Kendrick Lamar on Lil Wayne's Potential Retirement: "He Was the Person That Got Me Into Hip-Hop"


News of Lil Wayne's potential retirement is hitting the hip-hop industry hard and now Kendrick Lamar has revealed his own true feelings about the possibility of Weezy leaving the game.

"It's honestly kind of sad if he'll really retire," said Kendrick. "Lil Wayne helped put on and create a generation of rappers and artists that would not have made it as far without him. Even if he's no longer the king of rap, he was the person that got me into hip hop, and that forever changed my life. To see him not creating music saddens me so much that words cannot describe."

Rumors of Weezy's retirement began earlier this month when the rapper took to Twitter to tell his fans that he was feeling defeated and even hinted that he was going to retire.

Lil Wayne's public feud with Birdman and Cash Money Records has dramatically impacted his career and ability to put out music. The issues originally stem from Wayne's frustrations over money reportedly owed to him and the label not releasing his long-awaited album, Carter V.

In wake of the news, everyone from Missy Elliott, to Drake, Chance the Rapper, Lupe Fiasco, and more have shared their reactions of Wayne's possible retirement on Twitter, alluding to what a loss it would be to the music community. Here's hoping Wayne and Cash Money can work out their differences and Weezy can keep making music for a long time to come.
