Lil Wayne says he’s “good” following a series of confusing tweets early Saturday (Sept. 3) morning that many perceived to hint at his possible retirement from music.
Lil Wayne Calls Seizure Scare a ‘False Alarm’: ‘I’m Good!’
“I AM NOW DEFENSELESS AND mentally DEFEATED & I leave gracefully and thankful I luh my fanz but I’m dun,” Wayne posted around 4 a.m. EST.
A couple of hours later, he followed up, saying he wasn’t looking for “sympathy, just just serenity” and then later that he was good, “don’t trip.”
The meaning behind Weezy’s messages is unclear, but given the hip-hop icon’s recent issues with his health and Cash Money record label, they have led many to wonder whether this was an announcement of his retirement. And though his last message seems to resolve things, it fails to provide any further explanation.
Billboard has reached out to Wayne’s camp for comment but did not hear back at time of publishing.
Wayne has suffered from seizures since 2012, with a number of attacks coming this summer. This comes amidst an almost two year battle with his record label Cash Money to put out his reported final album Tha Carter V or release him from his contract.
Amidst Wayne’s tweets, one fan reached out to Rick Ross online asking him to buy out Wayne’s contract. He responded, saying to get Cash Money label head Birdman on the phone.
A number of other artists replied directly to Wayne’s distressed tweets, as Pitchfork points out, including Missy Elliott, Chance the Rapper, Flying Lotus and more.
