Lil Wayne has been seemingly quiet for the past year but for good reason. He’s finally settled all financial discrepancies with his former Cash Money Records label, and more recently, has become the sole owner of Young Money. Since the dust has settled, fans are now waiting for the highly anticipated Tha Carter V album to release.

In a new a Billboard Magazine cover story, Wayne is very transparent about the space he is in right now in his life, as well as his career. In reference to the Carter V Wayne explained, “I’m very much a perfectionist . . . I don’t know what it’s setting me up for—some big comeback, or maybe some big fall back or whatever—but it’s setting me up for something, and I’m ready.”

Wayne went on to discuss his children, his Twitter etiquette, music features, the reasons he does not write music, and his greatness overall as an artist. Wayne also expressed that he doesn’t see himself retiring any time soon, if at all.

I do think about retirement. I think about how I don’t think I ever will.
