According to our family over at Nah Right , Weezy is considering hanging up his microphone after his latest album is released.

“I’m bowing out still on top,” he says. “I’ma make y’all want me when I retire. I’ma make y’all be like, ‘Nooo!’ I ain’t leaving out this bitch when y’all be like, ‘Yeah, it’s about time, dawg.’ Carter IV might be my last one. I’ma make y’all be like, ‘Fuck!’ Yeah, nigga, I’m gone.”

I think i might be happy about this.

Lupe Fiasco Confirms Retirement Rumours

It’s long been rumoured that Lupe’s next album, apparently entitled L.U.P.End, will be his last. In a recent interview with MTV, the rapper acknowledged the rumours and confirmed he was indeed considering retirement: “I don’t want to say I’m 100 percent sure, like, ‘Yeah, this is it.’ But 85 percent.”

Lupe also revealed he has lost his “passion for the music industry” and has suffered health problems as a result of “running so hard doing music.”

If, like me, you’re a fan of Lupe’s music (The Cool was dope for sure, but I think “Kick, Push” is still my favourite) let’s hope he pulls a Jay-Z and returns to the game ‘ere long. Still, even if he does stop making solo albums Lupe has hinted Child Rebel Soldier – the group he formed with Kanye West and Pharrell Williams – is planning an album for release in late 2008. According to Allhiphop.com, our boy’s also working on an album with Gem and Shayla G. Hopefully this means we’ll be hearing from Lupe for years to come.

Finally, if all this talk of retirement is getting you down, check out the video for Lupe’s newest single, “Paris, Tokyo:”
