Lil Wayne Talks Retirement, Birdman, Kaepernick & Racism On ‘UNDISPUTED’

The rap world and beyond went up in arms when Lil Wayne tweeted over the weekend making it seem like he was retiring. He calmed those rumors, though, with a new song called “Grateful,” where he clarified the tweet was meant to indicate he’s starting a new chapter in his life rather than end his rap career as a whole.

His ongoing beef with Birdman — which is rooted in the fact Baby hasn’t paid Lil Wayne or his label tons of money in addition to issues with Tha Carter V staying in limbo for years now — was clearly the reasoning behind the problem, and he confirmed that belief this morning on Undisputed.

Tunechi stopped by Skip Bayless’ new show — one he created the theme song for — to talk about the tweet among other sports topics. (Wayne was often one of the more knowledgable guests on Skip’s old show, First Take.)

He said he took to Twitter out of anger after an argument but that he still feels that way. The argument, he said, was between he and Birdman and over the amount of money he owes him.

“I have a family, I have kids, I have a mother — we got bills. This is business,” Weezy said.

“If we make the money right, can you work with him again?” Shannon Sharpe asked.

“No sir.”

“So you’re looking for your pay day and you’re moving on?”

“Yes sir.”
