Tha Carter V' drops in May.
He told MTV: "I personally plan on this being my final solo album, yes, and it's definitely the final Carter album. It's the final Carter album. It's stopping at five."
Lil Wayne joked he would only record another solo album for "$25 to $35 million", adding, "I didn't smile when I said it."
The star, who founded record label Young Money Entertainment in 2005, which signed hip-hop stars Drake and Nicki Minaj, has reassured fans he will still work with his artists and collaborate with other stars.
He continued: "I plan on it being my final solo album. Whenever I have to pitch in for a Young Money album, a 'Like Father, Like Son' album and something like that and maybe something out the blue."
But he insists he's working hard on his next record, saying: "It seems like it will be impossible for me to work this hard again for anything else."
Lily Wayne's album 'Tha Carter V' will be released on May 5.
